Lee has been a member of the 13-person Harvard Corporation since 2010. He is also a partner at WilmerHale, the law firm representing the University in the lawsuit.
With red lanyards around their necks, nearly 1,400 prospective members of Harvard’s Class of 2022 explored campus during the 2018 iteration of Visitas.
The closure comes shortly after the initiative announced new restrictions for the spring 2018 semester.
Lee's criticism comes on the heels of the Justice Department’s Friday filing, in which the federal agency argued for the unsealing of data related to Harvard's admissions process.
A small portion of redacted Harvard admissions data—including applicants’ files and internal correspondence between admissions officers—will likely soon become public.
MIT, Stanford, and every member of the Ivy League, with the exception of Yale, set record-low rates for admission to the Class of 2022.
The Department of Justice called for the unsealing of admissions data Harvard has repeatedly argued should remain private in an amicus brief the department filed Friday.
Students for Fair Admissions cited strong public interest and a “strong presumption of public access” in the case, claiming both considerations outweigh Harvard’s stated need for privacy.
A record-low 4.59 percent of applicants to Harvard College’s Class of 2022 received offers of admission this year, prompting shock and excitement from admits.
These changes come in light of increasing interest from the student body; the number of student requests to participate in the program rose between fall 2016 and fall 2017.
The College offered 1,962 of 42,749 applicants spots in the Class of 2022. This year marks the first time Harvard’s admission rate has ever dipped below 5 percent.
The cost of attendance for Harvard College will be $67,580 for the 2018-2019 academic year, an increase of about 3 percent—or $1,971—from the previous year.
Allison D. Burroughs, a U.S. district court judge who is hearing the case in Boston, laid out a timeline for forthcoming stages of the lawsuit.
Harvard College will no longer require applicants to submit scores from the optional writing portions of the ACT and SAT beginning with the Class of 2023.
A pending lawsuit alleging Harvard’s admissions policies discriminate against Asian Americans may go to trial as early as July, according to a Friday case filing.
