    ^Agreed @compmom , nor is this correct from Riversider, "Many are mediocre or slack off but still get in."

    Some that don't get it in are great and qualified but don't diminish those that do get in. That is what's often referred to commonly as sour grapes. Most often expressed by those that get denied a spot and have never spent time on an Ivy campus. I have said it before, you are not a victim of bad luck or favoritism if you don't get into your school of choice. Someone else just stood out more relative to the school's desired community.
