    Student Admissions
    Admissions want to investigate alternate means of determining who will be admitted to their university as freshmen. The admissions counselors determine that one of the best predictors of undergraduate grade point average (GPA) is a student's high school GPA. They compile information through their databases about their high school GPA and their freshmen year GPA for all students admitted to the university in the past five years. After running the data through a program, they are determined to find out if the predictive ability of the high school GPA is accurate.
