Caltech admissions have always been much more meritocratic than at the Ivies. Focus on merit produces dramatic results.

Caltech Asian American representation has tracked the growth in population of college age AAs -- unlike the Ivies. No Quotas! pic.twitter.com/VDgPie1nbs

By popular demand, print versions of "Introduction to Classical and Quantum Computing" are now available on Amazon! It's $14.99 for the paperback and $29.99 for the hardcover. That's way more affordable than most science textbooks.https://t.co/6fRJvZMMVJ
