Fisher Felt She Deserved Admission

High school students like Fisher, who weren’t in the top 10 percent, could still be admitted to the University of Texas through a process that views students overall involvement in leadership roles, family circumstances, GPA and SAT scores and race. Besides having a 3.59 GPA, she was in the top 12 percent of her class, competed in math and orchestra competitions and volunteered for Habitat for Humanity. (Photo: MATT SMITH/Express-Times /Landov)
