<p>a girl at my school (this is not a joke) was recruited for track this year by over 15 schools. some of them were standford, ucla, duke, virginia, virginia tech, and one ivy i think. she turned them all down for the university of tennessee. what a dumbass! lol. she had full ride offers from all of them too! she has the US record for fastest mile time of any girl under the age of 18... ohh around 4:45. she almost went to the olympic trials before her senior year of high school (.02 seconds from qualifying)</p>
<p>you say athletes in college have no life because of the sport/academics, but think about it. If thier that good to get into an ivy based on just athletics, athletics probably IS thier life.</p>
<p>I want to play lacrosse for in college, but im thinking about it.
College isnt the last step in life, contrary to popular belief.
If your grades stink, what are you going to put on your job application? "Played lacrosse in college"??!</p>
