I do not understand the obsession with scholarships. We made academics our #1 priority. Our kids worked very hard in school and were good tennis players. The top D3 academic colleges wanted them, along with a few mid major D1's. If you qualify academically and athletically the top D3 schools offer generous need based financial aid. In our case about 50%. The other 50% was a little tough but it wasn't that much more than we had been paying for lessons, training, equipment and tournaments. It was the best investment we could ever make. The key is the academics.
They have to be near the top of the class.
