April 2, 2010, Newsletter Issue #187: Big Fish in a Little Pond

Tip of the Week

When applying for athletic scholarships, be wary of the Big Fish in a Little Pond syndrome. Just because you (or your child) is the best player on his or her team, does not automatically guarantee a full scholarship to a leading top division school.

When handing out scholarships, school athletic directors look at the students academics, the competition faced in high school, as well as the maturity level of the student. Some very good high school athletes are not pursued by top division schools because the student lacked the complete make-up needed to play in a top division. Be realistic about your (or your child's) ability and apply accordingly.
