The data of student distribution of these top universities are even shocking! 38 best-known top unversities, including 5 universities known as the Ivy League- Dartmouth, Princeton, Yale, Pennsylvania, and Brown, the amount of the attendance from the richest 1% outnumbers the poor 60%.
Chart 2: WUSTL(rank 19 of the US), 21.7% from the richest, while only 6.1% from the poor 60%(annual household income amounts less than USD$65 thousand). That is to say, in this university, one in five of students comes from the 1%, on the contrary, six in one hundred of students there come from the 60%.
Compared to the pyramid economic distribution of the US, the family distribution of WUSTL is an inverted pyramid, with the 60% atop. The disproportion are among the rest universities in the Chart 2, they are actually noble schools.
