102 – So, you think you’re sending your kid to college on a sports scholarship? Think again!

In this episode KT discusses:

• Parents under the sports scholarship illusion
• Odds of landing a “free-ride” scholarship
• Non-traditional sports scholarships for Women

Key Takeaways:

• Think of sports scholarships as a “nice subsidy”
• Sports and studying are both full-time jobs for your student
• Help your child find scholarships, you wouldn’t promote your 16-year-old to CFO

Quote: “The idea of a free ride academically for one of these other (not football or basketball) collegiate sports is a fantasy.” – KT
