As a college admissions advisor, Larry works with students from all over the country as well as the world. This week he responds to a question from a student athlete who lives in the UK and has aspirations to play tennis at a university in the United States.
Q: Harvard, Stanford, MIT and Caltech. I play tennis at a very high level and I am very good at rounders. Is there any way for me to get a sports scholarship or get an admission through sports or do I need to apply like everyone else?
A: MIT is Division I in Crew, only. All other sports at MIT are Division III, and Division III colleges (MIT and Caltech) cannot offer athletic scholarships. Ivy League colleges (Harvard) do not offer athletic scholarships. So that leaves only Stanford. “Very high level” is an obscure description for a tennis scholarship at Stanford. Are you one of the best in your age group in all of UK? If so, write to the tennis coach at Stanford.
