Do Your College Homework

When selecting a school, research the percentage of graduating athletes at the school. Pay attention to the reputations of both the athletic department and the coach. Talk to other student-athletes and parents if necessary. Some concerns to think about:
1.) Do a high percentage of players fail to receive diplomas?

2.) Is this school currently (or has it ever) been under investigation for possible violations of NCAA rules?

3.) What if the pressure to win conflicts with educational demands?

4.) If a class conflicts with the student-athletes practice schedule, can the athlete still take the class? Is the school going to honor academics first? Or is the policy that student-athletes put their game first and alter their academic schedule accordingly?
