Looks more or less set in stone, save for Smith, Wesleyan, and Bates.

You would think there would be a way of leveling private versus public schools. Average SAT at UC Berkeley is 2050. The average at Harvard is 2350, which is a huge difference. What I'd like to know is how well these schools did with their point of beginning.
