Edward Blum filed a lawsuit against Harvard University based on the accusation that the university's affirmative action policies discriminate against Asians who often are rejected despite producing higher test scores and grade-point averages than black and Hispanic students who are accepted. While the average Asian American applicant needed a much higher 1460 SAT score to be admitted, a white student with similar GPA and other qualifications only needed a score of 1320, while blacks needed 1010 and Hispanics 1190. These statements are used in the lawsuit as a prime piece of evidence and they originate from a 2009 study conducted by Princeton sociologists. That study can be found here: http://press.princeton.edu/titles/9072.html Harvard's general counsel, Robert Juliano states, "The College considers each applicant through an individualized, holistic review having the goal of creating a vibrant academic community that exposes students to a wide-range of differences: background, ideas, experiences, talents and aspirations." I am not sure what to think in this situation. Affirmative action is a tricky situation and I am not sure what to think when minorities are affect by it. What is your stance?
