Why have these two groups been subject to restricted entry?
College admissions lawsuits have brought out another form of discrimination against Asians and Asian Americans who have been denied entry because of quota restrictions at some highly ranked schools. Substitute “Jews” for “Asians” and “Asian-Americans,” and you have replicated a policy that was common in many universities only a few decades ago.
Why have these two groups been subject to restricted entry? Should universities try to build their student bodies on the basis of proportionate population? Does that mean if 10 percent of Americans are of Mexican descent, they should have 10 percent of the slots at competitive schools? Is there ever any basis for schools to discriminate in enrollment? If so, what are legitimate discriminating factors? Age? Standardized test scores?
Quality of high school attended? Letters of recommendation?
