I was wondering if anybody could shed the light on how athletic recruitment works at WPI for team sports?
WPI does not offer Early Decision which a lot of schools/coaches use as a bargaining tool to get prospective athletes to commit to their institution. With Early Action, which is not really binding in any way, how do the kids know they they will have a roster spot come Fall semester Freshman year? How does the coach know if the kid is really coming to the school or not until May 1st decision day?
Does the coach just invite a bunch of kids he thinks might fit his team to apply and hope some of them pan out, and if he gets too many of those kids does he just hold a Fall try out of sorts?
Thanks for any info!
