A&M Admissions Officer: Ten Percent Plan Needs Change

[Quote:] Statistics for the University of Texas last year showed 75

percent of the freshmen admitted were in the top 10 percent of their high school

class.

Texas A&M hopes not to be in the same boat, said Frank Ashley, associate provost

for enrollment….
Ashley said he believes the top 10 percent rule is a good rule, but it needs

some changes. He said he believes every student should take a college preparatory course, because some

students may not take more rigorous courses in high school. [end quote TheBatt.Com, Texas A&M, “Top

Ten Percent Rule Criticized,” by By Pammy Ramji, Jan. 30,

2004.]
