    The whole demographics don't matter part can't be 100% true, there has to be mormon bias? no?

    The mormon bias is self selection. This isn't a school non mormons would naturally pick, and a short period of research usually clarifies any confusion for enthusiasts who have no knowledge outside of a few minutes of college rankings and cost/value stats. 98.5% of students are LDS, while 90% of footballers are LDS, there is some math you could do there. Religion is part of the core class structure.
    The OP is a link an article written by a student, not admissions.
