"Holistic" College Admissions

...which may be another name for a back-door affirmative action program.

The University of Washington's new criteria will include factors such as applicants overcoming "personal or social adversity."

Have a good sob story or have a single parent, go to college, regardless of grades or test scores. But if you are a high-achieving high schooler who comes from a traditional two-parent family, you had an unfair advantage and just might not deserve college admission.
