No discrimination against Asian students


The Federal Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights says there is no evidence that Princeton University discriminates against Asian and Asian-American applicants. One claim has come from a student originally from China who was wait-listed in 2006, while, they said, applicants of with similar credentials were accepted. The other is from the parents of a student of Indian descent who was rejected in 2010, who have asserted the university discriminated generally against Asian and Indian applicants. The Office found that that the university uses race and national origin in its admissions considerations as two of many factors, but that the university did not subject members of any group to different admissions standards than others. The university says that having perfect SAT scores and being valedictorian of a high school class does not guarantee admission to the school.
