About that "Meritocracy"

A fine review of elite universities and who gets in. Not surprisingly, the same people who've always gotten in. The sports scholarships that were used to keep WASP admissions up a hundred years ago are serving the same purpose these days."The Price of Admission: How America's Ruling Class Buys Its Way into Elite Colleges—and Who Gets Left Outside the Gates" It's good to know that the privleged elites aren't going to have to squeak by on just their SATs.
