How can a student (or parent) bridge the gap between their dream of a college experience and finding the university program that fits best with their rowing and academic goals?

In this episode, our expert panelists from the Rowers Reach consulting grup explain the recruiting process, explore the options at club, DI, DII and DIII programs, and talk about realistic goals and expectations.

Nobody can guarantee admission, but the high school athlete can learn how to put their best foot forward, formulate a plan, and find a school that fits academically and athletically.
