Admissions Preferences

According to this Bloomberg story, Americans of Asian ancestry are finding it harder than ever to get into top California universities because school administrators have decided to admit large numbers of foreign students who are Asian (especially Chinese).

This is very hard to square with the supposed need for more diversity (which is why “overrepresented” students of Korean, Japanese, Chinese or other Asian groups have evidently run into ceilings that keep them out, despite superb academic records), but easy to square with the desire on the part of officials to maximize revenues.
