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.
