Sports programs

I’m really passionate for sports and I know about your Football and Basketball teams. But what about soccer and baseball. I play select soccer right now and want to go on to the pros. I also have a 3.92 gpa and am currently 5th out of 25th in my class.

Hi @Liltrooper,

Being a Varsity high achieving Soccer or Baseball player is just as appealing to many Top colleges as being a Football or Basketball player.

I would continue doing the sports you care about. All the top colleges including MIT have both Soccer and Baseball teams.

Being a top athlete in soccer and baseball will still make you a competitive applicant! If anything, your skills will make you stand out more, since there are less athletes who compete for recruitment spots on college soccer and baseball teams. Hope this helps!
