Yale actually got some very strong commits in the 2022 class. The 2023 commits won’t be starting on day 1. Especially with the extra year. The 2022’s were told after the fact to take a gap semester since the backup of players are already so long.

Last year a few yellow jackets also went to Yale on first day. Good for them.

The strong 23s are getting recruited. Let’s not make excuses.

Yale can hardly catch and throw. Amazing school, but a lacrosse wasteland. One or two strong commits do not make a program. If they get top 2023 they would start, and vastly improve the program. In fact the better 2023 club teams would beat the current Yale roster.

If you go Ivy, It's Princeton, then Penn. Otherwise it's not competitive lacrosse. I get that many could care less about the lax, and are just lax just to get into the school, but it's not fun loosing most games. Yale is very weak and any top 2023 would absolutely start! But it is Yale and that is a win in itself!

Look at the commitments over the last 4-5 years, you will see a trend of more and more kids choosing Yale, Harvard, UPenn, Princeton, Stanford, Brown, etc…. People starting to recognize the rest of these kids lives is much more important than the 4 years they spend playing lacrosse!

Stop trying to diminish it as though Yale could be greatly improved. The girl got into yale, one of the top schools in the world, she’ll be set for life, and she’ll be able to play lacrosse too, that’s amazing, good for her! Best of luck. Parents need to stop worrying about the lacrosse team, and start realizing the academics, that’s all that really matters. No one cares if you win a national championship, however every job you apply for Will care if you graduated from Yale. This site is so toxic and ridiculous…

Right on!!!! If any of their kids had a chance to go to YALE, they would jump on that. If not, they would be dense! Hmmm 🤔 That’s amazing and good luck to the commit. Lacrosse is not getting you a great job, it gets you opportunity to maybe get into a school like YALE, that maybe you may have not gotten into otherwise.

Mostly agree, but you can actually have all of that and a good lacrosse team if you choose Penn, Princeton or Stanford (too far) or NW (far, but a real shot at a championship). The other schools that have chances at championships are definitely not even close academically. It’s a shame that Yale, Harvard and Columbia can’t get their lax teams straightened out!

The Yale commit was “set for life” day 1. Any speculation on the amount of the endowment her parents made as “insurance”.

Clearly there is jealousy in these posts…a 23 got into Yale, that’s awesome! How about not trying to stomp on it to make yourself feel better. People are way too focused on the lax aspect of it & going to the “best” lax school.

The other schools that have chances at championships are definitely not even close academically. It’s a shame that Yale, Harvard and Columbia can’t get their lax teams straightened out!

“If you choose Penn, Princeton or Stanford or Northwestern “ …. Pretty sure those programs have to choose the player. Relatively very few players receive offers from the schools that you mentioned, it’s not as simple as “choosing “ …. The school has to offer you a spot.

As far as Yale, Harvard and Columbia getting their lax teams “straightened out” it will not happen anytime soon. There is not enough talent to go around, that is why we see the same 10 - 15 teams always at the top. It’s not just the three schools that you mentioned, a lot of very good schools have a hard time bringing in top tier talent.

Congratulations to the young woman and her parents and best of luck to all who are going through the process. Be thankful for all of the opportunities that this sport provides.

Who is jealous? And remember she did not “get in” she committed to the process. Other posters only suggested that there are other schools that are better or the same academically that have better lacrosse programs. As of now. Things do and will change, but historically Yale does not have a strong lacrosse program, and this girl, assuming she gets in, would start and could also attract other high end recruits. Good for her and Yale!

Were you borne yesterday? Do you really think that kids and parents have only started to realize the benefits of attending one of those schools over the last 4 or 5 years? There are no more kids going to those schools now than there were in the past.

By the way, the schools that you listed are not for everyone, not every student athlete has the grades to get into those schools.
