There is far too much text before the table of contents. To whoever wrote it... please break it down! Reaganaut 11:44, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

  • I've edited this about a half dozen times, and I think it finally makes some sense, though it's still a bit partisan (I plan on working on that more later). I can't think of a good way to break it down. Isn't there a wiki-command for moving the ToC to the top of the article? Absentminded 12:36, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

Moved "Equal billing vs. separate identity" section to new article Complaints about Barnard. --Nonsensical 12:01, 19 June 2007 (EDT)

NPOV Dispute

This is a page that's really important to keep as factual as possible and not promote any sort of agenda of what Barnard should do.

Selectivity Section

"there is no evidence of any discrepancy in performance of Barnard students when enrolled in Columbia University classes."

This is obviously an argument against the prior hypotheses, but takes the form of an argument from ignorance. Ironically, it cites no evidence for the positive claim "there is no evidence." Contentious issues should cite evidence or remain neutral.
