maybe he/shes a urm.  Diversity gets diff criteria for wl pulls at a lot of schools.  if a school's population is lacking say latinos, then they will go to the wl and pull someone that will bring up the school's medians for that particular diversity.  Schools wont admit they do this, but they do.

This whole system is ridiculously unpredictable and cruel. So much for soft factors.

OTOH...even though affirmative action in admission by giving bonus' to students in admission for their ethnicity has been upheld....having direct quotas has been rejected (the 2003 SCOTUS affirmative action cases isseud together)..so if they do exactly what you said it would be unconstitutional.
