For Asian Americans, a changing landscape on college admissions
The original purpose of college admission tests was to restrict Jewish access to the Ivys and still appear fair; that didn't work, so now they're using "diversity" as an excuse to penalize and reward people based on race. I'm not too worried since studies show that peer groups of like intelligence have the same earning potential no matter what college they get into. I'm also not that angry since the vast majority of asians vote and support this type of nonsense. This practice does show that the liberal elites running these colleges are racist.Lee's next slide shows three columns of numbers from a Princeton University study that tried to measure how race and ethnicity affect admissions by using SAT scores as a benchmark. It uses the term “bonus” to describe how many extra SAT points an applicant's race is worth. She points to the first column.
African Americans received a “bonus” of 230 points, Lee says.
She points to the second column.
“Hispanics received a bonus of 185 points.”
The last column draws gasps.
Asian Americans, Lee says, are penalized by 50 points — in other words, they had to do that much better to win admission.
