But that's not exactly 50 percent. And frankly, prob 1/3 to 1/4 of the athletes are actually genuinely smart and gifted people and so are many of the URM. So i'm glad you automatically associate being an athlete and URM with being stupid. I'm glad there are people like you in the world.
I have been getting straight A from elementary to now a senior in college. I am not only camparing myself to Athleles and URM alone.
I am comparing with all the Ivies students. I am being modest by saying i am better than 50 % of all Ivies students.
