This question is directed to those with athletic experience at the college level. We are wondering how hard it is to balance the schoolwork with your sport and also having a decent social life. Please let us know your experiences, and what sport you played and what level (D-1, 2, 3), top/mid/lower ranked team, etc. Football and basketball have a reputation for being all-encompassing and schoolwork suffers (much less spending time with friends and developing a good social network.) But that's only a perception, and it's only football and basketball.
Please share your experiences...we'd appreciate it a lot!
