Hmmm...... Here is something interesting about my application process to the CGA. I sent in my stuff a while ago, and while waiting, I get an e-mail from the track coach(Dan Rose). Although one would think that this may be a general thing from the CGA, since I checked off that I was interested in continuing Track, it seems to say to me a little more than intended. Here is what the letter said: "Dear Ryan, Your name was forwarded to me as a potential recruit for Track and Field here at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy yet I do not have enough information regarding your event/s and your best performances in those events. If you are serious about competing in track at the collegiate level, please fill out and return the track questionnaire below. This will help me evaluate your potential to compete here at CGA. The overall question that come to me is the words “potential recruit” and “forwarded.” After all, would a service academy ask someone about their track record if they did not meet their standards from the rest of the application. If they are looking at my application, they would only forward my name if I met their requirements(although not necessary saying that I'm in). Unless this is all a computerized thing to pass names around. This is what is bothering me, besides waiting for the answer from them. Overall though, I could be totally off about my idea here. But hey, what do you expect from someone with high hopes. I just wish Dec. 15 would come soon though(date of acceptance), waiting is just a pain of uncertainty. Anyone have any thoughts about all of this, maybe some insight if this is a computerized thing or a hopeful sign? (come to think of it though, Salesianum ((my high school)) never did record any of my track times, and any that were from the county were only from one meet(((no idea what happened to the rest)))). Anyone else running, is running, ran track? Any insiders to the CGA who know anything about this?
