On Wednesday, December 9, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments for the second time in Fisher v. University of Texas, a case that could have widespread repercussions for race-based admissions policies at U.S. colleges and universities. The circumstances behind the case revolve around Abigail Fisher's 2008 rejection by The University of Texas-Austin (UT), a determination that Ms. Fisher claims was reached only because she is Caucasian. This post examines potential outcomes of the case and what impact the Court's decision could have on college admissions in the future.
