    heh. You got the same ACT score I did about 30 years ago

    I was nominated most likely to succeed, but had a GPA 3rd from last.

    Life is certainly funny, sometimes.

    You are obviously gifted in technical areas. What impresses me most is your 4/5 score on US History! Seems to be not too much interest in that area these days.

    I did not develop a deep interest in history till well into my professional career. Sometimes I wish I had paid a little bit more attention, especially in light of the goings-on in the world today that have their roots in events that occurred thousands of years ago.

    Very good results! Good luck to you, I'm sure you'll get accepted where ever you wish to go. If you really want to get in somewhere do some geneology and find a way to mark yourself non white or non asian and your chances of getting in drastically improve. There was just a really big write up on it in forbes. It said asians have to compete against other asians to get into ivy league schools so their grades have to be way higher then another ethnicity.

    Not really, it's federal law to "prevent racism". Quotas and all that. What defines "racist" is all about who says it these days.

    White Male with a job is now a numerical minority in the US, being under 30%, but the laws don't apply there.

    racist of maxpower or racist of the schools?
    Maxpower is only stating the facts.
    Racism is not gone; it just works the other way now.

    Agreed. but its not only in schools. Its everywhere. I have experienced it recently in the workplace. I would love to rant about it, but I'm afraid I would be labeled a racist and/or get the thread closed.

    Unfortunetaly its a very old and outdated law that just hurts people now. Its not white/black anymore its rich/poor.

    its both. We're finding more and more creative ways to divide ourselves at a time when we really should be focusing on working as a team.

    i agree, the hardest thing to be in terms of government money and such things is a white male
    Although, there was a company that got sued for not hiring enough white people, so apparently the laws can go the other way.

    I'll second the +1 on this. I don't know how we have become so divided, not just politically, but in every area. It's like a bunch of high school cliques have reformed in adult society.
