This has always been an interesting topic to me, and it's clearly one that matters to a lot of people. I've enjoyed reading everyone's feelings on this. I am currently an undergraduate admission counselor at a small college, so I have perhaps a different perspective than some. There's a great book called "Leveling the Playing Field: Justice and Politics in College Admissions" that I would really recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about affirmative action and what "merit" actually means.
