my parents both went to princeton and my older brother is next year. i’m a sophomore girl and want to go.
my grades are good, but not insanely good at all. i’m in all honors classes and two APs. there’s A- or two and then mostly A+s and maybe an A, but i lack extracurriculars besides running. those grades aren’t good enough to get in.
i also want to run in college, but princeton’s times are impossible. no one laugh at me, but as a 19:30 5k and 10:45 3k sophomore girl, could this be realistic? (the 3200 standard is 10:25). i also have some injury issues so injuries can be huge setbacks for me.
i obviously need to get my times way down, is it possible to drop that much? i run 30 mpw. should i do more? basically just how do i get really good and get these times? thanks!
