OP - best luck to your college search.
I also have played with some junior who have been playing since 5 years old, their parents have $80/hr on lessons every week + camps, tournaments, ect. I can still beat them at age 17. This is pretty sad since I am pretty much self taught and have played half as long as they have and more than twice as old as them. Time and money spent does not always = results.
