    Ive done a search on this and I cant find the answer. Sorry if it is already posted.

    I am curious. Are some sports recruited more than others? For instance, will there be more tolerance for a low academic performing football player than a cross country runner? Will they take a 25 ACT score or 3.0 GPA for a water polo player but for a swimmer you would need a 29 ACT score or 3.8 GPA? Which are the most highly recruited sports and which ones are less recruited? Im sure there is no official stance on this -so more anecdotal answer will probably only be available.

    if you don't have the required stats academically it does not matter how great of an athlete you are, West Point is in the business of training officers for the army not athletes. If you are on the fence they may send you to USMAPS
