Harvard consistently rated Asian-American applicants lower on personal traits, according to an analysis by a group suing the school for bias

Harvard consistently rated Asian-American applicants lower than any other race on personal traits like “positive personality,” likability, courage, kindness and being “widely respected,” according to an analysis of more than 160,000 student records.

The records were filed Friday in federal court in Boston by a group representing Asian-American students in a lawsuit against the university.

Obviously biased, but is some of it true. Ask anyone who goes to school with Asian Americans. They don't have as much fun as other groups, skew the curves in STEM courses and seem to be constantly stressed-out.
And, since their high GPAs and SAT scores always get them through the first screening, maybe Harvard is trying to get a balance with their student body.
Heck, when I attended UMBC years ago, we called it U Must Be Chinese because of all of the Asian students. Hasn't gotten much better.
