To the editors:
The reason why Asians appear “underrepresented” in elite college admissions is because they are in fact overrepresented. Although they only comprise 4.5 percent of the US population, they comprise nearly 20-30 percent of top colleges’ students. To correct for this over-representation, and maybe their societal advantage in gaining access to higher level secondary education, colleges are now admitting a lower percentage of Asians.
