I participated in a D3 sport freshman year (lightly recruited out of HS as part of a state champion 4 man relay team). However, I really struggled to achieve a 3.5 in my specialized engineering studies. I decided to drop the team to focus on my studies and develop other interests outside of year round training. The decision was a sound one as I achieved a 3.9 Soph year and was elected VP of a 34 person club. Should I include my sports involvement as an EC or does it point to a weakness, that I struggled to earn good grades while training 3-4 hours a day? Thanks!
