A large portion of students at Yale and Harvard are from well to do families. They are elite Universities that are expensive. If you do not come from money, you have to have scholarships, grants or go into massive student loan debt. Point is, Bush was no more special than any other Yale student. There have been graduates of Yale who came from families with more money and influence I'm sure than the Bushes. I'm sure he's not the first person to get into a school based partly on family ties and he certainly won't be the last. Does it make it right or fair? Not particularly, not unless you take into account how hard people work to get where they are. Very few of the rich families had it handed to them. They applied themselves, worked hard and have been able to pass down some of their wealth, but also expect their children not to squander it, but instead to continue to earn their way. A small percentage of the wealthy in this country inheirited wealth, and that wealth had to be earned at some point. Wealth just does not appear out of nowhere. And other children of other Presidents do not get better treatment at schools than other students I'm sure. I'd bet they are asked to perform just as well as other students, if not better. After all, the eyes of the nation are on them. I'd also point out a C average at Yale does not equal a C average at a public University. Yale holds to higher standards, which is why it is more expensive.
