It could simply be a time issue? If we think at extremes--someone who will graduate at 22, and someone who is 30, with the same academic profile and same (however they would compare these) softs, the KJD can try again, but the 30 year old is honestly getting on the older side.
Also, I think while it may be a preference, I think it is also because it is hard for to weigh and compare UG participation and softs. It's easy to know exactly what an investment analyst does and how hard she works, but it's hard to compare that with a student athlete. Or, perhaps that investment analyst was also a student athlete--now quite honestly, her softs are
just better. So it could be that, as we've expected, KJDs overall have worse softs.
