FILE - In this Feb. 13, 2012, file photo, demonstrators protest outside of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals after a panel heard oral arguments in San Francisco in a lawsuit seeking to overturn Proposition 209, which barred racial, ethnic or gender preferences in public education, employment and contracting. As the Supreme Court revisits the use of race in college admissions in October 2012, critics of affirmative action are hopeful the justices are poised to roll back the practice. A new report out Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012 offers a big reason for their optimism: evidence the nine states where leading public universities don't use affirmative action have succeeded in bringing diversity to their campuses through race-neutral means.

ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, OCT. 7, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - In this Monday, Oct. 1, 2012 photo, University of Texas at Austin Director of Admissions, Dr. Kedra Ishop, works in her office in Austin, Texas. Walking across the South Mall, or scanning the football stadium’s 100,000 seats on game day, Ishop sees how much has changed since the 1990s, when she was a black student at what was an inordinately white school. As a high school student, Ishop’s civil rights activist parents hesitated to send her to UT. Now, as she travels the state as its chief recruiter, UT’s historical legacy leaves some students skeptical the university will welcome them. (AP Photo/Michael Thomas)
