My son dug a hole his freshman year because he started a business and was unaware of service academy's. He supervised 24 people at 14 yoa so he has a good explanation for not having a 4.0 GPA. Straight A's and great resume now. But he is so involved in ROTC and Police Explorers it's unlikely he will get a varsity letter unless he gives up one of those which would be sad because he loves those and is in leadership positions there. Do you think that a varsity letter is a crucial must have thing? He has played JV team sports, is athletic, in shape, and did very well on fitness test. Thoughts?
