I can't believe you are asserting that being in the 85th percentile is not impressive. This is one of the most pretentious, illogical things I have ever heard. Out of every 20 people, you are 3rd best. Wow, that sucks actually, you should not be proud of yourself at all. And the whole fact that people can go up to that point that easily makes it EVEN MORE impressive to ACTUALLY achieve it. IF so many people are accruing the tools to be in the 85th percentile, and someone has to win out, how much more impressive is it to be this person? On LSD we are constantly surrounded with people who are applying to T-14 schools; this is so far from being representative of reality. Your argument, is flawed, elitist, and unnecessarily patronizing to people in the 85th percentile who should be extremely proud of their accomplishments.
