...this book at B&N today written by a Dartmouth/Duke? admissions officer. There was an entire chapter on minority admissions and how applications are given a red sticker for Hispanics, blue for Blacks, and a green for Native Americans. The book even described the case of one NA student with SAT scores of 530/520 CR/M and 600 writing, 490 Physics, and 500 math 1. The student was accepted by Dartmouth and the author even said that the student would be accepted at most of the Ivies because he displayed a competency for writing and had decent teacher recs despite his extremely low scores and 130/500 class rank.
I had a hard time believing what I read. This was written by an insider but for some reason I have strong doubts. Enlighten me, please.
