    I paid less than room and board for about 2 and a half years, then my son got student loans to cover that himself.

    Sorry I should be more clear. Since we are talking about soccer let's use my 75% scholarship as stated above. If the athlete is a counter the combined scholarship of 50% athletic and 25% academic would count as a 75% scholarship towards the women,s soccer team allowance even though the athletic was only a 50% scholarship.

    That appears to be mostly about football and basketball players - "In the revenue sports of football and basketball, institutional aid is limited even further"

    The relevant page of the NCAA regulations is here - http://financialaid.arizona.edu/general/ncaa-manual-bylaw-15-financial-aid-excerpts

    Pasrents need to think beyond the scholarship when negotiating. We negotiated in-state tuition for my DD along with the academic and soccer scholarships. The in-state tuition saved us $11k a semester. Not all state schools can offer the in-state tuition waiver, but it is worth asking. We also negotiated that she did not have to go on the full freshman meal plan. She went on a points type of plan that is usually only used by juniors and seniors. Saved about $1000 a semester.

    You aren't doing anything else and you are the master googler why don't you tell me? Are you just an a$$hole or do you just not have anything better to do? You can Google this so why ask unless you are just an a$$hole?

    I know a$$hole do you? Yale has won more national championships that Alabama and Princeton is only 2 behind. Please don't ask me anything. You are a certified a$$hole with nothing but time on his hand asking questions that he can google the answer to for God knows what reason. Please add something to a conversation and don't ask me any questions. I used to have you blocked. Not sure why I changed that. Now I remember why I had you blocked.

    I suggest that you take your wife out to Rei do Gado, grab a 20mg cialis and some Playboys and work out some of your angst....

    My DD is a rider as well and she's done research with equestrian scholarships. She found out that you must have a horse that qualifies as well to be considered for a scholarship in most programs. That's a hefty expense . She knows of one program dropping a girl due to her horse being seriously injured. Buyer beware...

    Based on my DD's experience so far, the process has been very different than other committed players in her local circle. That difference was that once she committed, dialog with her contacts at school significantly increased to every few weeks. They were involved in her HS class selections, they often checked in on how her test are going, often check in to see how her semester grades were, sat/act test scores/results, etc. They went from recruiting/athletic staff & converted to onboarding academic admission councilors. This was different than the interaction other committed players she/we know have experienced. Based on my discussion with the coach, this has a lot to do with their academic index "AI" requirement (parents should look into this) and how she was doing (academically) as their first recruit, would affect how and who they could subsequently recruit for her incoming class. This is a process that I don't think other D1 programs have to navigate.

    I know if one Ivy who's getting their gear tomorrow and you might find it on social media....but instead of blinged out bags @ cool accessories like other schools, they're bling will be shiny new HP 12C's and an introduction to their sports physiologist that they have to meet with weekly so that they don't jump off the deep end.:eek:

    Ps- (Joking about the calculators, serious about the shrink) :)
