the college sending them. I am steaming. She just got a recruitment letter from the college of her dreams, BUT SHE CAN'T GET IN! I know I posted once BEFORE she got any letters because her coach was egging her on to go to this college or that college, but this is much worse. She won't be able to get into ANY of these schools. She is a C+ student whose grades come from hard work and she tests poorly so her ACT score is unlikely to be over-the-top and her dad and I just want her to take it slow and easy in college. Two year college then a transfer and as long as she needs to graduate. When I told her the truth about the recruitment letters she said, "So you think I'm stupid. Thanks." Then she tramped upstairs. I felt terrible and went up to try to explain what I meant, but she's still angry. I called the admissions office at one of the schools and spoke to the director and told her I didn't think they should send out these letters. My kid is just a junior and what's the point if she can't get in? Basically, the coaches send them and they don't know if your child is an A student or an F student. They hope you will visit the campus and, hopefully, your athletically gifted child will be able to play for their team because his/her grades are good enough to get in. If they can't??? Well, then they pat you on the hand and tell you that if you go to a two year school, you can get in and play in two years. That's our plan already. Honestly, this issue gets me really riled up. Apparently, if she doesn't answer their recruitment applications, they will keep sending them. Jumper has a hard time knowing she is good enough a player to play on a top notch team, but not a good enough student to get into the college and I wish these coaches would stop sending her these notices. It's like salt in a wound.
