    My DS is being recruited as an athlete. How much weight does that hold in the admissions process? I'm trying to get an idea how competitive his application is for admissions. He scored a 29 on the ACT but a bit low on the GPA side (3.3U/3.5W).

    It can help -- Will depend on the sport. KP coaches can be very good advocates for your son or daughter during the admission process. My son is a plebe who was recruited for baseball. A bigger factor may be how competitive your state is/how many candidates are applying from there. It would seem like the ACT and GPA would be competitive.
