12/4    "Some Asians' college strategy: Don't check 'Asian'" (
        "(Princeton sociologist) Espenshade found that Asian-Americans needed
        a 1550 SAT to have an equal chance of getting into an elite college as
        white students with a 1410 or black students with an 1100."
        \_ Cal has a race blind admission policy, but I wouldn't be too
           surprised if some of the elite private schools discriminated
           against Asians that way. They used to discriminate against Jews
           the same way. I wonder if he is removing the effect of "legacy
           admissions" or not. Private schools reserve about half of their
           admissions to children of graduates. How do you think someone
           like Dubya got into Yale?
           \_ "A look into Harvard’s admission policies in the 1990s showed
              that, after preferences for legacy students and athletes was
              removed, there was no discrimination against Asians based
              on race."
              So white kids get in through their parents, blacks via athletics
              and Asians have to compete on academic talent alone.
              \_ Where did this quote come from?  It's not in the article
                 \_ It is from a different article. Google for it.
        \_ note to self: must procreate with another race so my offsprings
           have a better chance of survival. Societal vigor =~ hybrid vigor.
