The One Thing People Don’t Tell You About College

It’s pretty safe to say that the vast majority of students, athletes, families and anyone outside of the US are somewhat unfamiliar with the US system. Obviously, everyone knows it exists that’s now what we mean. But unfamiliar with how it works, how scholarship is given, who receives scholarships, how your academics tie in, everything that makes the system what it is.

Of course, there are people that have been through the system, have had children go through the system, have friends that have been through the system etc. They may understand different things but when they share information with others its always based on personal experience and what they hear from others.

This is challenging for us to combat, things that are altered through the grapevine. “well I heard this, I heard that, this person told me this” And look it is impossible to have everyone completely educated on the US system. We have been doing this for 13 years and we still learn new things every day. However, one of the biggest pieces of advice we can give anyone out there is to always get a second opinion. Literally about anything that you hear from anyone relating to the US system. We aren’t saying the information isn’t correct, but its best to confirm with professionals in the industry.

Parents are always talking about their kids. If their child is in the US, I guess the only way we know how to describe it to people is by saying “Jonny is in the US doing the soccer scholarship thing, or the basketball scholarship thing” Or “Jonny is in the US on a basketball scholarship” and look you are right. I guess that is the only way people know how to describe it here and in other parts of the world. No matter what that student athlete may be doing or receiving, it is almost always referred to as ‘the scholarship thing’ or something along those lines.
