Ah, but that isn't what I typed. I was referring to the admissions push. Good for you if you didn't realize it was going on, but as a female engineer in a highly selective college that was trying to boost the female engineer numbers, I ran it to that quite a bit. Actually, I worked in the admissions office for a while and saw it first hand. I'm not trying to put female engineers down (being one, I actually think we're awesome...), but I do think there's a point here. If you try too hard to get people in the door (by making it easier), it undermines that group's credibility.
