This is where NBA teams get excited because they’ve been watching them excel on the collegiate level which is tough because mostly everyones goal is to take that next step into the NBA which is another concern Stern had was players coming out of high school and turning out to be a bust in the pros like Robert Swift. It’s a huge transition from High School basketball and Professional Basketball. Analysts and reporters often questioned Stern about this being a move to make the NCAA stronger and more competitive, he denied this and states “this was simply it a business decision for the N.B.A (Why Stern Does Not Want High
Owners want the players to only be able to sign for 3 years if they are signing with new teams. The current system allows the players to sign for 5 years. The reason for this is certainly understandable. If a player signs for 5 years and blows his knee out and misses 2 years out of the 5, the owners are still stuck paying that salary to the player and are getting nothing in return. These kind of things happen and can cripple a team for years leaving the owners unable to sign new players because they have millions tied up in an injured player.
People are planning to attend university where they are suppose hold the grade point average of a 4.0 or higher. They had to work very bad throughout their high school careers to get into this University but, there is only one spot open for the next semester. The other students applying for the spot is a Latino man (a minority) who hold a grade point average of a 2.0 which is a C average.

Well, not me; if there is a will, there is a way and the reason I left my son and made the choice to play football for Wayne State is to get an education and also make it to the pro‘s. In the movie Pursuit of Happyness, Chris Gardner is a marginally employed salesman and a single father, struggling with the mother of his five year old son Jayden Smith.
For the majority of college athletes their athletic career ends after college, yet we’re giving them money to play that sport. We are putting in these kids heads these hopes and dreams of going on after college and becoming a professional athlete when in reality the likelihood of that is very slim. So why then are we putting so much money into college athletics? If anything we should be giving out more academic scholarships for athletes like at D3 schools where your given money based on your academic success not how well you play a sport. Their potential for success can go on past their college years with academic scholarships so why are we giving out athletic scholarships when the majority of the time you reach your highest potential after 4 years.
A scholarship can be a major financial package, and plenty of your average college students would be more than happy to take the tuition and actually pursue their studies” (Pheifer, 2012).

I began taking GED subject tests at Green River Community College to speed up my process of attending college. I finally got my GED this summer and I have been applying to colleges ever since.I got back to practicing on my trumpet and also brushing up on my reading and math skills.I want to play in a band again and be able to teach music and also incorporate physical therapy into all this.
Just think about all that hard work you have done throughout the last three years; taking test, completing projects, and preparing yourself for college. Many colleges require a list of all the classes you took your senior year, even the levels of those courses. By looking at this list they will determine what kind of students you are and if you decided to slack off. Senior year is just another year to strengthen your knowledge and learning skills, to prepare for all the challenges ahead. A successful senior year can lead you to a better path to a successful future.
