<p>I'm relatively new to the forum, have done a little reading during the past few weeks, but now I finally decided to sign up!
So I have a big decision ahead of me - where will I attend college?</p>
<p>I play basketball, have volunteered a lot, have a 4.2 GPA in school, and received a 30 on the ACT (still shooting for higher). In college, I hope to continue playing basketball at a school with a very good academic profile so I can continue towards my dream of becoming a doctor. While I love playing basketball, academics are first.</p>
<p>My question, since I hope to receive as much scholarship money as possible during undergrad (from basketball and academics), does anyone know of any schools that combine these two things? I understand that many of you might not be familiar with the athletic side of college, but D1 and D2 schools can give scholarships, while D3 schools cannot. </p>
<p>I would say that I'm a good basketball player (can probably play from small d1 range through d3). If anyone is interested in specific statistics, I will be happy to provide those.
Is it true that playing d1 sports and attempting pre-med is impossible?</p>
<p>And, most importantly, does anyone know of ANY schools that could suite me athletically (to play basketball) and academically (pre-med)?</p>
<p>Thank you very much.</p>
