Why Is This An Equity Issue?

• Because education is power yet this door to upward equity slams shut to those of us from marginalized/underrepresented groups.

• Because this information is not readily accessible to immigrant/racialized students who are more likely to be the first in the family to attend university.

• Because equal access to higher education is fundamental to equalizing power relations in society.

• Because low-income students can not afford exclusive $300 sessions on the topic such as those offered by Kaplan, Princeton Review, Oxford Seminars and other institutions which make up the “Get Into Law/Grad School” industry.
