SAS SUCCESS STORIES

MIYE

 

RIPON COLLEGE, SOCCER

We’re thrilled with our daughter’s choice and the opportunity. I can honestly say it wouldn’t have happened without SAS. They are giving her a merit scholarship worth $25,000 a year – a $100,000 return on our SAS investment. Of course our daughter has the grades, skills, and intangibles to merit the award, but the introduction through SAS is what got the ball rolling.

INDIANA UNIVERSITY

I would like to thank everyone at SAS for helping me with my college recruiting process. Without SAS, I would have no idea about all the schools that recruited me and they would have had no idea about me!  I will be attending Indiana University on scholarship this upcoming year. Thank you SAS for everything you did! It was great working with you and I will turn everyone I can your way.

MATTHEW

 

UCLA, WATER POLO

Thank you for the support you provided in helping me accomplish this college sports dream. I was fortunate to have a choice of offers from many colleges! The journey to UCLA was an exciting and memorable ride. I will be a contributing player my freshman year and I am looking forward to at least one NCAA ring over my four year career. I will also be fortunate to earn a degree from one of the top Universities in the nation. Thank you for your support in helping me realize this dream!
