I'm guessing the 2.8 was a Tisch minority student with wealthy alumni donor parents
Not very funny.....
I know if I were an admissions officer I would admit the person who had a 2.9 with volunteer positions, great test scores, and actually tried their best in high school and genuinely wants to go to the college to learn rather than someone who has a 4.0, great test scores, leadership positions "on paper", who simply wants to go because of prestige reasons.
