Now, Jennifer Gratz, the white female student made Ward Connerly's damsel, went on to go to college somewhere else -- the University of Michigan - Dearborn as a matter of fact. But the supposed tragedy of it all was that she wasn't "allowed" to have her first choice of schools. Well...
quote:According to the Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI), 49 percent of African-American students at four-year private colleges were attending their first-choice schools versus 70 percent of Caucasians. At four-year public institutions, 42 percent of African Americans were at their first-choice schools, compared with 69 percent of Caucasians.
Another tidbit for our visiting nitwit:
quote:While a low-income student has an increased dependence on student loans, African-American students are more reticent about borrowing for college than are their Caucasian counterparts. To cover costs, African-American students turn to off-campus employment 10 percent more frequently, and they are more likely to be employed full time while attending school.
