    Mr. Borrachos played hockey for an ECAC hockey school (Division 1). I won't say which one but suffice to say it is a very good school. He got a hockey scholarship but they also had a requirement on HS grades, SAT scores and rank, and while in school he had to maintain a 2.0 or better average to keep both his place on the team and his scholarship. I wish they applied the same requirements to the big football & basketball schools that they did to the Division 1 hockey schools.

    some of the good hockey schools take studies seriously

    Miami of Ohio, St Lawrence, RPI, all have had strong teams and good students.

    Your application of "should" was proven to be irrelevant and false to boot. Nobody who knows anything about academia would think a "college" has lower standards than a "university" because of the name.

    Amherst and Williams Colleges (where my niece is) are among the most difficult places to gain acceptance into. they compare favorably to Dartmouth College or Yale College (of Yale University)

    I read your words:

    University should be exclusive and elitist, the highest benchmark of education and academia with the most diverse and rigorous of requirements. The best and brightest should be selected. For the rest, there's College (which should be different from University),

    Which matters not to, or change the fact that I quoted what you said and placed it into perspective as unlikely.
    And as this is a debate site, it is obvious that you could not refute what I stated.
    So you are welcome.

    My niece was almost a shoe in at Yale but she knew she wouldn't make the varsity The williams coach-after looking at her GPA (#1 in her class, boards-2250 or so) and her national ranking told her she'd be able to play at Williams and they would let her in. so she went Early Admissions there and was-as he noted-accepted.
