privilege and university admission

Teppo

Fabio blogged earlier this week about how early admissions policies (which favor the wealthy) are being dropped at Ivy League universities.  Read this eye-opening Economist article (via politicaltheory.info) about just how far top universities are willing to go to bring in the wealthy, privileged and “legacies” (children of alumni). Hmm, of course if your ambition is to become a CEO, you might be better off going to Chico State.
