College Recruiting

The Five Most Important Areas Of Consideration


Gary Kinkead

The Five Most Important Areas of Consideration:

I. Academics
Does this school have the academic curriculum that you are interested in?

II. Athletics
Is this the appropriate level for your abilities? Would you be happy with this team?

III. Geographic Location
Can you spend four years of your life here? Would you choose this school if you were not swimming?

IV. Finances
Can you afford this school? This area? Will you receive academic or athletic aid? Is this school financially secure enough to continue its current level of commitment to swimming?

V. Institution Size
Are you going to be comfortable in a big school or would you prefer a smaller school?
