Abigail Fisher sued the University of Texas, claiming the school denied her application over less qualified minority students.
The country's highest court Wednesday tackled a white woman’s claim that she was denied entry to her dream university because of the color of her skin.

In a case that could drastically alter college affirmative action policies nationwide, Abigail Fisher’s lawyer told the U.S. Supreme Court that race should be “a last resort, not a first resort” when considering a student for admission.

“My parents always taught me that it is wrong to discriminate,” Fisher said after the 80-minute hearing in Washington.

Fisher, 22, claims her application for admission to the University of Texas at Austin was passed over in 2008 in favor of less qualified minority students.

The University of Texas allows students in the top 10% of their class automatic entry, and looks at other criteria, including race, for students with lower grades.

Fisher’s lawyer, Bert Rein, told the court Fisher suffered “constitutional injury” because of her denial to the college of her first choice.
