Duke University (2011): 31%
Northwestern University (2011): 35%
Cornell University (2011): 49%
Georgetown University: 22%
Based on these numbers, it appears to me that there is some correlation between the conservative nature of a school and minorities not wanting to attend. Why do Northwestern and Cornell have a significantly higher percentage of minorities than the better schools of University of Virginia and the University of Chicago? I visited the University of Chicago a few years ago; I did not get a good vibe. Its not a school I am too excited about applying to. I phrased the poll question the way I did, because I was trying to be politically correct. I did not want to flat out ask: Which T-14 school has the most racist culture?
Very helpful stats. It's good to know that Michigan is more conservative than Duke. And NYU is more conservative than Penn.
