25-35 percent maybe a little higher for lower D1 schools. Only 12.6 scholarships available
12.6 scholarships per team.
Split that up over 4 (now 5+ classes) and it leaves 2-3 scholarships per recruiting class.
Not a lot of money to go around. As the poster above said- dont worry about the money, use lax to get into a better school.
If that’s the case would you consider ACC schools education better than BIG10?
Depends on the school.
Here are the US News Rankings:
9: JHU (B1G)
12: Duke (ACC)
19: Notre Dame (ACC)
23: Michigan (B1G)
26: UVa (ACC)
28: UNC (ACC)
49: OSU (B1G)
58: Cuse (ACC)
59: MD (B1G)
63: PSU (B1G) - tie
63: Rutgers (B1G) - tie
US News are just an estimate of good schools...Like someone said above...depends on your major, personality, etc, etc, etc....and then some factors.. Frankly, I see to many lacrosse D1 players with communication majors..
The University Benchmarks has the conferences in this order academically for all sports, but there can be huge variability within the leagues:
1) Ivy League (Average) - No Athletic Scholarships
2) Atlantic Coast Conference (Average)
3) Big Ten Conference (Average)
4) Colonial Athletic Association (Average)
5) Patriot League (Average)
6) NESCAC - New England Small College Ath Conf (Average) - D3
7) Liberty - Upstate Collegiate Athletic Association (Average) - D3
8) Centennial Conference (Average) - D3
9) America East (Average)
10) Big East Conference (Average)
11) Sun Belt Conference (Average)
These are the hardest schools to get into and the highest rated academically that have D1 or D3 lacrosse teams.
All of these schools have huge endowments and will make it affordable for your kids to attend based on your income and assets. (If the schools don't help at all, you may have to sell your 3rd summer home and just settle for the beach and mountain houses).
The service academies pay your kids to attend, but they must serve their country for a few years after graduation.
