New Medical School Admissions Data, “Not a Chinaman's chance" in 21th Century

Dear Fellow Asian Americans:

Speak up! Take this SURVEY by 80-20 Education Foundation to project your voice to the
Supreme Court! Pass the words.

80-20 will present the result to the Supreme Court and elected officials to advocate YOUR
choice. 7000 Asian Americans have spoken in 2 days, voted 39:1 FOR a race-neutral,
merit-based college admission.

Why care?

American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) has just released the 2009-2011 data.

The MAGNITUDE of racial preferences in medical schools admission is jarringly apparent:
For applicants with the average GPA and MCAT scores, Asian Americans will get 1/3rd the
chance of comparable blacks. The ratio drops to 1/8th if you are below average. You will get a
proverbial "Chinaman's chance" of success, which is a 19th century notion carrying all the way
into the 21th century, thanks to our collective inaction.

The schools call this "a celebration of diversity" and describe the use of racial preferences as "a
nudge factor" or "a tie breaker". Does the data support the claim? As Chief Justice John
Roberts wrote in 2007, "Racial balancing is not transformed from 'patently unconstitutional'
to a compelling state interest simply by relabeling it "racial diversity'". Asian Americans
should not be shoved into a rotten deal with neither our consent nor the benefit of
QUANTITATIVE data showing the magnitude of the problem. Let's call a spade a spade before
an honest debate can start.
