University Diaries highlighted this as a blog title:
“90 percent of Chinese applicants [to American universities] submit fake recommendations, 70 percent have other people write their essays, 50 percent have forged high school transcripts, and 10 percent list academic awards and other achievements they did not receive.”

This from UCLA Fac Blog:

Back in Jan 2012 pointed to: Lure of Chinese Tuition Pushes Out Asian-Americans - Bloomberg from 2012:
"Kwanhyun Park, the 18-year-old son of Korean immigrants, spent four years at Beverly Hills High School earning the straight As and high test scores he thought would get him into the University of California, San Diego. They weren’t enough.

This year's 'College Campaign' reports:
April 2015 | "The State of Higher Education in California: Latino Report"
May 2015 | "The State of Higher Education in California: Black Report"
Note: they have a yet-to-be released report on the next group which they list as: "Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders"
One of the few refreshing things these days:
