The article "Women raise the bar at colleges" by Tamar Lewin made me think a lot about how colleges are handling their enrollment percentages and their students grades. The article said that girls in most colleges are getting better grades boys and that the enrollment of girls is higher. I am not suprised by this fact because i think that a lot of colleges are getting guys who don't particularly have good grades but are good athletes so they are allowing them in into good colleges. And nobody is really against college sports so they slip by with below average grades. And I don't think this is fair for girls who actually had good grades and got into colleges by that. And with college sports getting more popular, players are partying more and not studying as much as they are suppose to which also brings their grades down.
