    The application checklist suggests to list all activities (athletic & student) through 12th grade. My son is now a Junior, should he list the activities he plans to participate in and the sports he plans to letter in as a Senior? Just want to be certain all his credentials will be used to calculate his Whole Person Score. He wants to have his application complete this summer. Thanks!

    If he is playing a fall sport (soccer, football, track,etc) it is fine because most schools will start practice during the summer, thus even in July they are on the team in a quasi way. I personally would not put a sport that begins in Oct (i.e. Basketball or Wrestling)

    The WCS (Whole Candidate Score) is made up of many components. ECs, such as sports are a minor component. It should not be overlooked, however, it is just as important not to put dominance regarding it. The PAR (Prior Academic Record) is the largest percentage by far regarding the scoring process. You can be the Varsity Football Captain, but be non-comp because your SAT is 1800 with a 3.0 gpa. ROTC scholarship boards will look at the WHOLE package.

    I would list all the intended activities, and address them in the narrative box. "plan to participate in chess club in my senior year". Get those applications in this summer, and list all the activities!
