One of the high school lacrosse players I work with gave her verbal commitment to Harvard last month. As you can imagine, it was a huge accomplishment for her. Her parents and friends are so excited. All of our hard work has paid off!
So how did she get to this point? She did a number of things extremely well.
First, she was dedicated. She worked hard even though she was always busy with school, sports, and life. She was proactive and took initiative when it came to staying in touch with coaches. She never let a lead die which allowed her to gradually build relationships with coaches.
Second, she was always focused on finding the right fit academically and athletically. She continually reevaluated her top 5 schools based on the major she wants to pursue, the lacrosse program, the school’s reputation, location, and team dynamics.Lastly, she made smart decisions. She worked hard in school and on the field. School remained her number one priority and because of that, she was able to leverage herself as both a great student and excellent lacrosse player (which coaches love!).
Thanks to all of the hard work she put in this year, she will not have to stress about college admissions next fall and will be able to enjoy her senior year. More importantly though, she will get an amazing college education and make an excellent member of the Crimson Women’s Lacrosse team!
