More Incredibly Good News on Admissions Front

More incredibly good news on college admissions

3 Incredibly Good News in 3 Consecutive Weeks
   Good News 1:  Harvard was ordered by court to provide 6 years of admissions data to "Students for Fair Admissions" for discovery.
   Good News 2:  Harvard Crimson's editorial board agreed virtually 100% with 80-20's petition.
   Good News 3: A virtual "smoking gun" of discrimination against AsAm students has emerged in a survey of college admissions directors.  35% of them admitted, indirectly but anonymously, to practicing discrimination against AsAms.

More About Good News 3

   Gallup poll and Inside Higher Ed jointly did a survey of 339 college admissions directors.  It reported yesterday (Sept. 22) that

   "... in a potentially notable finding, a significant minority of college admissions directors now say (in contrast to past surveys but consistent with the views of many advocates for Asian-American applicants) that their colleges generally admit only Asian applicants with higher grades and test scores than other applicants." (Emphasis added)

   See the following table published by the survey under the "Race and Admissions" subsection:

"Admissions Directors on Asian-American Applicants (emphasis added)
Public % Yes
Private % Yes
Do you believe that some colleges are holding Asian-American applicants to higher standards?
At your college, do Asian-American applicants who are admitted generally have higher grades and test scores than other applicants?
Have you signed 80-20's petition yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?

   Take pride in helping your children eliminate discrimination against them.

Q1:  What is so wise about 80-20's petition?

A:  It takes a middle of the road position. It sides with Harvard's desire to achieve diversity.  Diversity in Harvard's student body is Harvard's business.
   At the same time, the petition strongly opposes having AsAm applicants yielding 140 SAT points to white peers.  Not to be discriminated against is our business.  

Q2:  Why does 80-20 require $10 to sign the petition? 

A:  Winning against the Ivy League schools will be extremely difficult.  80-20 is not strong enough to win this fight, without your backing.  That is why we ask for $10 before anyone may sign the petition because the worth of "free signing ons" is nothing. If we can't get 100,000 signers, each contributing at least $10, by the end of 2017, 80-20 will withdraw from this fight.  All donations will be returned.
   BTW, all 80-20 Board members are volunteers.  They don't take a penny from donations to 80-20.  Quite to the contrary, they have given very generously of their time and money to 80-20 for years.  I have given 18 years of my life and at least $100,000 to 80-20.  Woo's Foundation has given another $75,000.

                  Go sign the petition now!  
              Not to accept discrimination against us is OUR BUSINESS!

 FORWARD THIS EMAIL to AsAms & urge them to sign this petition.
