    I don't know what all you cougars are insinuating about me (except the obviously sexist taunts), but if you are saying that I watch priesthood sesh OR that I read the ensign I take offense.

    Leaked documents show BYU favored male applicants for years

    A document posted on the website Mormon Leaks shows during 2013 and 2014, BYU admissions gave preference to male applicants.
    A BYU spokeswoman said in a statement the school no longer gives admissions preference based on gender.
    A document titled, "New Freshman Index 2013-2014," shows that during that time, applicants to the university were scored on several factors to determine whether they'd be admitted to the school and male applicants were given an extra point.

    For "years" - two years to be exact.

    Interesting that this came so recently. Any chance this has a somewhat benign motive? Weren't female applicants outstripping males for a while? Maybe BYU wanted to push that back towards 50%. How many points are "possible" in an application anyway? What is the impact of 1 extra point? Are there any more questions I can ask in this one paragraph?

    Yes. Still the case. And the gap is widening.

    This is an issue with all US universities. Not just BYU. It's a real problem.

    Yeah, maybe BYU was worried there might be an uptick of lesbian activity or something if percentage of females got out of wack due to the lack of males on campus. Maybe the church should have just reinstated polygamy instead so that BYU would not be viewed as being sexist.

    You got more of a bump if you were from Missouri than if you were a guy.

    No extra consideration if your lineage is from the tribe of Levi and a literal descendant of Aaron's first born?

    Those are also the first years after the missionary age change, when lots of college-age women suddenly left.
    My school lost 4% of its student-body over Christmas break that first year, mostly 19-year-old women who became eligible to go on missions in October.

    I think we need the extra credit, lately having a penis has been a real handicap for men like Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, etc.

    I would think this has to do with the mission age changed to 18. That happened in October 2012. Seems like 2013 and 2014 would significantly impacted male applicants by that change.

    When did the change in missionary age occur? I wonder it was used to counterbalance the wave of female missionaries returning?

    Maybe if you stopped scanning this and other BYU boards for reasons to be offended you could get there.
