This is an excellent article. There ought to be a few schools where admission is solely on the basis of academic accomplishment.

Agree totally with Mr. Brody's comments. I was one of those "Catholics" who gained admission (class of '76). I didn't think the entrance requirements were discriminatory. I am totally against the proposed changes in admission criteria.

Weakening the admission standards for specialized schools will have the effect, as it did for CCNY Open Admissions, of cheapening the value of being a graduate of these schools for college admission and later career situations. When I was a student (class of '59) the students were overwhelming Jewish. No one complained that Catholics and Protestants were discriminated against. Some groups tend to focus on education as a way up. I would be concerned if the requirements for admission have become more difficult over the years due to more applicants.
