The Asian Ceiling, Or
Elite schools, in the US, may permit
more than around 50% of its incoming Freshman classes to be white but not to be Asian.
NOTE, added after publishing: This is generally speaking and a note about the actual existence of what is called an Asian ceiling—that more qualified Asian students apply to elite universities and colleges in the US than the schools will accept. The schools require much higher standards for entrance for Asians than for white students. The schools all have many more white students than Asian students by design. It’s a well-known problem and sociologists debate its fairness. It’s therefore a sign of generally acceptable white privilege in the United States. If you want actual stats, you can find them by searching for the school of your choice and the word “diversity”. Most elite schools publish annual stats. Yale, for example, had 58% white and 19.8% Asian students enter its Class of 2015 last year. Overall Yale has a 42% white population. However, 17% of its students claim “unknown” as their identity. So, 42% is most certainly low. It’d be great to see how many Asians applied and were rejected and compare to how many whites applie and were rejected, but that data is much more difficult to obtain. Maybe a phone call to The Registrar, followed by an email. Every school has access to this data. (Over 27,000 applied for Class of 2015 and only 1,351 were accepted. Very elite.)
You all should know I don’t post made up bullshit on dagSeoul. Before coming to me with complaints, look some shit up for yourself. I don’t like being The Authority on shit. Sometimes, I like posting a sentence or two rather than an essay.
Shits and giggles.
