Tim has great grades, high GMAT scores and was president of his senior class. He has been accepted to Stanford Business School. Tim will certainly attend Stanford Business School next year.
The author's conclusion that Tim will attend Stanford Business School would be most strengthened if it were true that:

A) Tim applied to no schools other than Stanford Business School.
B) Grades are the most important factor for admission to Stanford Business School.
C) Students who are accepted to Stanford Business School attend Stanford Business School.
D) Stanford Business School is the most prestigious business school in the world.
E) Stanford Business School has tougher admission standards than does any other business school in the United States.

I think A is the correct choice. IF he only applied to stanford and got accepted, he will most definitely go since there is no alternative(and whats the point of applying to only one school and end up not going when accepted?). C is close second and may be the correct answer..

I think it should be C.

A: What if he decides NOT to go to SBS? This will weaken the argument.
B. Irrelevant.
C. This is the author's assumption, and if it's true in all cases then Tim will certainly attend SBS.
D. Irrelevant.
E. Again, irrelevant.

Between A and C. My pick is C.
He did not apply for other colleges doesnt mean he will join Stanford. Might or might not??
