I say E. I disagree with the posted reasoning for E. If people apply, then they want to attend that school. Now whether the students choose not to attend after getting accepted is out of our scope because that requires making an assumption, which you shouldn't. The reasoning given by some people for option E could be true, but it must not be true because there is nothing explicitly written in the argument that would suggest that students could change their minds after getting accepted. I think you guys have given it way too much reasoning than this argument deserves. what's the OA? I choose E.

To make my point:

If A, then B

correct inference: If not B, then not A
wrong inference: If not A, then not B

Example:

If it's GMAT, then it's computer adaptive

Correct Inference: If not computer adaptive, then it's not GMAT
Wrong Inference: If not GMAT, then it's not computer adaptive-----> wrong because we could be talking about the GRE


So if you look at option E, it is following this pattern.

hope this helps

I think it is C. instead of going forward (as in the rest, A, B, D, E) from highschool to college, it works backwards. the stem states that if the students from TopNotch High School apply (and we know that they have at least IQ120) to at least one IvyLeague school, then the are accepted. So, if there is a person with IQ 130 attending an Ivy League school, then it is POSSIBLE that he/she gradated from TopNotch Highschool.
