Know this is a late response,

but I believe that schools should pick students that meet their academic criteria, and they can have “differentiators.” But students who clearly don’t belong in college or on the campus because they have no interest in school shouldn’t be there. Do you think Duke one and dones have any interest in college? Is the Duke basketball team anything but a minor league team for the NBA and a bunch of kids who only go there to play basketball, the best of them hoping/planning to only do it for one year while attending easy classes at NCCU? All of the money in college sports is the principal cause of corruption in our university system. Does Duke do itself credit with this? Yes, they help their brand, but is it really worth it (“It profit a man nothing to sell his soul for the whole world, but for Wales?”)? Do we want to allow for the UNCheat Scandals (which are a direct result of our system), which of course are only encouraged by the total lack of punishment? No other country does this like we do, and while I’m generally not one to worry about how the rest of the world does things, in this case I think that they are right and we are wrong.
