Discus: What Are My Chances?: February 2003 Archive: HARVARD ATHLETIC HOPEFULL
By Awsdcsw11 (Awsdcsw11) on Monday, February 03, 2003 - 09:14 pm: Edit

i am an alpine ski racer, age 15 (sophmore). i have been racing since age 10, and skiing since 3. by the time i am a senior, i will be at or above the level of the current Harvard ski team members. i would definately like to be scouted for this team. my academics alone would definately not get me in to harvard, but i am hoping this sport will give me the edge.

1400 SAT 1
3.7 uw /4.2 w GPA
no SAT II's yet
5 Ap's by senior year (probably will get mostly 4's)
president and founder of Wall Street club
4 years school soccer, 10 club soccer
7 years ski racing
decent EC's other than that, dont feel like listing them

i am only a sophmore, so i am hoping to improve all my stats by senior year.

Awsdcsw11, I'd guess you are in pretty decent shape if everything continues as you suggest. Assuming your scores improve by senior year (very likely), you'll definitely be in their academic ballpark. The athletic part could certainly be your hook. Good luck!

Um, I don't think that the skiing team gets a lot of pull at Harvard. It's practically an intramural

why'd you take the sat as a sophOmore?
