[ - ] OP of the previous post about college admissions. One thing I find very telling is that when you look at the students in NYC who were National Merit Semi-finalists (which means they received the top scores on an unbiased standardized test), you will find that most private school students did not have high % of semi-finalists. In a fair and unbiased test, all those years of privileged, expensive, elite education and most of the students weren't smart enough to get top scores. But I'm certain many of them will go to top colleges anyway, since when you are talking about rich white students, "scores" are less important than those other so-called qualities that demonstrate "merit" that allows them to feel that their child deserves their spot in an elite school over students with higher standardized test scores. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

you're absolutely correct. a switch towards SAT score only (ideally with some writing component!) would likely produce a crop of LMC-UMC hungry immigrants, Asian students, and some Jews. There would, I would imagine, be a dearth of Black/Hispanic students due to broader structural issues... hence the controversy. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I think it would also be fair to give points based on how crappy the high school you attend is. So students who have had 13 years of privileged education need to score HIGHER (no matter what their race) than students in an inner city failing school -- much higher. And students in a decent public school have to score higher, but not as high as the tt private school students. Because if the 13 years of private education only results in your kid scoring the same as the kid in the mediocre public school, then obviously your kid is not very smart and doesn't deserve a spot at HYP.

My advice for going into academia is: if you go for it, go for it all the way. Dive in. To be successful and land a tenure-track position at a good school (instead of being stuck in adjunct land) you need to be pretty badass. That said, it's totally doable! You can be a mediocre lawyer (or probably most other careers as well), but if you're a mediocre academic your job is much less secure. [ Reply | More ]

It is all about being consistent in the standards you want colleges to follow. Not one standard for minorities, and another for white kids. Either SAT scores are all-important, or they aren't. But don't pretend that they aren't important when comparing your dc to a kid with higher scores, but they are important when comparing your dc to a kid with lower scores! [ Reply | More ]

1. SAT by SES. 2. GPA (normalized against school mean and weighted by difficulty of courseload). 3. timed essay done in a testing center to ensure that students can write their way out of a paper bag. [ Reply | More ]

I don't believe that this is true. Some black and Hispanic students could surely get in. But if not, so be it. [ Reply | More ]

Unfortunately, no, you are wrong. Read the article. It was written by blacks. And the article says black scores are so low that the wealthiest and most educated blacks have children that do worse than the average white. Your plan is silly in light of this data [ Reply | More ]

if they are so horrible, chances are those parents are emphasizing sports instead of education the way Asian parents do. the key is to improve parental skills, not to lower the level of American universities so that they lose their top position in the world. [ Reply | More ]

OP: If you ask me, the SAT scores of white students who attend tt private schools for 13 years should be HIGHER than other students in order to get admitted to HYP! I mean, these kids have been given their extra special education for 13 years, in small classes with dedicated teachers, and if they can't score higher on the SATs than middle class or poor kids, those rich kids don't deserve admission. Agree? [ Reply | More ]

Your plan hurts blacks at the TT. Did you watch American Promise? Blacks at TT privates have lower scores and would never get in to Hyp under your plan. racist [ Reply | More ]

I do, yes. But isn't that basically the case? My understanding is that the reason applications ask what degrees parents have and where they obtained them is so they know how high to raise the bar. Kids get bonus points for being the first in the family to attend college. [ Reply | More ]

you're right, first gen status is becoming more significant. My guess is that colleges are preparing for the eventuality that affirmative action will be thrown out by the courts. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I think first generation status is a good idea, but it should be looked at closely. Having a parent who attended a community college should get more points than one who attended an Ivy. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I wouldn't mind having a discussion with you about this, but your choice of language makes me doubt it is worthwhile. If you have an objection, try to state it without using profanity, or at least the kind of language that I teach my dcs they should not use (and I hope you do, too). My point is that colleges always take other criteria into account. So pretending affirmative action is evil and other criteria, which were used for generations to keep down the number of Jews, are okay, is hypocritical. Do you agree or not? [ Reply | More ]
