cbw123 posted.....So, is Cornell sleazy about their numbers? Consensus is yes.
MLD posted....I don't have the numbers for Cornell, but I am assuming that they are allowed even more lower band players than Dartmouth.
varska posted......^ I know what you're saying, MLD. And I don't want to break bad on any Ivy program because, while the model isn't perfect, collectively i think they're doing a better job of recruiting true student/athletes than just about anywhere else in the world of D1 sports. <Hat tip to Stanford>
That said, when you talk about an Ivy League school having access to a larger pool of potential recruits because the AI requirement isn't as high, you have to also assume that those same kids are getting scholarship offers from other schools. So you might have a situation where the Ivies with the stronger FA packages (HP) are cherry picking the upper bands, and the scholarship schools are going after the power recruits in the lower bands and able to give full-rides.
