A lot of blue chips did not get into the IVYs who wanted to go.
It is not a secret........

And the 800 on the SATs has to be coupled with a curriculum that was very challenging, Physics, Calculus, 4 years of language, a number of AP classes with the 5 on the exam, SAT 2, etc.....

However, the foreigner who is ten steps ahead of the Blue Chip, that young man they will make allowances for. Even the English language.
