When I applied to USC Law in 2007, one place I got accepted, I wrote about how I was on welfare as a kid. I mentioned the times when I searched for empty cans and bottles. I even think I alluded to the time I searched in a garbage can and found a box of half-eaten pizza or when I found a cold Baby Ruth candy bar in a dumpster. What a rags-to-riches story my life is! Unless, of course, the absolute truth is we're all born rich. In that case, I didn't forfeit my wealth.
