Of course that would never happen if they used the Harvard selection system (emails below). However, this issue raises two simple questions:
-Are Japanese women smarter than Japanese men or are women in general more skilled than men regarding such tests ?
-Does it make any sense that the selection of candidates to a medical school (in an Artificial Intelligence-AI era) is made like it was in 1918?

Assuming that those that now enter a medical school will only attain the expert level by 2028 it would be interesting to forecast what will be state of the art of AI based medicine by then. Below an interesting statement made one year ago:
“So perhaps one of the most powerful effects of artificial intelligence will be, perversely, to make healthcare more human and personal...This has profound implications for medical training and what defines a leading clinician. It will be those who can harness AI to their own medical knowledge and their human skills of context and empathy who will be the leaders of their profession.”[/color] https://www.theguardian.com/healthcare- ... lationship

Assunto: Harvard sued for descrimination against Asian American applicants

https://www.boston.com/news/education/2 ... on-lawsuit

The article is very informative and it even mention that Harvard University receives 500 million USD/year of federal funding, which constitutes a new definition for private universities. A more detailed view can be found on the New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/29/us/h ... icans.html

The moment that Harvard let legacy to hit as much as one-third of admissions it sold the rope for this hanging lawsuit

Assunto: The tenure system and the price of ethics

My email of 31 of December below was just a poor telegraphic comment if compared to the powerful statement made by a professor at the University of Notre Dame and published in January 9 in the Chronicle of Higher Education. One of the dozens of comments made about it says it all "Yours is perhaps the most thoughtful and relevant article that I have read in the Chronicle in a decade".

Still my poor email and Prof. Smith interesting article share a common position concerning the nature of the tenure system. Be there as it may I must say that I strongly disagree on his comment about “third-tier universities”. An unfortunate comment that in my opinion diminishes the value of his important article. Especially because in US is possible to get into first-tier universities depending only on money or family status. The children of the Rich and Powerful alumni, https://www.amazon.com/Price-Admission- ... 1400097975 the so-called Legacy, that can reach as much as 30% in Harvard University https://www.cnbc.com/2017/09/06/harvards-incoming-class-is-one-third-legacy.html which is a reason why private first-tier US universities are also part of the problems of this world by reproducing social inequalities including of the racist type while putting a price on ethics. Because its rather obvious that they can´t keep the (ethic) cake and at the same time let the children of US aristocracy eat it.
