The problem is that many of the great Engineering schools that are a good academic fit are strong baseball programs as well.
How realistic is it to be an Engineering major and a D1 baseball player? I am just throwing it out there because one of my son's teammates was told directly by a school (D3) they prefer not to recruit engineering majors due to the workload..... Just relaying what I heard.
Most HC's dislike any curriculum which requires "labs" late in the week. It's very difficult to be an athlete, let alone a D1 athlete with its aggressive schedule and pursue a technical degree. Even with top D3 HA's it's difficult. Caltech and MIT are the exceptions, because athletics revolve around technical programs. The Cornell HC told our club program head the past season he was trying to avoid recruiting too many players with engineering aspirations.
