    Is your hypothesis not conflating two issues, does your premises actually indicate the academic rigour of each institution?
    Nope. We're talking about admissions. Easy universities are those that are easy to get into, in both relative and absolute terms. Look at the context.

    Correct me (which I am sure yo will) if I am wrong, but you are speaking in the US context of admissions acceptance rates correct?

    If so they are an apples to oranges comparison, contextually, statistically and culturally...

    Easy is subjective and is dependent on certain criteria... and in the end is meaningless

    Nope. Lots of assumptions being made here.

    I've got TSR open in a tab while I work. Standard practice. Then again, that doesn't mean that I have the time to engage in a multi-page debate on anything.

    Not all of them do, sorry. The easier ones do. The reason why I'm calling them 'easy' is because, once you move past the top five or so, the offer rates skyrocket to something at or above 70%. Hell, even Durham has a 60% offer rate. That's easy.

    A "lack of educational opportunities" maps near-perfectly into poverty (at least in the way in which it is defined nowadays, which is relative). You're saying the same thing with different words.
    Cambridge probably won't make a contextual offer. But they will take it into consideration to whether they give out an offer or not. Same with the top 5 for most respectable subjects e.g . Imperial for engineering.
