My daughter looked at it like a job offer- some go where they are getting paid more! Coming out of college owing 100 grand is not smart for some girls. Top tier girls are being offered by these schools listed and choosing elsewhere. Don't rush to judge why some top girls are choosing wisely !

I'm pretty sure that Princeton, Penn, Duke, Northwestern, Hopkins, Notre Dame, Virginia etc... all have pretty good "Lacrosse Prestige" and that the majority of young women who graduate from those schools choose a career path other than Lacrosse. However, you seem a bit arrogant, do you feel there is something wrong with choosing a career involving something you love? Is teaching and coaching beneath you?

The top programs will make it very affordable for their top recruits. To each her own.
