Legacy/Children of Alumni Assignment

Instructions:
Read all of Chapter 9a.   Then answer questions 1-8 below in number format on the short story entitled “ONE MORE TIME” about Legacies/Children of Alumni on p. 403.    To make sure you have the correct story, it begins with “I know a lot of people who whine and complain about the children of alumni…..”

1. What’s the issue at hand (question at issue)?

2. Is it significant?

3. a. List the claims being made (you need to find 6 + claims)

b. Is there a factual basis to the claims? Why or why not?

c.What kind of evidence is being provided in support of the claims?

d. Is the use of statistics or other numerical evidence credible?

4. How credible is the speaker as well as the sources cited?

5. What assumptions are underlying any claims being made? (at least 3 + assumptions)

6. Is the language that is being used loaded or slanted in any way? (at least 3 +)

7. Are there any logical fallacies (pp. 396-399) in the argument? (you need to find at least 6+ fallacies). You need to identify which sentences in the story are fallacies and specify which fallacy (or fallacies) they violate. For example:

“If we cut down on the number of legacy admissions, what would happen to the college budget? We might not even be able to keep things running!” Slippery Slope

8. Is there anything important being left out of the presentation?

Why aor ad antla Chitfalren to e iar The real clincher, though, is that alumni children, when they be- come alumni themselves, are golng to be major donors to the college. .The more of a Eamily tradition you have of being connected to the school, the more likely you are to make majar financial contributions. In Cromwell's alumni magazine, I read about a research study that showed that in their Erst two years after graduation, 78 percent of legacies donated a total of $100 or more to Cromwell. Only 36 percent of non-legacy graduates donated$100 or more in their first two years out. Like most colleges, Cromwell depends on alumni support to raise funds. If we cut down our number of legacy admissions, what would happen to the college budget? We might not even be able to keep things running! I guess that's why most private colleges across the country admlt alumni children at higher rates-Cromwell is just do- ing what all the other colleges do. 403 I think the people who complain about legacy admissions are jealous and mean-spirited. They need to calm down and take a longer view of things. After all, their children will be able to benefit from the legacy admission advantage as well. 5:23 AM
