    Hello,

    This is my first post, but I am certain that I am not a troll. I am a rising Junior (2 days til school starts) and have been on the track team since freshman year. I show commitment by showing up to all meets and practices. I have actively improved my times (I have made USAFA CPFT Standards), but I don't know whether I will be able to get Varsity this year. Senior year won't matter, because applications will already be in by the season's start. I am still putting in tons of effort to reach the varsity level, but if I don't, will my commitment support me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Commitment will of course look better than the other option, which would be no commitment. As for making varsity or not, all you can really control about that is doing your best and enjoying what you do. So if I were you, I would focus on having fun and doing the best that you can do, and let the rest take care of itself.

    Thank you so much! I consider myself very dedicated and committed to making it into an academy, and I will do my best.
