Bloomberg – The U.S. claims Yale violates federal civil rights law by making race and national origin “the determinative factor” in hundreds of admissions decisions each year, fostering “stereotypes, bitterness and division.”

The U.S. said Asian-American and White applicants have only one-tenth to one-fourth the chance of being admitted as African-Americans with comparable academic credentials, and accused Yale of “unlawfully dividing Americans into racial and ethnic blocs.” Critics of the government’s move say the U.S. may have targeted Yale after Harvard defeated similar claims.
