    yeah..i think its a good idea. it gets your name out a little to coaches. ive entered to allegheny, case western, carnegie melon, and wesleyan west virginia. im from northwestern pa so im obviously trying to stay somewhat in the area

    Do you think these applications are more useful than just e-mailing the coach....or is it better to do both?

    Thanks

    Yes and it does work, I've had a coach call me non-stop after I filled out one of those.

    Yup, I have, but I haven't really heard back from them (but I'm 99% sure I'm not going there anyway...).
