Re "Rejection list long at elite colleges" (Page A1, April 9): I agree with the Stanford dean, when he says he is in a shock that so many bright students are being turned away because of low admission rates of higher universities. Stanford accepted 5 %? Whew! Where's the logic? If this country expects to be No.#1, how can we hope to be top-notch in sciences, economics, math, understanding of governmental affairs? The brains are being left by the wayside. We are missing the boat!
