I really hope that isn't considered smart to you.


Edit: :facepalm: you said Foyle. Foyle had a 3.38 GPA but he did go to Colgate.

College athletes on scholarships get it pretty easy. First of all they get tutors which waters the shit out of the classes, they also take bullshit classes and their classes are watered down for them.

1. Nearly everyone at Harvard ends up with a 3.0+ GPA because of grade inflation. If you don't know what that is, look it up.
2. Every college in the country offers athletic scholarships, althought they may not be officially called "athletic scholarships." Also, the standards are much lower if you're recruited to play basketball at an Ivy league school. It's no different than being recruited to play a sport at an elite prep school.
3. I know slacker Asians and hardworking/intelligent Asians. Him being Asian has nothing to do with it. You come across as young and ignorant by saying that.

You have no clue as to what you're talking about.

Joke? Based on what I've heard about him, he probably barely cracked 3.0.

Not sure, though I'll bet many would know the correct punctuation for that sentence.

I wonder how many hours a day you're required to devote to strenuous athletic activity, meetings, school authorized appearances/charitable functions, extended trips away from campus, etc?

Being a student-athlete...and remember, there are a whole lot more of them than there are superstars that get to skirt the rules...is the toughest job you'll ever have.

Guessing your Ivy League knowledge is second hand.

Do people not know how to read? It says who has the highest GPA, not who is the smartest.

Smartest = Opinion
Highest GPA = Fact
