Favorite comments of '10: Amy P and Joanne Jacobs on East Asians and creativity

(Skewing college admissions)

Amy P

"...they virtually eliminated the admissions edge enjoyed by some ethnic groups."

I think this is what it's really all about. He's afraid of having a campus with too many quiet, introverted East Asians, so they want to put a finger on the scale to keep their numbers down.

Joanne Jacobs

If writing a "creative" story based on a goofy prompt becomes part of college admissions, then super-striving, high-achieving Asian-American students will learn how to write "creative" stories based on goofy prompts.
