The Asian American Coalition for Education has filed a complaint with the Department of Education requesting that they investigate Harvard admissions.

A group of individuals is running for Harvard's Board of Overseers with the platform of making Harvard admissions more fair. The candidates are Ralph Nader, Ron Unz, Stephen Hsu, Stuart Taylor, and Lee Cheng. Article

One of the few schools with race-blind admissions is Caltech, and it is reflected by the fact that they have the best SAT scores.

Article

The Asian American Coalition for Education has filed a complaint with the Department of Education requesting that they investigate Harvard admissions.

A group of individuals is running for Harvard's Board of Overseers with the platform of making Harvard admissions more fair. The candidates are Ralph Nader, Ron Unz, Stephen Hsu, Stuart Taylor, and Lee Cheng. Article

One of the few schools with race-blind admissions is Caltech, and it is reflected by the fact that they have the best SAT scores.
