The Best Universities Not Attracting the Best Qualified of the Poor

Share Article

A recent study shows the best universities aren't attracting the gifted poor, and part of the reason is lack of information on the students' behalf; Universities.com is a free education website designed to offset such findings and connect students with the education they deserve.

Universities.com wants more students to take advantage of its free college information in an attempt to increase the number of extremely gifted, low-income high school seniors getting into the country's most selective colleges.

A recent study, conducted by Caroline M. Hoxby and Christopher Avery in December of 2012, shows only 34 percent of high-achieving high school seniors in the bottom fourth of income distribution attending the best universities — $41,472 being the dividing line for the bottom quarter percentile. These students are without the proper guidance, support, and facts they need to get into the country’s 238 most selective colleges, which is why it’s imperative to take advantage of free academic information.

"Students need to know the truth about higher education," says Paul Moses, CEO of Universities.com. "Universities.com is the bridge between students of all ranks of life and the education they deserve."

Universities.com has free access to degree programs and thousands of online and traditional colleges and universities to assist all income-level college students. The website also includes expert advice on career sites, choosing the right loans, financing college, and saving money on textbooks and other college expenses. Universities.com’s online degree portal offers the resources needed to ensure students are choosing the right post-secondary schools and are prepared to correctly handle typical college situations.
