Asian groups allege Harvard discriminates against them in admissions [View all]

"The complaint, filed by a coalition of 64 organizations, says the university has set quotas to keep the numbers of Asian-American students significantly lower than the quality of their applications merits. It cites third-party academic research on the SAT exam showing that Asian-Americans have to score on average about 140 points higher than white students, 270 points higher than Hispanic students and 450 points higher than African-American students to equal their chances of gaining admission to Harvard. The exam is scored on a 2400-point scale."

They can't just base admissions on test scores and GPA, Harvard would be 80% Asian. They have to look at the best and brightest from each group, not across the board, in order to promote any shred of diversity.
