Hi all, Every couple months, I have a phone call with the head coach of my sport from USMA. Last time, I asked him about the possibility of me going to prep school, but he said my scores were too high. He said they were looking at about 10 people, and were highly interested in me, and then he called admissions to open my portal early for me (this was in July). However, he also said that since he is only given a couple slots to help recruits get in each year, he wants me to get in on my own. Basically, my GPA is a 3.45 but my ACT is a 33composite, and I'm just wondering if it's possible to "half help" a recruit. For the USMA coaches to have any impact on a candidates application, does it fully count as a slot that they used? Thank you.
