Navigating the college process
Division 1 or Division 3?
For the most serious athletes.
Year round commitment: regular practices and training during the off season.
Scholarships available to the top recruits. (Not applicable to Ivy League schools as they do not offer scholarships).
For the less committed athlete (but no less serious or skillful).
In season commitment: regular practices and training in season only.
No scholarships available, making it possible for the athlete to participate in other sports.
*Division 2 schools offer a middle ground between D1 and D3. There are very limited scholarships available for athletics, but the required time commitment is often less that that of a D1 school.
