University of Maryland, College Park

Expert on the Harvard case, race, diversity, and affirmative action

"Admissions is unpredictable. SFFA wants people to think that Harvard is discriminating when in reality, it's just that Harvard admits under 5% of students. Many strong students will be rejected, even with excellent grades and test scores."

 

Harvard University

Expert on Asian-American achievement, affirmative action

"I can comment on the issue of Asian American achievement, how students on the Harvard campus think about affirmative action, and how to think about the question of Asian American discrimination alongside affirmative action."
