How big is the advantage/disadvantage associated with a player's preference to proximity?  For example, if I'm interested in a kid who's right next door, but he prefers "Far From Home," does this put me at a big disadvantage to someone further away?

Also, does anyone know the range that "Close to Home" and "Far From Home" applies to?

I don't think it is very much

I wouldn't consider proximity a factor in deciding who to recruit at all. The impact is minimal. According to some estimates, it is roughly close to the cost of one home visit. The breakpoint for home/far away is 300 miles.

I actually think the far from home preference is pretty significant. The close to home not so much.

Does anyone know the answer to this question - in other words if I am 400 miles away from a prospect that wants to go far from home, and a school that is 20 miles from him is competing with me, how much of an advantage do  I have?
