AsiaSunset, you raise a good point. For those of us actively involved the admissions process, you will discover many surprises in admissions decision processes, as well as many students like Kyle Wilcox who flourish in college once they are given the resources offered by the Ivy experiences. Our admissions offices overall do a remarkable job. Thanks for this insight.

I do dispute the premise that HYP are more difficult from an admission standpoint for football players. It is true that schools with a wider band 1 are theoretically at a disadvantage but you have to remember that those schools can pick whom they want for the two slots. Therefore it cannot be said that a third kid who is a band 2 at one or more of the other schools could not be admitted to HYP. He could easily be admitted in Band 1 if the coaches wanted
I agree that Wilcox is a bad example to show that HYP Is more rigorous than the other schools regarding admissions

You are wrong that schools with a higher AI are not more difficult for a coach in football admissions than a school with a lower AI. Forcing a school to admit only two out of three recruits it wants while another school can admit all three is an obvious reflection of the higher AI at the former school and this is purely an academic standard. The same thing happens to a degree across higher bands.
