Thoughtful Piece on Admissions Preferences

Charlotte Allen in the Washington Times writing about the investigation into college admissions preferences. I wish I shared her assumption that the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is out to discover the actual facts. I still don't understand why the commission didn't select the College of William & Mary. Here's a public university where the director of admissions has openly embraced gender preferences..."We're not called the College of Mary and Mary," he once said. And yet it didn't make the list, in spite of being in the same geographic range of the others on the list.
