    Should top colleges restrict the number of Asian-American students that they accept?

    It's been on the news that Asian-American students are trying not to show their ethnicity on the applications because top colleges are restricting the number of Asian Americans that they accept because too many have high SAT scores, high school GPA scores, and advanced study credits.

    I don’t think so.  To me, it’s just another form of discrimination.  They worked hard to achieve the grades and scores they have.  Other peoples are rewarded with acceptance for hard work and good scores, why should they not be?

    Why would a college not want students with high scores? And this practice is definitely a return to segregated races.

    No school entrance should be merit based across the board in my opinion.

    It is not the entrance of some students to particular schools that keeps the vast majority of college age students that want to go to college from not being able to attend some institution.  The funding through loans and the overall costs from the universities are whats limiting many today, with prices as high as they are it makes school intimidating to go into for many that are not sure how they could ever pay off the debt that will be created for an education.

    Race should have nothing to do with college entrance whatsoever.  Period.  That includes everyone.

    No, are they practicing a covert form of racism?

    Colleges are a business, and image is part of any business.  If a campus accepts only students with SAT scores of 2400, 4.0 GPAs, and the only qualifying students happen to be Americans with Asian descent, then the image of an all Asian American campus would not look very good for a U.S. business.  Likewise for an all German American campus, and an all African American campus.  So, the business may have to adapt to the times and accept lower SAT scoring, lower GPA scores of students who don't happen to be Americans with Asian descent.  It is a shame that race is still such a devisive issue in 2012.  I cannot wait for the day when all races are intermingled and we all speak five different languages that are taught to us by our maternal and paternal grandmothers and grandfathers.
