Harvard University, still hailed by many as one of the nation’s premier universities, has taken strides in recent years to shed that distinction. It has implemented different SAT score cutoffs based on race and sex and punished a Christian student group for daring to pressure a female member to resign following her decision to date another woman.
And now, Harvard has welcomed one of America’s lowest-information individuals to its ivy-covered folds. If you haven’t already guessed, it is Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School graduate David Hogg.
David’s mom shared the incredible news this week after her son finally allowed her to spread the word. As you can imagine, she’s super proud and said she’s excited for David’s bright future! [Emphasis added]
Incredible doesn’t begin to describe it. As The College Fix notes in a tweet:
David Hogg is heading to Harvard despite an SAT score of 1270. The bottom 25% at Harvard have an average SAT score of 1460. https://t.co/7dXFxmJjpw

The news will come as an even greater shock to the myriads of Asian Americans with 1600 SATs who have become personae non grata at the fabled institution.
So what prompted the admissions people at Harvard to overlook Hogg’s sub-par test scores? Was it his recommendation that health warning labels be mandated for all guns or his advice that we as a nation should “go after the sources of evil, not those perpetrating it”?
I’m sure Harvard has its reasons.
More’s the pity.
