Black students were five times less likely and Hispanics three times less likely than white students to enroll in highly selective colleges in 2004
Regardless of race, students with family incomes in the top tier were seven to eight times more likely to enroll in a highly selective school than students at the bottom tier. It was also found that in the top income tier, white students were four times more likely than black students to attend a highly selective college. On average, two to three times as many white students as black students were enrolled.
