I'd think most students would have either stellar scores or other things that distinguish them above local and regional activities-except legacy and development admits. I know more students who've attended that other school down Mass Ave and most of them certainly have such credentials; and the same has been true for students I've known at Harvard. I'm surprise that it's not true for most students at Harvard. Not all. And maybe not a while ago. But now.
SkiEurope, looking forward--Yes it would surprise me if there were many Harvard admits with scores such as those listed above (very good but not stellar) who are not legacy/development admits and who have not been involved in any national activities (ranked player in a sport, academic competitions, music performances, publishing, etc) or have won national awards of some sort.
