Don't think I'd characterize Vtech as a "top school" unless you're talking about size and not quality. UVA admits about 24% of its applicants. Vtech admits 70%. No mystery as to why the latter is a wrestling power.
Stanford typically appears as having the most successful sports programs in Division 1 - and it's not a big school You don't get all those top athletes by imposing stringent admission requirements for athletes.
