The law of most universities is that admission should be limited only to those who reach certain benchmarks such as high graded test scores, interesting extra curricular activities, high admission test scores, and excellent letters of recommendation.
Imagine what our schools would be like if some of the places in the class was reserved for students whose only redeeming factor was a major accomplishment in a category ordinarily reserved for adults. The students would learn about entrepreneurship, keeping records, and other courses that develop their natural abilities, and that enable them to excel in a proven field. I believe we would have solutions to some of our world's most pressing problems.
