US: Princeton Didn’t Discriminate Against Asian Applicants

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — The federal Department of Education has declared that Princeton University does not discriminate against Asian and Asian-American applicants.

The university on Wednesday released a letter dated Sept. 9 from the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights.

The office investigated Princeton in response to two rejected applicants’ claims that the Ivy League university was discriminating on the basis of race and national origin.

It found that the university uses race and national origin in its admissions considerations but as two of many factors. The office says Princeton did not subject members of any group to different admissions standards than others and never assessed the demographics of the classes it was building.

Princeton accepts only about 10 percent of those who apply to go there for their undergraduate educations.
