Re: Rising academic and professional standards are not the primary cause [#permalink]
. The increase in admission standards, which has resulted in lower acceptance rates, is primarily a result of the recent economic recession.

Which of the following, if true, would best support the argument above?

A. Many prospective students have been deterred from applying to graduate school because of decreasing acceptance rates. Already stated in the passage. Nothing new . Low acceptance rates. Incorrect

B. Many professionals have lobbied for higher academic standards at graduate schools. Not concerned about professionals

C. Many professionals with graduate degrees would not have been admitted to graduate programs had they faced current admission requirements. Not concerned about professionals

D. Many first year graduate students cite layoffs and downsizing as the primary reason that they decided to return to school. Implicitly tells economic recession is the reason behind more students going back to business schools. Correct

E. There are twice as many universities offering graduate programs today as twenty years ago irrelevant
