    Does it help to be a recruited athlete in the application process?

    I believe Objee once said that it increases chances by a certain percent, but it can't compensate for a biggie, as in those who qualify otherwise have a very good shot. Don't quote me though, I'm just a candidate! :biggrin:

    According to a video....... CGA is DIII, non-recruiting. Objee, is that still true?

    In the video, AD Ray Cieplik says they are "in the NCAA D3 which means non-scholarship."

    They most certainly recruit.

    And a coach's input can have a positive impact on the CCEB, albeit not an overwhelming amount (i.e. like offering a scholarship at a D1 school on the sole basis of athletic talent).

    No experience with CGA, but experience with other SA's , D1, and D3 schools. Head coach at A,N, & AF have a very limited number of slots. Those coaches can have players admitted with lower academic standards (all A's & B's, 1200 SAT m&r). Everyone at the academies is on scholarship, athlete or not.
    Sorry for typos....typing on phone.

    I like to include typos too, but sadly can't claim it's because of my cell phone!
