dc.description.abstract We investigate whether the pool of applicants and admitted students at UNICAMP, a large Brazilian university, changed significantly following the instauration of an affirmative action policy based on awarding bonus points on an admission exam. Our results suggest that students coming a disadvantaged background were significantly more likely to be admitted after the introduction of the policy. Despite bene ting from a large bonus on the admission test, we do not observe a significant increase in the proportion of applicants coming from public secondary schools, but we do observe a small change in the distribution of measured academic ability for those that apply. en
