A slide-bar allows users to choose “selective” or “highly selective” schools for potential matches.
Not much room for community college or technical school there.
“Why meet people on Tinder when there’s all these guys in real life? Dating apps eliminate much of the gray area; you simply swipe right if you find the other person attractive. In addition to being superficial and provably racist, I argue they may also contribute to income inequality. By allowing users to tailor their preferences, these apps capitalize upon “assortative mating,” which has been linked to growing wealth disparities in this country.
For our purposes, “assortative mating” refers to people choosing to marry people like themselves.
The League began operations in Atlanta in June, selecting 2002 applicants out of 9,327.
An illuminating New York Times study this year found roughly one in four of the richest college students in America attend an elite college.

I read with interest the numerous other articles, books, and blog posts about the "me, me, me generation" (as Joel Stein calls us), our rejection of chivalry, and our hookup culture — which is supposedly the downfall of college dating. I didn't walk away from my conversation with Nate expecting a bouquet of roses to follow. Nate never wrote or called me that night, even after I texted him at 11 p.m. As to why you got weird." But Nate didn't acknowledge his weirdness. But I didn't have the energy to tell Nate that I was sick of his (and many other guys') assumption that women spend their days plotting to pin down a man and that ignoring me wasn't the kindest way to tell me he didn't want to lead me on.
Like Bumble, the League also hosts mingling and networking events.
When two Buzzfeed writers attended an ultra-exclusive event in the Hamptons, they commented on the lack of diversity and homogenous class makeup. In a widely shared Linked In post, Bradford said she created the League to “build a community where smart, outspoken, high-achieving women are celebrated and encouraged to progress in their career full-time.” I love that idea, but I’m not totally convinced. If you are you a Vanderbilt banker or a Duke grad in Emory law school, there is good news.
