Maybe so, but does that mean that if the first 10% (or portion thereof) decide not to attend, they will drop down to the next 10% group?
No. It only means that there will be more classroom space and that then other's (like those Whites complaining about their children not being "automatically" admitted) can fill up those empty spaces as available.
The legacy issue, esepcially at UT schools is a big thing here in Texas. Many parents want their children to follow in their footsteps ... and many children want to do so. The article above didn't state it, but the guy whose son was banished to the University of Colorado ... his kid probably didn't have the grades to get into UT, but would have gotten in anyway ... as some kind of "rite of passage" thing.
