I went through a period of deep questioning and resentment for these admission preferences last year.
In the time since I’ve reflected on the question.
But without these tools how could schools offer meets full need, merit and other financial opportunities to other students without these funds? Fly in programs?
Not all of these lead to admission for their kids but at least keeps them in the game.
And what would buy the new buildings, pay for top professors and all the benefits afforded to students?
Would the middle class and lower ses students be completely locked out?
We want to broaden the net for students from all backgrounds to attend great schools.
So perhaps the anger is misplaced. If it wasn’t so, who pay for all of these kids to go to school?
