WSJ: Colleges Encourage Low SAT Scorers to Apply – Only to Reject Them

Breitbart-

A report published by the Wall Street Journal claims that American colleges and universities seeking to appear more exclusive buy the names of low-scoring SAT takers and then encourage them to apply — only so that they can reject the students.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, American colleges and universities are inviting students to apply with the intention of rejecting them. Why? Institutions are constantly looking to increase the number of applicants. With more applicants, colleges are able to reject more students for a small number of admission seats. This, in turn, lowers the university’s acceptance rate, which places the university higher in college rankings.

The report claims that American colleges and universities buy the names of low-scoring SAT takers from the College Board and send them invitations to apply. The invited students send in their filled out applications and submit the application fee, but these institutions have no intention to accept these students. In fact, they plan to reject them. read more

  1. Hey kids! Surprise – You’re just a pawn!
    All those participation trophies that were given to you throughout your childhood are meaningless.
    Welcome to life.
    Get over it.

  2. To be sure they carefully selected a few out of the many that tripped the right signals for them. Tranny’s, angry blacks, and lesbians who they’ll make a spectacle out of admitting.

  3. “Liberals don’t seem to understand that half the population has below-average intelligence.”

    Or that most of them are in that half.

    You have to have a certain degree of intelligence to realize that you lack enough intelligence to be considered intelligent.

  4. At least the bounced them before they laid a penny down in tuition money. My understanding is that it’s a hard and fast rule that 40% of freshmen won’t finish the first year.

  5. Isn’t it possible anymore to write a news story without repeating the details 3 or more times throughout the story?

    That can’t be! I’ve ne-ver met anyone less intelligent, than I.

  7. The cruelty of the followers of the progressive movement knows no limits. They are nasty, manipulative, sonsabitches. I keep posting it, and it bears reposting: never concede good intentions to self identified “progressives.” It is never warranted and furthermore it is a trap.

  8. It’s probably a numbers game to drive alumni donations. “Look! Our applications are up 20% this year!”

  9. OH HO! a decent Judge, a skilled ambulance chaser attorney, a class action suit and lottsa of secrets will come out. Imagine the colleges having to pay back (plus damages) every application fee for a rejected student since the scam started? Imagine people’s faith in Colleges falling to equal their faith in the press?

    People. Real people. Important people. Smart people. Not. Those “people”. Those deplorables.

    Saying “I got scammed.”? Saying “I was sold a fake.”? Saying “It’s not my fault!” (because, there’s always somebody else to blame) “But this Accredited™, Official™, Legal Tender for All Debts Public and Private™, title somebody else bought me” (because, even when I thought I could claim I couldn’t believe it was fake, I still wasn’t stupid enough to pay for it, myself) “is a fraud!”?

    I can’t see people… real people… smart people… important people… lining up… to cash those tickets. Of course, I’m merely deplorable.
