The Recruited Athlete’s Distinct Advantage
In 2004, William Bowen (the former president of Princeton) and two other researchers persuaded 19 elite colleges – including Harvard, Middlebury and Virginia – to let them analyze their admissions records. They found, holding SAT scores equal, that a recruited athlete was 30 percentage points more likely to be admitted than a non-athlete.
Likewise, according to The New York Magazine, “Recruited athletes have a distinct advantage in the admissions process,” and “athletes have an acceptance rate to the Ivies at well over twice the rate of other students.”
Knowledge is power: As the parent of a recruited athlete, you only get one chance to get this right. Come hear what the experts have to say!
