Hello all, I am a college student applying to West Point. I have the opportunity to walk on to the Crew team at my college, but since it is first semester, I am a little worried about my grades taking a hit with the time commitment. I am a AROTC cadet (non-contracted), I have two science classes with labs, a foreign language, and an English class. If I row, I will have to switch or drop my Chem class and lab. If I don't do rowing, I am planning to get involved with community service. I also have several varsity sports and letters from high school, and I was a team captain in two sports. My question is: Will my WCS take a bigger hit if I do rowing now but possibly have lower grades or focus on grades and community service for now and try rowing spring semester? Thank you!
