I just don't want to take chances when it comes to studies. Lately he is arguing with me that he does not need a high GPA but would rather have a better tennis ranking. His aim is to play lower D1.
I think it's a good idea to visit some campuses early on, as suggested by you, so that he will make up his mind and work towards the target with a purpose.
All AP courses in freshman year now!!! Must be a private school, right? With that kind of transcript he should be targeting the most selective schools in the country.
