? I think the point was the kid made a decision to get an education rather than play some backwater D-3 hockey and you call that "real hockey"????
Guy posted Assumption played against BU's club team, is this common? Is BU's club team any good as far as club teams go?
6-2, at least they scored a couple!
And if my kid told me he would rather play d-III hockey and go to Framingham State, UMass Dartmouth, Salem State, USNH ....rather than one of the better schools in the country and play club, I'd get his head examined.
I'm curious, for those bashing the higher level ISL schools as a waste of money, have you done any research? If you haven't, try Google and you will find that through a combination of factors, the elite private schools are well worth the financial commitment if a family can afford it, and Nobles is certainly classified as an elite school. On average, the top 20 prep schools in the US send 30% of their graduates to Ivies, MIT, or Stanford, how does that compare you your local HS. If your sole focus for your son is hockey, there are certainly other, cheaper & better routes available but if it's about where he is going to be professionally at 35, Nobles, Phillips, Groton, etc will provide your child a head start that could last a lifetime.
I think you're looking for the College Education DBoard.
"If your sole focus for your son is hockey, there are certainly other, cheaper & better routes" was the whole point of the discussion I thought.
Like the O.K. student (Brockton) with O.K. test scores ("near 2200") who got into 7 out of the 8 Ivies he applied to because he is a child of Nigerian immigrants.
Somewhere Elizabeth Warren is smiling and somewhere some white suburban 4.0, 2400 kid is wondering what went wrong.
Make Nigeria Great Again!
