    ...is that only recently (like, VERY recently) have people started thinking about these students once they're actually admitted!  You can give someone a free ride but they're unable to do any of the activities (including ones that are "curricular," not even "extracurricular") that cost money and the other students pay for without a moment's thought.  And in our globalized-and-classist society, they are MUCH more disconnected from other students than the Chinese oligarch's son or the Salvadoran factory owner's daughter.
