    What do you want to do with it? Do you want to work with teams/individuals as a strength coach, or do you want to work (or go for a phd) at a lab doing research?

    I recommend Springfield College, but then again I might be a bit bias (I got my MS and am finishing my PhD there). For the size of the school, those of us in the human performance lab and strength and conditioning facilities are quite spoiled.

    EDIT: If you want to do human performance research and work in a lab, Dr. Triplett at ASU has put out some great stuff.

    Ideally, I'd like to work with teams as a strength coach. I've been looking/ leaning towards Springfield for some time now but was looking for any outside advice just to make sure I hadn't overlooked another option.

    If that's what you want then Springfield is your best option. I can tell you about the people from my class who are now working for either professional, semi-pro, or collegiate teams across the country. Plus, our strength and conditioning facility is similar that of D1 schools:

    I was hoping you'd respond seeing as you're one of the more knowledgable posters but I didn't know you actually attended there. I appreciate the advice
