I have been contacted by a parent who has a daughter interested in the academies. This potential candidate is appears qualified on paper (great grades, volunteer, girls state, two sport athlete and letter-winner, etc). This potential candidate has said that she wishes to quit her spring sport as she has lost her passion and motivation for it. Instead she would like to volunteer for a disabled child during church, volunteer at our local hospital (she has expressed an interest in medicine), volunteer for an organization that helps special needs children workout, improve her ACT scores, become more involved in key club and National Honors Society, and start working at a job after school. She has lettered Fr. and So. year, and is also a team award winner. Her parents believe this may impact her application negatively. Any suggestions on if this potential candidate should quit or any suggestions on what she could do instead that would look better than one season and one letter? Thank you in advance for your time in helping me help this candidate.
