While I can definitely see how TO policies can help some highly selective schools with diversity goals, through SCOIR at my kid’s very affluent high school I’ve been able to see that quite a few white kids were admitted to some of these schools with low test scores that I am certain they didn’t submit. I know these families personally and these kids weren’t recruits but did have strong grades but mediocre test scores significantly less than bottom 25% test scores for those schools.
