Some experts have criticized the Department of Justice over its recent announcement that Yale University “illegally discriminates” against Asian American and White applicants, claiming that the move must be politically-motivated.

Following a two-year investigation into Yale University’s undergraduate admissions process, the Department of Justice has deemed the practice to be discriminatory toward Asian and White students.
The DOJ’s findings: The investigation, which was based on a complaint by Asian American groups against Yale over its undergrad admissions process in 2016, found on Thursday that the Ivy League school violated Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Four years ago, 31-year old Noelle Hancock did what many of us wished we had the guts to do. She uprooted her comfortable Manhattan, New York life, turned down a $95,000-a-year job, and moved to the Caribbean to scoop ice cream at a local ice cream parlor. With several job offers at her feet and a degree from Yale University under her belt, Noelle sold all of her belongings and purchased a one-way ticket to the island of St. John.
