Interesting that you say that you want your daughter to go to the best academic school yet you seem to prioritize lacrosse when talking about The Whole package…. Top 5 lacrosse but Top 10 academic… ;-)
There is only one school that meets that criteria. It's Northwestern. But they're not interested in my daughter. So I would now lean towards more of a strong academic vs lacrosse. I also am not interested in traveling lacrosse the country to watch games, although we had interest there. Some other good options for us. It's all about priorities and options. Good luck!
