Rit seeking to select tomorrow's leadership class from among their economically privileged clientele Acceptance in prestigious colleges still remains beyond the reach of most students except those from high income professional families Ultimately the author suggests reforms that would move America's top schools toward becoming genuine academic meritocraci.
