Has Admissions Changed Since the Scandal?
The University of Virginia announced this month that it had conducted a review of its admissions policies in the wake of the admissions scandal.
The university wasn’t involved in the scandal. But officials said they wanted to investigate. What they found was mixed. The university found no evidence that any athletes had been admitted to Virginia through cheating on the SAT or pretending to be an athlete, as was the case for many of those indicted. But back a few years, the university found “a small number of cases” where “the prospect of a gift appears to have motivated the recruitment of student-athletes.”
