Reasonable statement. Both should be considered Top 15 best Programs. Talent alone will not win a championship, a team needs outstanding coaching in order to win.

I think most of the animosity directed at these programs is from jealous parents of players who did not receive as much hype as some of the top recruits at Notre Dame and Florida. From what I have seen these schools primarily lose to Top 10 - 20 caliber Programs. They lose to the other programs that bring in highly ranked (top 40) recruits.

Hi - does anyone have experience with transferring to another D1 school or any tips or advice for a player who feels school is not a good fit.

Tip #1: don’t ask for advice on BOTC.

That is a broad question.

What year is your daughter?

Did your daughter sign a National Letter of Intent?

Is your daughter currently receiving an "athletic grant-in-aid / athletic scholarship"?

Is your daughter currently enrolled in the spring semester?

Is your daughter currently on the roster?

Does your daughter plan on finishing out the season, semester on her current team?


Other coaches can not talk to your daughter until she is officially in the "Transfer Portal". If your daughter is currently receiving athletic $$ she will need to ask her current institution for a "release". I believe that if the school does not approve a release the student athlete must sit out 1 year of competition.

Your daughter must request to be put in the Transfer Portal by her current institution. Your daughter can talk to her coach or go directly to the compliance department at her current school and ask to be placed in the Portal.

All NCAA affiliated institutions have access to the Transfer Portal and they can see the names of all of the student athletes who are looking to transfer.

Keep in mind that if your daughter asks to be put in the Portal there is a good chance that the current coach will dismiss her from the team.

Does your daughter have another school in mind? Was your daughter previously recruited by those schools?

If your daughter has particular schools in mind then ask your daughters Club or HS Coach reach out to the coaches at those schools and see if there is any interest.

anybody send their daughter to Northwestern and care to share how much tuition assistance was received? either athletic, academic or economic..
what is a typical offer for an incoming freshman.
annual tuition is about $75K.. ( I can't swing it without help )


obviously keep it as anonymous as possible no name, no hints.. unless of course you wanna share, then fire away.

Go to the NU website and plug in your financial info into their "Financial Aid Calculator". The Ivy's, Northwestern, Duke, ND, Stanford etc... All have extremely generous "Need Based Aid". Unlikely that your child will receive any "Academic / Merit" Aid at NU. The top recruits can be significant Athletic $$. You can not combine Athletic and Need based aid.

In our experience the financial aid calculators at places like Northwestern are pretty accurate.

Absolutely correct. The Financial Aid calculator at Ivy's Duke, NW, Hopkins and Stanford are all very accurate. Other schools not so much. In many cases you can receive more money in need based aid than they will offer athletically. Even if you have high income. Even if you make over 200k you can still get about 70% in need based aid. The hard part is getting into those schools. Lacrosse helps with that part. They will make sure you can afford it and do what works best.

So how does that work if you take need based aid over athletic ? Does your status as a recruited athlete change ? What if you have already signed NLI ? Is there any downside to choosing need based vs athletic ?
