I actually feel that Bok and Bowen would both be very pleased with the dramatic improvement in the academic quality of Ivy student athletes now compared to the Ivy student athletes in the 1960s to 1980s era. Reflective of the vast improvements in quality of overall applicant pools, the football, basketball and hockey averages for GPA and SAT test scores for both the team average and for the lowest tier of recruits clearly have significantly improved. When you go to alumni reunions, so many of the athletes are the first to recognize that they would no longer be able to be admitted with today's far more competitive applicant pool. While there always be a few isolated exceptions or some athletes who may get in trouble, these Ivy student athletes of today are equally talented in the classroom as they are on the field, basketball court or hockey rink.
