My family is very education oriented and ever since I have been accepted into UMichigan, I have been getting into heated debates with my family members about how good of a school UMichigan is.
My Argument: U Michigan is a top ranked school and is renowned for its academic excellence.
My Family's Argument: U Michigan's acceptance rate is near 50% meaning its easy to get into. Other colleges like UVA (30%) and Havard (<10%) Are harder to get into therefore a better school. Better school therefore harder to get into, weaker school, easier to get into.
How do I fight that logic?
My main argument so far has been that U Michigan's size allows them to house many students therefore their acceptance rate is higher.
