The Harvard University Admissions Process ends Friday. At the center of this controversial federal court is the question of how far a school can take into account the admission race.

The plaintiff, a group called Students For Fair Admissions, has accused Harvard of discriminating against Asian Americans. They argue that the school considers the breed too big and forces the Asian Americans to reach a higher bar.

With positive action at the center of this debate, the 15-day trial attracted a large audience. The public benches in the Boston courthouse were regularly crowded with students, parents, school officials, and community members.
