If athletic recruits are admitted to the Ivies based on their Academic Index.
And if the Ivies can (generally) only recruit athletes that with an AI within 1 standard deviation of the average AI of all students at that school.
And if average AI of the students at Cornell is lower than at the rest of the Ivies.
And if (generally) most of the real impact athletes have lower AIs.
Then it seems that Cornell should have the largest potential athletic recruiting pool and would be able to recruit more impact athletes than any of the other Ivies
,,, and should dominate the other Ivies in sports.
But that's not the case. Why?
