A kid can get admitted to Ole Miss, the flagship school of Mississippi that I assume would take the best and brightest of the state, with a 2.5????

Yes you could have a 2.5 with like a 23 ACT and get into Ole Miss. They sort of use a sliding scale. Apparently the state of MS really cannot deny anyone entry into a public university, relating to the Ayers Case I think, but I'm not very knowledgeable about the Ayers Case....

Sophomores have a good chance I would say, especially if they have a high GPA, lots of involvement, and they know lots of girls already in houses!

Huh? I thought the Ayers settlement allocated funding to historically black colleges in MS. I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with Ole Miss' admission standards. (Or, apparently, lack thereof.)

Even if a high school student meets the minimum GPA necessary for admission, it does not mean the university is required to admit her/him. Many private universities, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Stanford, do not have minimum GPA requirements. Yet no one says that someone with a 1.0 high school GPA would/should be admitted to Harvard. Other factors are taken into consideration. I am sure the same is true with Ole Miss.

I'm still kind of shocked that a 2.5 gpa requirement would be cited as a reason why recruitment numbers would be lower this year than years previous. Is that type of gpa THAT common at Ole Miss?

Even if the numbers were lower than in past years, is there something wrong with quota being under 80? As someone from a pledge class of about 25 (which was normal at my Univ.), I can't imagine trying to bond with a pledge class 3-4 times the size, or a chapter of 300 women. It boggles my mind!

Ole Miss is a very good university but we are no Vanderbilt or say UGA, as compared to other SEC schools. We have a nationally ranked Honors College and other great programs. Anyway, 2.5's can be common especially for out of state students. Many TX, LA, and GA kids come here because they were not able to get their "Tops" or "Hope" scholarships. (LA started there scholarships a couple of years ago.) Therefore, you will see lower grades with students here as opposed to Vanderbilt or UGA. Many of these kids will transfer to UGA or LSU after a couple of years of getting their grades up at Ole Miss.

I was always told that the Ayers case did play a part into creating a sense that no student is denied entrance into any public university in the state of MS.

I don't think any house on campus would be upset if our new member classes were smaller. Yes the houses at Ole Miss are larger but there is still sisterhood and the traditions/rituals of each group are stilled fufilled.

No, what Ayers said was that Mississippi could not use ONLY SAT/ACT scores to deny entry to their public institutions. They can still have admissions standards, they just can't base admissions solely on SAT/ACT.
