My D will graduate with 8 varsity letters. She was a team captain last year and is one this year. My question is the following: Is one varsity letter just as good as 8? Does a person with one varsity letter get just as many "points" in the category of athletics as a person with multiple letters? I ask this because I have heard of canidates that don't have a varsity letter and then join the cross country team in their senior year just so they can "check the box."
