SFFA said that according to a Duke University professor's analysis, Harvard's personal ratings tend to take care of African-American and Latino students, suppressing Asian students, and many students who are not as qualified as Asian-American students are admitted. Their outstanding Asians have fallen.
But Harvard claims that the number of Asian students recruited by Harvard has increased significantly since the 1980s and has steadily increased in recent years.
On the other hand, Harvard also defended the alumni admission principles of the school in court, refuting previous comments that they had prioritized the recruitment of alumni and donor children.
