Top 10 percent automatic admissions under review

Published on May 5, 2017 under CommunityImpact

The law—enacted 20 years ago this May to increase diversity in Texas’ public universities—has benefited Jettin Murphy, but so far it is working against her brother, Maverick, a junior at Round Rock ISD’s Westwood High School and a member of the golf team. Their mother, Shelby, said her family moved to Northwest Austin for Westwood’s academic prestige.
