Ivy Recruiting Your Athletic Advantage

Player Notes

Princeton Track


Thanks. And thank you for all your help, it's been worth a lot to my family and me. I really enjoyed the trip and thought the visits went very well. The schools we looked at were pretty awesome so even if everything works out right, it's going to be a tough decision. I know it's not over yet but I can't thank you enough for all your help thus far.


Tufts Baseball


I just received my letter of acceptance to Tufts. I am very excited about going there next year. I wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me. You have been a tremendous help to me and my family in learning about the recruiting process and the possibilities that are out there. We are very grateful for all of your help and support. Thank you again from Rod, my mom, and I.

I don't feel sometimes that I have not adequately coveyed my feelings...and for this, I am sorry. I am soooooooooooo appreciative of your advice and your counsul. You have been a GREAT mentor. I am confident thatI will have the opportunity to play at a TOP academic school. I am in constant communication with several schools. YOU have made this a reality!!! I thank you and my dad thanks you.

Thank you so much for all your help!


Arizona Cross Country

Hey Tom,

Just wanted to let you know that I decided on Arizona. The cross country coach at UW wasn't returning my phone calls so I just decided to forget about it. I think I would have chosen Arizona over UW anyway, even if I did have offers from both schools. Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for all your help. You really made things a lot less stressful, and had you not called Coach Li, Arizona wouldn’t have even been an option for me.

Thanks again,

Bucknell Soccer

Hi Tom,

I just wanted to let you know that Saturday Ben called me (I think he called you as well) and offered me the final recruiting slot. I thought about it for a couple of days and decided to accept. I just wanted to let you know and hopefully we will chat about it when you have a chance. Thank you for all of your help with this process, especially with talking to Ben on my behalf.

Talk to you soon,

Thank you so much for all your guidance and advice; you were a tremendous help. Best of luck with all your future applicants.


Duke Track

Hey Tom,

I received my admissions letter from Duke yesterday- I got in!! I'm so excited and I wanted to share the good news with you. I also know this means retracting all of the other applications I sent off, contacting all the other coaches, as well as contacting Coach Jermyn of Duke. I'll be sure to do that soon, seeing as how I'm on Christmas break now and I have my surgery tomorrow so I will have plenty of free time! I also wanted to thank you for all your help with this whole process; the advice you have given me has been so valuable and I couldn't have done any of it without you. I know the ultimate goal was to get me recruited and signed, but I know that Duke is place for me athletically AND academically, so hopefully I can rehab my knee and try to walk-on. Thanks again and I hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday with your family.

All the best,

Rice Basketball


I have been gone most of the weekend and wanted to take my time writing to you.
I was notified on Friday that I have been admitted to Rice as a member of the class of 2011!!

I really want to thank you for all the help you gave me. At times it seemed like a lot of work but it was worth it. You made it easy to ask questions and I always felt comfortable with your advice. I know you work with a lot of kids but I always felt like you were there to help me at any time. I appreciate all your time and hard work.

Thanks again,

Johns Hopkins Baseball

Denison Track and Cross Country


I cant thank you enough for all of the work you have done for me along the way. Your advice and input made the whole process so much easier. I am very happy with my decision so please write me in as a success!


Columbia Women’s Soccer

It didn’t come in this mail today, but thanks soooo much Tom!
Thank you!
So, does the likely letter come from Columbia? Is it frame-able???? ;-)
I would like to talk to you in the next day or two, but must run now.
can’t thank you enough Tom!

Women’s Volleyball

Tom Chandler really helped me discover some great schools I would not otherwise have known about. His interest in my college experience really showed he cared more about my happiness after I got to the school and not just about getting me recruited. Without his help, I would not have been able to get a full ride and I would probably be attending a local community college and needing to get a full-time job. Because of his help, volleyball now is my job and I love it!



THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Like I said I could not have done it without you, thank you!!


Bowdoin Men’s Lacrosse


I still use this email sometimes and I am loving it so far.
Again, Thank you so much for everything you did to get me here. I truly couldn't have done it without you.

Hope all is well with you.

Bucknell Women’s Soccer

Tom, I am going to call him tomorrow after school! I am so excited and been waiting for the day when I just tell him YES! Just wanted to let you know before I did it. Thank you for everything you have done for me! I honestly couldn't have done any of this without your help! You are the best!!!!



Hey Tom,

I'll hear the 15th and will let you know. Thanks for everything. Your guidance has been the key.


Holy Cross Baseball
