According to this article, "students whose parents' incomes are in the middle attended Ivy-plus colleges at rates much lower than the average, between 4.4 percent and 4.7 percent. This means that middle-class students are underrepresented at elite colleges, and the report refers to them as the 'missing middle.'" Obviously the problem is the large number of people at the lowest income level. At least, that's the interpretation you get if you read between the lines: "middle-class students attend elite institutions at rates lower than students from the lowest income quintile."
