My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


I Love Answers

Last night I framed the discussion about Affirmative Action, and then posed the question within that framework "Does It Work?"

Well, none other than Linda Seebach of the Rocky answered me: NO. She cited research by Bok and Bowen that provides the numbers, which I have yet to track down myself. Nonetheless, her memory was that "special considerations cases" flunked out of highly selective colleges at a rate three times that of their counterparts, and had very poor prospects for advanced degrees.

I will be tracking this down myself in the days to come. But its pretty cool to get an answer from someone tuned in.
