I may not be the best person to answer this but ideally you want an offer that is percentage based and not a dollar amount. With percentage base if tuition rises so does the scholarship amount. I would think that the second question is something that you would need clarification for from the coach. For instance let’s say your DD gets an offer for 50% you would need to clarify 50% of what? Is it total cost of attendance room & board, meal plan, books & tuition? Is it 50% of tuition cost only etc.... You get the point. I would think the coach would state everything the offer covers but I am sure that some coaches have turned this around come signing day, stating I never said everything the offer actually covered. Anyway I am sure more qualified individuals will answer your questions and welcome to the forum!!I have a 2021 dd. We are putting together a list of schools she would like to attend. Can someone tell me how scholarships are divided and sliced? For instance, is it usually a percentage of is it a dollar amount? If percentages, is it for the COA?
No, no, no and no. Academics still come first at D1 and D2. Plenty of D1 and D2 coaches have high expectations both on and off the field. Another fallacy is softball coaches not allowing certain majors. If it’s happening at all, it’s not widespreadRemember, Grades, grades, grades. If you want the most money from a school, grades first, softball second. NAIAs are giving money out big time. IF your dd makes a D1 or D2 know that they will want softball first, school second. Just something to think about. Right now you have time. Get a video done for your dd and send it out. Then go to camps too.
maybe I'm just hearing rumors then....No, no, no and no. Academics still come first at D1 and D2. Plenty of D1 and D2 coaches have high expectations both on and off the field. Another fallacy is softball coaches not allowing certain majors. If it’s happening at all, it’s not widespread
