Since everyone else is talking about the Affirmative Action case today, I thought I could chip in my two cents. Before going to law school I worked in the admissions office at Princeton University for two years. Here's a short piece I wrote about Affirmative Action based on that experience. The gist is that Affirmative Action is the least offensive thing that happens in a university admissions department; it affects fewer people than you think and (contra Justice Thomas) causes fewer harms.
Also, if any of you have high school aged kids, I'm more than happy to read their application essays.
