“some schools aren’t even remotely subtle about their motivations”
It’s like the campus left doesn’t even know how to operate without this policy. They cannot let it go.
The New York Post reports:
How colleges brazenly get around Supreme Court’s affirmative action ruling
Now that race-based affirmative action in college admissions has been overturned in a landmark Supreme Court decision, colleges, and universities are scrambling to diversify their student bodies without running afoul of civil rights law.
Several top-ranked schools are rolling out a slew of new essay prompts that fish for demographic information with leading questions — and some are going so far as to directly ask about prospective students’ race.
Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore asks students to “tell us about an aspect of your identity (e.g. race, gender, sexuality, religion, community, etc.) or a life experience that has shaped you as an individual…”
Meanwhile, Rice University in Houston asks applicants: “What perspectives shaped by your background, experiences, upbringing, and/or racial identity inspire you to join our community of change agents at Rice?”
And every single Ivy League school has added an application question about students’ backgrounds, according to college admission expert and Ivy Coach managing partner Brian Taylor.
It’s a clever loophole: ask about race … without expressly requiring students to write about their race.
And some schools aren’t even remotely subtle about their motivations.
