My collegiate goals are to attend a school for both their academic and athletic reputation. With strong grades in an IB program, it is important to me that I attend a school where I can flourish academically. I am an excellent candidate for your team because I have found a healthy balance between athletics and academics, demonstrated by my grades and extra-curricular activities as well as my athletic profile. My desire to be highly successful in more than just one aspect of my life is what separates me from other candidates. My strong work ethic that I apply to all areas of my life separates me as a college athlete, primarily because it is a form of insurance that I will dedicate the time needed to succeed at your school academically and build my future, while simultaneously focusing on my athletics.
