But as for unquantifiable factors, an applicant's poor critical thinking skills, inability to cite data, or tendency to rely on straw men might be reflected in his or her essay or in teacher recommendations. That would certainly outweigh something unimportant like SAT scores.

Other factors:
Demonstrated leadership
Demonstrated ability to overcome adversity and persist through challenges
The school wants a bassoonist
And you think that white applicants have this attribute 400% more frequently than asian applicants?
