Re: 3 days

I believe the NEPSHL independents, Exeter for example, will go well beyond need to get a stud. But of course with a school like that the kid better be really bright in the class room. They ain't letting in any dummies or "marginal" kids. And also, to get great money you better be a varsity level kid in another sport.
Agreed, Exeter can be very generous with aid, and why not when you have an endowment of greater than $1 Billion dollars, and yes, that is with a "B". But you have to swing it in the classroom, Exeter doesn't let anyone in that is "marginal" academically. It's amazing that their hockey team is good year after year with all the turnover they have from each year.

What a week. I have received at least 20 calls from parents of 03 up to 00 where kids were accepted but no FA available and put on a waitlist. I have been doing this for a long time and don't remember a year like this.
The 03 group at least can play a year or 2 of U16 or go to a Catholic to prepare, but the older kids are at a loss, and they are good solid players.

Bodes well for High School and FS hockey though. God I wish we live in MN!!

Tough week for a lot of dreamers.

1. Sorry your oldest kid got cut from prep school
2. Sorry your bank account got cut from financial aid
3. Sorry your youngest will get cut from their club team
