Professor questions UCLA admissions

LOS ANGELES According to the Orange County Register, professor Tim Groseclose stepped down after asking for data that could help prove illegal admissions and the school refused.

Groseclose said he was concerned because applicants often reveal their own race in the essay portion of the application.

University officials said admissions evaluators don't see the names, race or ethnicity of applicants.

California law bans public universities from using race as an admissions criteria.
