But a lawsuit that accused Harvard of discriminating against Asian American applicants changed his mind.
It’s a question that comes after a federal judge ruled this fall that Harvard does not discriminate against Asian American applicants.
Brian Taylor, managing director of Ivy Coach, a college admissions consulting firm, said he believes Asian American applicants are discriminated against — though not because of race.
“It’s not like Asian Americans are less personable than are people of any other race,” he said.
“If you’re going to make the argument against Asian American discrimination, don’t present a profile that makes you a stereotype,” he said.
