前哈佛面試官分析 ACA 5 法案的影響

Currently (June 12), ACA-5 still needs to pass the California Senate and be placed on the November ballot, but if passed, it will remove the wording of Prop 209, which banned the usage of affirmative action in California schools. This means that the UC and CSU systems will be implementing affirmative action in their admissions process, but private schools in California will not be affected. Further, the law may take some time to go into effect. Even if the school systems choose to expedite the implementation, the earliest it would take effect is Fall 2021. While the amount of spots available to Asian students will likely decline, it won’t be as dramatic as you might think. We project that it will likely land in the range 33-38% instead of 40%. 

Therefore, as long as you are still competitive, you can still be accepted into the top UC’s. To improve their chances, Asian students should seek to strengthen their overall profiles, including leadership, volunteering, activities and rely less on test scores and GPA’s. They should also make sure to have customized strategies and thoroughly understand the UC 14 factors. HS2 counselors are very familiar with these practices, with some having even served as UC admissions readers. 

目前 (6月12日),ACA-5仍需在加州參議院通過,並在11月進行最後投票表決,但如果它獲得通過,加州政府將刪除之前的209號提案,該提案禁止在加州學校在錄取學生時使用平權行動。這意味著日後UC加州大學和CSU加州州立大學系統將在招生過程中依照加州的人口比例實施平權法案,但加州的私立大學並不會受到影響。此外,該法律可能需要一段時間才能生效。即使學校選擇加快實施,最早也要到2021年秋季才會生效。儘管對於亞裔學生的錄取名額可能會減少,但不會像你想象的那樣急劇下降。我們預計亞裔學生比例可能會在33-38%之間,而不再是原來的40%
