For parents who look upon college scholarships as a return on investment, there is a better chance that it turns out positive for girls than boys.
Pretty easy for each family to do their own math.
For Ivies and D3 the return is zero for both boys and girls. (To the extent that tennis gets a kid into a school that has an academic level the kid wouldn't have otherwise qualified for, there is a whole other set of calculations I guess).
If instate tuition/room/board is $10,000 per year, and a boy gets .5.7, that's $20,000$28,000. Make that the numerator, with the total junior tennis expenses as the denominator. Anything over 1 represents a positive return, anything less than 1 is a negative return.
If outofstate tuition/private school tuitionrb is $40,000 per year............well anyone can do the math.
