No offense, but that sounds like an Averett admissions person I overheard once.
Her comment was, "A lot of our students aren't the best test-takers, so their SATs aren't good. And a lot of the time, their grades aren't that great, either, but they're still really good students!"
No. No, they're not.
You could make the argument that we should be ashamed or motivated by how low we are within the ACC, but it's tough to make the argument that we should be proud of our inclusiveness. It's clearly inferior.
