The Harvard trial wrapped up on Nov. 2. And for the past three weeks, the group Students for Fair Admissions has argued that the Ivy League school discriminates against Asian-American applicants. In a court filing, conservative advocates called Harvard's race-sensitive admissions process "racially and ethnically discriminatory."
