Ehh I have to say talent plays a major roll in how a team does. If you have a good number of D1 and top D3 commits on a team it means there is talent. I dont care how good coaching is if you dont have talent you dont win games. I know there have been a few teams with a tremendous amount of talent but have been unsuccessful. Thats a poor mix of selfish players, parents who dont have a clue and push an all me type of game, and a coach who cant coach.




As per the reference to D1 and D3. D1 and D3 are historically the better programs. D2 does not have many strong teams and also not a long history in the game. The upper tier D3 teams can beat many of the lower tier D1 teams and give some of the upper tier teams a battle


It's just "Per. . . ", not "As per . . . " . . . you're not citing or referencing a document, policy, or some other formal thing! smh


Grammar police. Lol.

To the person who asked about the academic rankings, I got them from Forbes. To the individual who just name calls and tries to be a bully. My point and the information I posted was a list of the top 10 D2 schools and their rank academically. It was to reference how the D2 programs are not only weak in lacrosse but academically also. It just didn't show properly due to the width of post being limited.

I have been seeing some banter back and forth regarding DI, DII, and DIII. There is a school for everyone. Its whatever fits the student and their family. The fact that Long Island has so many kids playing at the next level is amazing. We should be proud of all our players regardless of what ones opinion is of the school. To be a collegiate athlete is a great accomplishment. Not many players get to play at the next level.

The NCAA allows each Division I lacrosse program 12.6 scholarships.That scholarship money is split up among as many as 40 players and in some cases upwards of 50. In Division II, there are 10.8 scholarships and the same division of funds applies to DII as D1. Not all teams are fully funded so they do not have as many scholarships as fully funded teams. Division III does not offer scholarships. NJCAA offers 20 scholarships. All schools offer academic money and financial aid. The amount of money you receive is based on your grades and financial situation.There are approximately 609 sponsored men's college lacrosse programs across the NCAA in Divisions I, II, III, NJCAA, and collegiate club.

Number of US High School Lacrosse Players 2016-17 111,842
Number of College Lacrosse Players across all programs 15,257
% of US High School Lacrosse Players competing at any College Level 13.2%
% of US High School Lacrosse Players Competing at NCAA I Schools 2.7%

Here is a breakdown of the top 50 academic schools as per Forbes and the division their lacrosse team plays in. The level of play varies from school to school and division. The point I am making here is there is a place for everyone. There are 17 DI and 12 DIII teams on this list. Playing DII is also an accomplishment. They may not be on the list of top academic schools but they have some strong programs.

#1 Harvard University D1
#3 Yale University D1

Good research. Interesting that you used Forbes considering its skewed towards business careers:

"The Forbes list gives schools points for things that might appeal to future B-schoolers and Wall Street moguls. Ratings are based on the number of alumni who end up in Who’s Who in America, the amount of students and professors receiving awards"

I tried to provide an overview of lacrosse in college with actual data that has relevance to high school lacrosse players. I used what I thought to be the best resources I could find. Forbes tends to be one of the most used and quoted college ranking services.

geez....what a loser..are you able to carry on a conversation?? how about....biology, physicians Asst, physical therapy, Medicine, nursing, mathematics, physics, engineering, English, chemistry etc. Keep in mind college rankings are typically based on the Major/minor/degree that many schools specialize in and can be ranked differently for different areas of study within a college. There are a number of ranking associations.

To be a collegiate athlete is a great accomplishment. Not many players get to play at the next level.

The NCAA allows each Division I lacrosse program 12.6 scholarships.That scholarship money is split up among as many as 40 players and in some cases upwards of 50. In Division II, there are 10.8 scholarships and the same division of funds applies to DII as D1. Not all teams are fully funded so they do not have as many scholarships as fully funded teams. Division III does not offer scholarships. NJCAA offers 20 scholarships. All schools offer academic money and financial aid. The amount of money you receive is based on your grades and financial situation.There are approximately 609 sponsored men's college lacrosse programs across the NCAA in Divisions I, II, III, NJCAA, and collegiate club.

Number of US High School Lacrosse Players 2016-17 111,842
Number of College Lacrosse Players across all programs 15,257
% of US High School Lacrosse Players competing at any College Level 13.2%
% of US High School Lacrosse Players Competing at NCAA I Schools 2.7%

Here is a breakdown of the top 50 academic schools as per Forbes and the division their lacrosse team plays in. The level of play varies from school to school and division. The point I am making here is there is a place for everyone. There are 17 DI and 12 DIII teams on this list. Playing DII is also an accomplishment. They may not be on the list of top academic schools but they have some strong programs.

#1 Harvard University D1
#3 Yale University D1
#4 Princeton University D1
#5 Massachusetts Institute of Technology D3
#7 University of Pennsylvania D1
#8 Duke University D1
#9 Brown University D1
#12 Dartmouth College D1
#13 Williams College D3
#15 Cornell University D1
#17 Amherst College D3
#19 Swarthmore College D3
#20 United States Naval Academy D1
#21 Georgetown University D1
#23 Bowdoin College D3
#24 United States Military Academy D1
#25 Haverford College D3
#26 University of Notre Dame D1
#30 Johns Hopkins University D1
#31 Washington and Lee University D3
#32 Tufts University D3
#33 Wesleyan University D3
#35 Bates College D3
#38 University of Michigan D1
#39 Middlebury College D3
#40 University of Virginia D1
#41 United States Air Force Academy D1
#42 Colgate University D1
#50 Vassar College D3




Good research. Interesting that you used Forbes considering its skewed towards business careers:

"The Forbes list gives schools points for things that might appeal to future B-schoolers and Wall Street moguls. Ratings are based on the number of alumni who end up in Who’s Who in America, the amount of students and professors receiving awards"

... as opposed to schools that crank out majors in "Women's Studies"??!



geez....what a loser..are you able to carry on a conversation?? how about....biology, physicians Asst, physical therapy, Medicine, nursing, mathematics, physics, engineering, English, chemistry etc. Keep in mind college rankings are typically based on the Major/minor/degree that many schools specialize in and can be ranked differently for different areas of study within a college. There are a number of ranking associations.


I don't know , but the schools on the Forbes list seem to have all the majors you mention. Can't we just be happy with a well thought out and well written post. This has to be one of the best posts I have read in a long time. Sorry he didn't pick a site for the rankings you approve of

Anyone see the USA game other day ? There was more people at a HS girls basketball game than that lacrosse game. What a embarrassment to the game with every big player and coach there. How are the crowds at College Games ??

Friends and family . . .

I was fortunate one year to be in Raleigh the day when Duke played NC on a Saturday, late morning/mid-day, and beyond friends and family, there were no other fans there . . .
