STANDING IN THE SCHOOLHOUSE DOOR: Harvard President Defiant in Admissions Fight.

Students for Fair Admissions, the group mounting the legal challenges, points to Harvard admissions practices that penalized Asian-American students by giving them low marks on such metrics as “likability,” “courage,” and “self-confidence.”
