College admissions in certain schools (particularly Harvard in this case) are about to get a whole lot more interesting. Sources tell the Wall Street Journal that the Trump Administration is reportedly preparing to “revoke the Obama-era guidelines that often suggested that colleges should use race as means to promote diversity and deeply diversify the pool of admissions at said college”.
Translation: Affirmative Action. Per the Journal, the Trump Administration feels that such situations (i.e Affirmative Action for example) run-a-muck of the law and therefore cannot be used via said guidelines in determining who should get into college and quite possibly how.
The move was apparently in the midst of a lawsuit that went on to federal court, because, it claims that Harvard discriminated against Asian-Americans trying to get into the school. Asian-American students claim that the school “limited” the number of Asians that were admitted, while, discreetly allowing large number of others.
Reps for the Ivy-League school denied the claims in phone calls to The Daily News when asked for comment but would not elaborate beyond that.
