That would have been nice where I went to school. The valedictorians took mostly typing courses, while in the AP courses, they only gave a limited percentage of A's, forcing us to compete against each other, so none of us had the highest GPAs.

My neighbor's son, who could have gone to MIT or any Ivy school chose to go to Arizona State because they had a particular program for academically gifted kids that he wanted to go to. If a school has a more tailorable curiculum it could attract high achieving kids.
Also, not all tennis players want to work that hard in college.
