Receiving a D2 Offer - What's Next?

Just got a D2 offer for athletics and I'm excited but also a bit lost. What should be my next steps? Should I expect a very different college experience from D1?

First off, congratulations on your D2 offer – that's an outstanding achievement! The next steps would involve having a detailed conversation with the coach about what the athletic commitment will look like, as well as understanding any academic support systems in place for student-athletes. It's also important to visit the campus if possible, to get a feel for the environment where you will spend the next few years.

While the athletic experience in D2 may not have the same level of intensity and time commitment as D1, it's still a significant part of your college life. Expect rigorous training schedules and travel for games, but generally, there's a greater balance between academics and athletics at the D2 level. It's still going to be a challenging and rewarding experience. Make sure to focus on your time management skills – they'll be crucial. Also, check on the financial package and understand your scholarship conditions. Lastly, don't forget to enjoy this moment and be proud of your hard work paying off!
