Asian Americans, European White Americans, and the College Admissions Game Issue Brief

Zovickian, Haley Lucille; Smith, Raymond Arthur

My issue brief investigates publically denied but clearly implicit racial quotas that Asian Americans are subject to in elite private university admissions, particularly in Ivy League schools. Such discrimination not only favors the admission of white applicants, particularly children of alumni, but also is misrepresentative of Asian academic achievement and the cultural and historical heterogeneity of individual Asian ethnic groups.
