Disturbing New Trend?



Text  



A professor acquaintance of mine sees a trend toward college applications suggesting “optional photographs.” Is this a way to make sure that “diversity” students look, uh, diverse enough? I couldn’t think of an innocent explanation (Emory gamely suggests that it “makes the process more human”). He included a quick google:

-Columbia

-Hampden-Sydney.

-U. of Florida Medical School (minority program).

-Emory (“makes the process more human”).
