    Tell us what you've looked at, what you levels you liked, what levels like you.

    Haven't you used a college search engine yet? We liked collegeboard.com

    I have been looking for Div II or Div III schools, as I´m too old to play Div I.
    I have played some ITF junior events when I was a junior and have also competed in some future events.
    I´m playing a lot of national tournaments, and I am also playing for a German club named Suchsdorfer SV, situated in Kiel in the Northern part of Germany.

    It´s not too important where in the US, but I would prefer a place in or near a big city.
    Until now I have been talking about California or Florida or near Chicago or Boston - in those areas.

    Emory, U of Chicago, Tufts are all top 25 D-III schools for tennis that are located in major cities that are also great for academics if you have the grades/scores to get in.

    I suggest you approach this problem from a different angle -- the opposite direction. Search for a college where you can play tennis, rather than maybe play tennis at a college.

    Use the college search engine through your post grad office or collegeboard.com or naviance, etc. Answer all the questions. When it comes to the sports, choose tennis, your state, surrounding states, some remote states that don't charge out of state tuition, sister states (jump overs), division II and division III. Depending how good you are, you can still consider Division I. In our state, there is a remote cow-town college that is division I. Few want to go to a cow town, so....

    Also, you should be attending the SHOWDOWNS this Fall. This is very, very important!!! These are typically held by schools that are looking for recruits or have a difficult time drawing recruits. Sometimes they just host them for their own player to compete. various reasons. Nonetheless you get a chance to see and be seen. It gives you a chance to compare yourself to others.

    I am a coach at Drew University. We are a D3 school about 40 minutes drive (or train) to NYC in Madison, NJ. We are both athletically and academically very challenging. We have won the conference championships 9 straight years without at loss in conference. Check us out at www.drew.edu

    LOTS of small schools close to big cities.

    Texas is littered with them, Georgia is as well. Great weather. Very competitive. Look into Florida and California also.
