I work for an IT company of about 2000 people. There are 10 people here that played D1 tennis from the Big 10, Pac-12, ACC, etc... Not a single one of them majored in either pre-med, Engineering or Computer Sciences in college. Their majors were: Economics, physiology, Sports management, International relations; I've asked each of them why they didn't major in pre-med or engineering and all of their responses were "I simply did not have time to do that. I had to practice tennis at least 4 hours every day and we played against other Universities in the conference on weekends. It was like having two full-time jobs. It is almost impossible to major in Engineering or Pre-med." I am sure there are D1 tennis athletes that go on to become engineers and doctors but those are very few. Their advice to me if your kid want to major in premed or engineering, either go to a D3 school or just play tennis for fun. These 10 people are now doing project management work for the company and they make 50% less than our engineers and software developers. anyone care to comment?
