WHY READ THIS GUIDE? Because Lacrosse Can Help You Get Into A Great School

According to a study by former Princeton president William Bowen (published in the New York Times) that analyzed admissions data at Harvard, Middlebury, Virginia and other top schools:

A recruited athlete was 30% more likely to be admitted than a non-athlete.

For comparison, an African American, Native American or Latino was 28% more likely to be admitted than a Caucasion or Asian and a legacy was 20% more likely to be admitted than an applicant of a parent that did not attend that college.

The Supply and Demand of Lacrosse Recruiting

Lacrosse recruiting is essentially supply and demand. In this case, the demand or number of talented, high school recruits is growing much faster than the supply or number of available roster spots on college teams.

In 2006, there were 40 high school players competing for every Division I Men's roster spot. In 2015, there were 56 players competing for the same spot. Women's lacrosse has seen competition increase from 31 to 41 over the same period.
