All the Ivy matriculants from my daughter's high school the last few years were obvious profiles: Top 10 overall ranking (out of 200), great but not perfect test scores, super involved at school, charismatic, outgoing, and always obsessive readers.
And if shut out of the Ivys, the "worst" they end up at is Northwestern or Notre Dame. That's why I don't buy the random or luck aspect so many parents complain about. Cream rises to the top.
