From today's OpinionJournal.com:
"In 2002, Yale received a letter from Paula Nirschel, the founder of the Initiative to Educate Afghan Women.
The purpose of the organization, begun in that year, was to match young women in post-Taliban Afghanistan to U.S. colleges, where they could pursue a degree.
Ms. Nirschel asked Yale if it wanted to award a spot in its next entering class to an Afghan woman. Yale declined."
Over 2000 schools were asked to join the program.
