So you want to get into Harvard?

Well recently the Harvard Crimson was forced to release undergraduate admissions data as part of the current discrimination lawsuit headed for the Supreme Court.

This chart shows admittance percentages to the Ivy League school between 2014 and 2019.

The horizontal axis shows academic potential on a 1 to 10 scale, with color coded dots corresponding to admittance rates of Black, Hispanic, White, and Asian applicants.

Steve Sailer notes: 

Strikingly, over 40% of Blacks in the top two academic deciles still get rejected.

As you can see, Black and Hispanic applicants are far more likely to get accepted, even with far lower academic potential.

Should you find yourself in the 5th decile of academic potential as a White undergrad, landing you just below average among Harvard applicants, here’s how you would fare against other races:

  • Although Black students naturally comprise a lesser number of applicants, the data shows that  Harvard still offered admission to more Blacks in the 5th decile than Whites, at a ratio of nearly 9 to 1 (8.7). Keep in mind, this data is from before the Racial Reckoning spurred by the death of George Floyd.
  • Hispanics beat White applicants at a ratio of nearly 4 to 1.
  • And Asians, making up the largest minority group of applicants, would be accepted at a ratio of 0.7 to 1.
