Abstract

College admission is highly related to senior high school students, which would have a great influence on students’ whole lives. Therefore, equality in college admission is important. In this paper, the author applied the research methods of quantitative research, qualitative research, analytical research, conclusive research, surveys, and case studies to find out the existence of inequality in the Harvard Administration and offer suggestions and solutions at the end of the paper. According to the research and analysis, the paper concludes that the disparity is ghastly enough to exist in the progress of the admission examinations for Harvard University. Such a conclusion may also apply to the decisions of other admission offices of famous universities. Therefore, the Civil Rights Movement in the US is still far away from obtaining victory, where everyone could live in actual equality.
