Just wondering guys, is there an age limit you can go to college, im 18yrs old, 19 in december, and have not finished my last yr of schooling as yet, because i dropped it to focus on tennis, it didnt work out too well, so i was wondering, if i picked up my final year of schooling and did my HSC a year from now, would i still have a shot of getting to college or?

Yeah, you'll be fine...it's not unusual to see 20 or 21 y.o. freshman. In the States, some kids take a year off after high school to just train and get ready for college. However, if you took a lot of prize money from pro tournaments, I think there are more rules to worry about....

Go directly to the NCAA web site (look it up) and ask them. They are the absolute authority and anything anyone else tells you is far more prone to error.
