I know on the women's side that if you want to play at a school like Stanford or UCLA you better be good and accomplished in your tennis career. However, if you want to play at a school like Georgetown, for example, you don't have to be anywheres near as good as you would have to be for some other schools. Their tennis program isn't as strong. It's the same on the men's side as there are many D1 schools out there and if you REALLY want to play D1 you could probably find a school that's right for you. It would help you greatly though to have at least some kind of ranking, at least a Sectional ranking.

I am not saying that you don't have to be good to play D1, you have be at least decent...but there can be huge differences between the levels of play at various D1 schools.

Very good post, thanks
