Is it bad if I am only considering colleges that have my sport in division 1?
I love my sport and it is a huge stress reliever for me, causing me to only consider schools with great teams. Usually people make sure their major has a great program at the school and THEN sports/hobbies, but I am doing it backwards. Is that okay as long as my college has my major too? #sport #psychologymajor #school #priorities #applying
I would make sure you are also looking at colleges academically too. What if you get injured and your major is what you will fall back on. Sports are great to follow because that seems to be your desire and dream but you have to look at your future. I would make sure your school fits you academically and physically. Make sure your professors fit your needs academically because you will need good grades to stay on a sports team. Also, talk to coaches and your advisor to see if they have good academic programs for athletes because playing a sport in college can be draining but you will need to keep your grades up. When visiting colleges ask the coaches how their players choose that school and how they juggle sports and schoolwork.
