«One benefit of disclosure might be to dissuade universities from using double standards so blatant -- whether for legacies, athletes, or racial minorities -- as to offend voters. A second benefit might be to focus attention on the real crisis in minority education: The average black 17-year-old is academically less prepared for college than the average white or Asian 8th-grader. A third benefit might be to shame elite universities into seeking more needy and working-class students, who are far more underrepresented than blacks and Hispanics. Such "economic preferences" are widely popular because -- if carefully designed -- they are consistent with traditional concepts of merit. The hope is that the hard work and raw talent of the best of these needy students will enable them to catch up with college classmates from more-prosperous backgrounds and better high schools.»
When I establish Torgo Imperial University (probably on the smoking ruins of something-or-other or someone-or-other), I will take a hint from Zim and admit slave/students based on one criterion: absorbency.
