My D is planning to swim in college. She has just started to seriously research different D1 and D3 programs. If any of you have a S or D that swims or is in the research process too - What can you tell me about the following teams - coaches, work ethic of the team, practice schedule, camradarie, if men and women teams practice together, winter training, and anything else that may be of interest. Stuff that you really can't get a feel for by researching their websites. She will start some unofficial visits in the spring and hopefully, official ones after July 1. The schools currently on her short list to explore more thoroughly are Washington Univ in St. Louis, Davidson, Georgetown, Dartmouth, Hamilton, Williams, Trinity (San Antonio) Middlebury and Washington and Lee. Thanks for sharing your insights.
