I have a question about Varsity letters and the Academy. I have played high school and club sports every year in High School as well as off season workouts both with School and at the gym. My freshman year, I played freshman football and I started off the season on Varsity track, but encountered a season ending injury. The injury was nothing serious, but it put me on crutches for a bit. Since I could not do any kind of sport involving running or jumping for a year, I took up swimming. My sophomore year I was on JV, but now as a junior I swim practice on varsity and swim the majority of events at meets on Varsity. Unfortunately for me, our team is the best in the conference and our sectional by far, and based on my times, which would get me a varsity letter at any other school in our conference, I will not be swimming at Varsity conference and receiving my letter. However, it is more than likely I will receive it senior year. My question is, does not having a Varsity letter but being a varsity athlete at the time applications go through seriously hurt my chances of acceptance? I have a 3.7 uw GPA, an FBLA officer position and I am a Cadet Major in CAP and I am in the running for Wisconsin cadet of the year. I know this site has zillions of identical topics like this one, but I have yet to see one asking about being on varsity but having no letter. Thanks for any responses.
