52. It was the effect in the real world

Universities had a suggested minimum entrance criteria. Back then it was GPA and test scores. However, much of their student body did markedly better that the minimum criteria. Those admitted at the minimum were at a disadvantage and it often showed. Minority graduation rates compared to admission rates showed a vast disparity. If those same students had decided to go a less prestigious school, they would have been more competitive and a much better chance of graduating.
