Sorry, I don't follow your logic, fenway.
And I'm not sure I agree with you that Miller has a reputation for impeccable integrity.
She made it clear that the majority of admits during ED are athletes.
Well, I really don't think that we misunderstood.
My D was invited to a Brown admissions presentation (along with Johns Hopkins, Cornell, Barnard and Bryn Mawr). It was intimate- about 12 students. My D asked the Brown admissions person about ED. She said that frankly ED is not an advantage unless you are an athlete. Their stats show that something like 26% of ED are athletes. She basically was very discouraging to applicants whose first choice is Brown but are not offering the school something that they really want- a strong hook I would imagine.
My D was invited to a presentation where Brown and some other selective colleges ( Barnard, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Bryn Mawr) gave a lot of information about the application process. There were only about 10-12 students there. My D specifically asked about ED for Brown. Admissions related that there would be no advantage to applying ED. She made it clear that the majority of admits during ED are athletes. She was not encouraging at all.
A friend of ours just went to an info session and got the exact same message as goingnutsmom.
