Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book says it all, or much of it all, about how terrible, and maybe illegal, alumni-chiild preferences ("legacy preferences") in college admissions are. An enjoyable read, and crucial if you want to understand some of the "dark side" of university admissions practices.
