Texas Aggie: High Schools not Equal

[Quote about Princeton Study] What the survey suffers from is the same problem that the top

10 percent law does: It treats all high schools the same. The automatic admissions program means that a

student with a 4.0 grade point average who does not place in the top 20 percent of his class at a

competitive school must fight for admissions while the valedictorian at a mediocre high school with a

3.5 grade point average is automatically admitted to the school of his choice. [endquote from Texas A&M

Battalion, “Unruly Behavior,” Matt Maddox Jan. 29,

2004.]
