  • What does she want to do in sports after college? Is she just looking for sports scholarships so she can attend college? Or is she trying to make a career in her chosen sport? She might get more personal recognition at a small school. But her team might get more recognition at a larger school and there will be alot more competition for fewer spots. Quite a decision. Figure out which school has offers other classes/activities she is looking for.

  • That's a tough one. I would probably go with big fish in a little pond and get some recognition for that school. Congrats to your daughter!

  • Def look at all the options. I went to a really small HS and loved going to a big college. I liked all of the options that came with it and meeting all different types of people. I would let this be her decision though and just help her weigh the pros and cons
