So if he were white would he have been accepted? Even with lackluster grades at Columbia? Did he graduate with honors from Occidental?

Yes, he would have been accepted, and as it turned out, he was accepted although I think it was a tad more like what they really do ~ he was recruited. Somebody at Columbia put his name in the till to see if any money could come out, and granny made sure they got aholt of his genealogy!
I was recruited when I made a perfect LSAT score AND I'm one of those legacies ~ lots of Harvard grads in the line all the way back ~ many of the same folks as Obama.
I didn't go there. BTW, I was recruited by Columbia even earlier coming out of highschool. We couldn't come to terms on how much they'd "contribute".
