    I do. She had a bad application. My GPA and SAT were only slightly higher than hers. However, I also played soccer three years, one year in every season, I ran cross country a year. I worked three summers while in high school. I was involved in numerous clubs at school like National Honors Society. I received the highest honor in my class on the National Latin Exam. I did a summer abroad program. I volunteered in multiple places like soccer games for a local church group and for school events. I did theater my freshman and senior year and I did an internship my senior year. Plus I had a major negative point against me in going to three different high schools.

    Compare mine to hers, and that has more reason to do with why she didn't get into a competitive school than her race.

    There are other variables in college admission like I already mentioned but you conveniently left out of the quote.

    That's why I liked Nathan Glazer's evolved stance. Some concerns aside, he always thought that a student's race should be taken into consideration in order to admit more minorities.

    No one should be refused admission to a university because of the melanin content of their skin.

    And no one should be admitted to a university because of the melanin content of their skin.

    That's a stupid law as well...just as affirmative action is.

    Government's should not be in the business of dictating how universities fill their enrolments...whether it's by how the applicants finished in high school, their sex or the melanin content of their skin.

    Let the universities decide free from dumb ass politicians.
