Response to Not what I meant
I look at it this way, soccer may open a door that may not otherwise be available. For example, my son may get an opportunity to attend a school as a result of the combination of his grades and soccer abilities that might not be available via grades alone. Most highly competitive academic schools require that you bring something else to the table besides grades. Lots of kids have high GPA's (especially from some public schools where grade inflation runs rampant) and high level colleges are looking for something additional. Perhaps you will be satisfied with your child going to UGA and getting the HOPE. However, I have prepared to send my child to the best school that he might want to attend and look at soccer as another reason they may want him. What several UGA alums have recently told me ( and I agree) is that UGA has become difficult to get in, but is not really that great of a school. The highly competitive academic schools require something more than good grades.
