3. This is what I have heard about Harvard Law:
That it is hard to gain admission (now), but, once you gain admission, it is not that hard to stay in and graduate.

It's kind of "We're Harvard. We don't make mistakes. When we admit someone, he or she is especially gifted. Of course, they will be able to be graduated. Plus, we take care of our own."

Now, I don't know if it was as hard to get into Harvard in Romney's day, when going to college was not as commonplace as it is today..

But, yesteryear or today, Mittens had a pappy who was rich, famous and powerful. People who have pappies or moms like that tend to succeed.

And a successful person who was graduated from Harvaard tends to reflect well on Harvard. Universities like having Presidents, Governors, Senators and heads of rich companies among their alums. Looking at Willard's profile, the admissions team would have seen a good possibility of yet another rich and powerful Harvard alum.
