My son who was a solid player at UWW never received a dollar from Whitewater......five years out of state tuition (red shirt freshman year).....he chose UWW because of the facilities and coaches....went to the Stagg Bowl 2005 and 06....This year an excellent wide receiver from his high school and a good kid attempted to enroll but the financial package didn't come close so he is at a junior college.....for those young men who don't have the $$$ out of state tuition costs can be a hurdle that is impossible to make.....
It seems funny that your son did not receive even $1. It sounds like he was a very good player. Do you own a bank?
Given your son's apparent ability, you should have been more assertive with the financial aid office!
Conversely, I can readily understand picking a school for facilities and great coaching.
As for those young men "who don't have the $$$ for out of state tuition costs that can be a hurdle that is impossible to make…..,"
it appears you are, in this instance, talking about a kid who wound up at a JUCO as opposed to a four year school. If so, are you not comparing apples to oranges, especially in light of the fact that you would expect tuition at a JUCO to be less that that of a four year school? One
of the primary reasons kids end up at JUCOs is lower costs.
