Harvard class of 2022.
It's possible that some students belong to more than one of these categories and, presumably, some would have been admitted without membership in one of the categories, but a more meaningful analysis would reveal the percentage of students who would not be part of the class if not for their category membership.
What's also hidden from view is the advantage accrued by students whose parents paid a fortune for daily tutoring, SAT/ACT prep and application coaches. I've known parents who've spent $100k or more on such assistance. Without a doubt, it made the difference between admission to a top tier school and a middle-of-the-pack institution.
And how many students have had a university presidents visit their home while they're in the process of applying to college? I know of two such cases, both of which involved wealthy parents who are big donors. Maybe they're represented in the "Dean or Director's Interest List" category.
So as the Trump administration launches attacks on racial diversity as a consideration in college admissions, we should not leave consideration of the above categories out of discussions of fairness and merit in admissions. By the way, 6% of the student population identifies black or African American, 10% Hispanic or Latino.
