So I came across a scatter plot of Columbia admissions, the said plot happened to show quite a few (enough to cause rumination) High GPA/Low SAT scores admitted, as well as High SAT/Lower GPA admitted. Now of course there are exceptions, those being international students, whose English isn’t up to par - so forth. Considering these findings, I’m curious as to how and what makes those applicants shine through to an Ivy board of admissions. It almost births the thought that there is such a thing as innate/distinguishable “ivy” students, perhaps an ivy temperament or disposition - despite a GPA or SAT score that would say elsewise. Thoughts?
