HARVARD DOES NOT USE RACIAL QUOTAS

admin

In the coming weeks, we’re going to be highlighting some portions of the decision reached in the Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard University case as Judge Allison Burroughs’ 130-page decision abounds in interesting conclusions — and, frankly, fodder about the highly selective college admissions process. Today, we wanted to shine a spotlight on the conclusion reached by the court that Harvard does not use racial quotas in the admissions process. In spite of a number of loud voices who have, over the years, claimed Harvard uses quotas in admissions to discriminate against Asian American applicants, we have long asserted that the school — while we believe it sure does discriminate against Asian American applicants — does not use racial quotas nor does any other highly selective college.
