Kai NipStudents have largely criticized the Department of Justice’s Thursday move to sue Yale over alleged discrimination against Asian American and white applicants.
“White people and Asian American people are overrepresented in higher education and the Ivy League in particular,” Irene Vazquez ’21 told the News.

Of the lawsuit, Jenkins said that it was “predictable” in light of the similar admissions lawsuit against Harvard.
