<p>i'm a sophomore in high school and i'm interested in playing college soccer. i'm not looking for schools like UNC or UVA where it's a pretty huge deal...i'm just looking for a college that's relatively good in academics and has a soccer team. </p>
<p>you see, this year i came to the realization that i can't live without soccer. i honestly can't see myself...at least in the near future...without it. i love everything about the game with a burning passion...but i've never been one to take it seriously until now. it was just something i did for fun. i truly regret that now because it's a little too late to make something out of myself. but i wanna keep playing for as long as i can, in whatever team that'll accept me. </p>
<p>so my questions for you all is:</p>
<li><p>do you think i'll have a chance in getting accepted to a team even though i've only played in a rec league all my life? (i will be trying out for my high school team in the spring. it's pretty competitive at my school, so chances are slim...but you never know...)</p></li>
<li><p>what's the college life like when you're playing on a team? is it hard balancing your school work? do you miss classes because of away games? or are the games like on the weekends or something? i'm really curious on how it works because academics is important to me. </p></li>
<li><p>what colleges would you recommend for me to go to? i'd also prefer to be in the east coast...</p></li>
<p>that's all...for now.
any other advice would be great as well!</p>
