I just wish the topics regarding AA were restricted to another board. This forum is supposedly about applications, not the history of slavery.
The posts are flying because people are being rejected - people with numbers who can't get into the school they feel is rejecting them for another person, or people who have fewer intangible qualities that the school is looking for. In reality the sad thing is that if you break down the number of actual minority applicants/acceptees, you will find that they are the MINORITY (what a shocker) and THEREFORE most of the people that "took your spot" are, in fact, not minorities.
People need to get over it.
