    Hello everyone!

    We found an article on the Salt Lake Tribune that explains how a website called Mormon Leaks leaked a document that allegedly shows how Brigham Young University makes its admissions decisions. (Please click on the link above for the full story.) If the document is true, then BYU gives some preference to applicants who are male, from the East Coast and first-generation college students.

    It’s important to emphasize, again, that these are allegations. It’s also important to note that there is no law prohibiting private colleges from giving preference to applicants based on their gender.

    A BYU spokesman was quoted in the article stating, “BYU is constantly revising and updating its admission process. For instance, in the spring of 2015, BYU stopped giving any additional weighting for gender. Other changes have been made throughout the years as well.”

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Sincerely,
