The problem with Yappi, your kid obviously did not make the grade, so now you are a bitter person. Sad

Good point PC. Anybody have any idea about the challenges of playing D1 and maintaining a pre-med oriented schedule? I heard some advice from a wise parent who suggested a D2/3 or an academic oriented mid-major.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Hoosier - Some impressive young ladies at University of Dayton with 4 graduating Pre-Med. Probably much like taking any challenging major and combining college athletics, all about balance. My experience has been that most of these athletes are driven both on and off the soccer field. You can probably pick any college roster and find similar results.

Women's Soccer
Meghan Blank - Attending medical school at the Wright State Boonshoft School of Medicine.

Sarah Byrne - Taking a gap year before applying to Medical School. Will work as a medical scribe and/or phlebotomist in before med school.

Jenna DiTusa - Taking a gap year and working at a medical health and fitness center while applying to PA schools and grad schools for the following year. Plans eventually work as a PA or exercise physiologist.

Libby Leedom - Attending the University of Louisville School of Medicine.

Erin O'Malley - Has accepted a full-time position with Sapient Global Markets. Will be located in Washington, D.C. following a three-month training program in Bangalore, India.

I don't know why everyone argues about fees, but then still pay's them? The bottom line is if your kid is having a good experience and is getting better, the market bares what people are willing to spend on it. If you don't like it they can always play recreational, or for a bargain basement club. I think to play at a top club with top trainers who have invested so much of their time and money, it's going to cost something. There is a lot of overhead cost for these organizations.

This also shouldn't be the only way to get money to go to college. These kids should be working hard in the class room as well. I think the thing that gets missed a lot is that this can often help them land their spot at the D1 or D2 level just as much as their playing ability, especially if they want to parlay their playing career into a great education at a service academy, ivy league, ect.
