"Indeed, MIT could have reasons outside of race or sex to hire or admit a minority over a nonminority, with all else (e.g. test scores or publications) being equal. Perhaps the minority candidate had better personal qualities, overcame greater adversity, or showed more potential. Such decisions transcend objective measures; indeed, they require examination of qualities and context. After all, rewarding great success despite great hardship is the essence of meritocracy."
