As I mentioned yesterday, a large fraction of whites admitted to the Ivy League are recruited athletes, typically for minor sports like skiing or squash. They generally have lower test scores than white applicants less likely to get in.
Other whites who get admitted in high proportions are legacies, faculty children, and donors’ kids.
Whites who do not get admitted in high proportions are smart, hard-working young white people with no “hook.”
How much does the high proportion of white jocks etcetera at Ivy League universities contribute to stereotypes of whites as privileged and stupid?
