Ivy League Chinese Discrimination

US Widens Princeton Bias Probe - Article in Today's Wall Street Journal.

I had mentioned the case in my time line of
Racism Against Chinese in the US. It shows the Chinese have finally arrived when they are filing noteworthy lawsuits. The suit alleges a white class mate of Mr. Li was admitted with a poorer academic record.

Mr. Li's qualifications are amazing:
  • Scored the maximum 2,400 on the SAT college admissions test
  • Registered a combined 2,390 -- 10 points below the maximum -- on three SAT2 subject tests, in physics, chemistry and calculus.
  • Admitted to Yale, and now attending Harvard.
And he was spurned by three Ivy League universities, as well as Stanford University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The quote from the original 2006 article I still agree with - Chinese are being treated as the Jews were in the 20's.
