College Anyone?

I am a junior in high school, and after going to the local Career and College Fair, I have come to realize that I know close to nothing about college. What did YOU major in College? I am looking towards Ag Science or something similar like Animal Science, and the Community College I am looking towards has the top equestrian/rodeo team in the Midwest, which I would LOVE to tryout for...Until someone I know told me that since I am slightly larger (more stocky than anything) and I'm a guy that there is a chance that they won't except me for being larger...I'm not so much fat, as stocky...6 ft 200 lbs...Anyone have any information on this? Thank you!

You don't look that big (from your picture under your name) or sound that big. I doubt they would give you a problem, you sound about average. But that being said, I don't have a clue about college teams.

The only way to really know is to go in and talk to them if you can. Ask questions to let them know you are interested (for example there might be a try out, so you can ask about any requirements to join the team). You did say they were the top equestrian/rodeo team in the Midwest so perhaps they can choose to be picky and just select the best of the best. What is your riding level?

PS. forgot to add, they should have a website somewhere and it might detail requirements of level, size, experience etc. And it also might tell you the process in which to join the team.
