My son is a 2012 player and he is currently in the thick of finding the right school. He is getting lots of interest from some quality D3 teams and some interest from mid tier D1 and D2 schools.
I learned last night how important a visit can be. I was pleasantly surprised by how much a university could offer my son.
My son is undecided on a major but has indicated a interest in engineering. I think this interest might be because of the high goals of his fellow AP classmates. My husband and I have decided to go to an outside source that offers career counseling. In our son's case it will be important to know if the major is going to be engineering.
To add to finding the right school mix. I would say our son is a late bloomer not in size but his quality of play is still on the rise. So it seems we might be waiting until the spring time for his decision on a school.
I would like to hear about other families story on what it took to find the right school.
