Reminds me of 20 years ago when my brothers 3 children were raised without the benefit of cable TV. When they came over to our house, they would love to watch "Robot Wars" or "Myth Busters". We used to laugh at them. Well turns out that 2 of the 3 kids got into Stanford and the third one got into Dartmouth. This is without being in a legacy program or any donations or any other connections to the schools. We don't laugh anymore!
