What exaclty do they mean by "educationally disadvantaged"?? (It's a question on Texas Tech's secondary) Is anyone in college really educationally disadvantaged? If we are all in college, then we all have the opportunity to study...so saying anything less might sound whiny. And I feel saying something like "I had to go to CC" might sound like you are complaining instead of helping (I didn't go to CC, I just used it as an example). What are they looking for? Inner city high schools? Unrecognized high schools (like mine was for a while for low TAAS scores...)? What is it? Thanks in advance for any help.
