Racial admission rate is usually almost the same as the division in the applicant pool/public, not sure which.
If Asian Americans are 25% of the Applicant pool and 14% of the Incoming Class, then the admission rate will be near 3.2%, while the overall rate is 5.7%.
Are Indian subcontinents considered in the same pool as Asian Americans? is it easier or harder for an Indian subcontinent to get into HYPD & such schools than it is a "true" Asian ?
You aren't factoring yield. Harvard's is like 75% or so. Don't know what racial variations would be, if there were any.
I would imagine that it is extraordinarily difficult for a subcontinent to gain admission to a university. Bright side is, I bet they're underrepresented.
The affirmative action suppresses asian american admissions.
Just look at the Yale number (Fall 2009) ... 69% white, 14% asian american, 9% african american, 8% Hispanic ... I wouldn't be surprised if the proportion of applicants is more than double the proportion of this incoming class for asian americans.
