GS does not accept students right out of high school. The coaches do not recruit GS students. We had a vet who played baseball a few years ago who was in GS. I think there may be a vet who walked on for football last year but am not sure. A good percentage of the student body at GS are now vets. GS students are by definition older, they do not live in dorms, and they have the option of taking a partial course load. The admissions statistics for GS are irrelevant since they do not recruit from the same pool as the College or the much smaller engineering school. While I do not regard myself as a fan of GS as an abstract proposition, it is hard to quarrel with giving deserving vets a chance at a quality education.
