I'm a junior in high school and currently run cross country and either indoor or outdoor track. this year, I took two AP classes, both of which I had the test last week.
Tomorrow I can't attend the meet, because I have tickets to the Yankees game. I told my coach, and he flipped out because I've been missing so much practice (which have 100% gone to actual studying from 3-10 at night). Right now I have a 3.9 gpa and around upper 1800s for my SATs.
Would it be better just to drop outdoor track (I'll always do XC because everyone I know does it) and concentrate on the last 1.5 months of school? Or just go to every single last meet and practice (if he remembers, he told me I had to our I'm done)?
Do colleges look a lot at extra curricular activities? Either I drop outdoor and go do some community service (twice a week, hospital stuff probably), or stick with this shit and work my ass off to finish the year. Overall, I'll have one sport a year, and possibly another with minimal community service if I keep running.
note: I suck at track.
