    Hi everyone! (This is my first thread so please bare with me) I am currently a sophomore in high school and have started to really look at colleges. My first choice is USNA, but because of the competitiveness of where we live to get in, I realize that I need to consider other options. My dad is an '85 alum and was on the swimming and water polo teams while at VMI. I have heard many stories about what it was like, but my dads knowledge of what it is like now (especially since I am a female) is a bit outdated. Does anyone have some insight on how competitive it is to get recruited to swim at the I/ what the swim team is like now? Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Hey, I actually was recruited to swim for VMI's women team with a small scholarship this year; however, I turned the offer down. I just went on to the Keydet website and filled out a survey like form and the coach sent me an email in response asking to give me a call. The coach was very helpful and even had connected me with a rising first class to be my Dyke. My times weren't extremely fast, but just fill out the form and see where it goes from there. Good luck.
