I might be reading it wrong, but he never actually got into Stanford I don't think. It actually takes much more than 4.0's to get into that school.

My good friend got a 1540 on his SAT's (back when it was out of 1600), ~4.1 GPA, his dad went to Stanford, and he had extracurriculars such as baseball and student government. He didn't make it into Stanford.

Math. There's something about solving problems -- math problems or whatever it may be -- that makes you feel like you accomplished something. I remember taking algebra, an advanced class -- those were hard problems. And I was, just, interested.

yea, I just don't see westbrook being some elite student. he's a great basketball player, and is probably a top 7-10 player in the league right now, but I would not want him as my lawyer, banker, doctor, accountant, etc.
