During his senior year, he led the team in starts, innings pitched, complete games, shutouts and strikeouts, led starting pitchers in ERA and batting average against. He led the UAA and Liberty League in shutouts in 2015, breaking the school record.

Schulman also helped his Rochester squad to a school record 17 straight wins in 2015. He was a part of a program that reached the 25-win plateau as both a junior and senior, and qualified for the Liberty League Tournament Championship for the first time in school history.

In addition to playing for Rochester, Schulman was also a two-year member of the Niagara Power of the New York Collegiate Baseball League in the summers of 2013 and 2014, serving as a team captain his second year. He also was a communications intern for the Rochester Red Wings, the AAA affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.
