I refer you to my above post. I edited it in response to your own editing.
A few additions:

I still am not convinced that this packet is at best neutral.

Dude, the letter makes dozens of references to diversity status. It is the damn point. The scores establish candidacy and that is why within these groups people with lower scores were not sent them. Is it really that inconceivable that Yale would want to foster diversity? I'm guessing you did not get this letter, mostly because you keep referring to it as an email and because the fact that it was sent to recruit minority students is so overwhelmingly obvious.

You are really missing the point here. I was disagreeing with anyone who said that the dean would not give an application a full review. Nowhere did I say that this letter thereby gives the person an extra full review.
