These Ivy League and other prestigious universities have completely stood higher education in the USA on its head for the sole purpose of achieving ‘diversity.’ Does anyone to this day believe Mrs. Obama would have been admitted without the boost of her minority status?
We can only hope (in vain) that the day comes when applicants don’t have to check off race/gender OR relatives who’ve graduated from the institution OR NCAA standing.
They insist on admitting less qualified students to make their diversity numbers look good .. regardless of the admittee’s readiness. The ‘legacy’ and athletics admitee process also admits students less than prepared for rigorous academics. It happens at the Ivies, at the military academies, at top ranked colleges across the country. And, God knows, it happens at the big sports schools.
It would be nice to think that there is at least one university in the USA that is a true meritocracy. Don’t think we’ll see that in any of our lifetimes.
