white person: *has a low GPA, no extracurricular activities, and a poorly written essay*
white person: i didn’t get into this university bc im white
Even worse - it’s called a 10 percent rule, where if you’re in the top 10 percent in your class, you’re automatically accepted to a state college in Texas. AUTOMATICALLY. All she had to do was keep her grades up in high level courses and she would have been a shoe in, but… they discriminated against her because she’s “white”…
Even more? All she had to do to literally get in with her grades? Go to a community college for her first year, then transfer in. The first year of UT is rough, anywa,y and half flunk out because of the mandatory English courses…
It’s embarrassing that it’s gotten all the way to the SCOTUS… because when you consider the state of education in Texas, it’s honestly the most fair law in place right now (and one I couldn’t benefit from, as it was enacted well after I was applying) and honestly, it’s kind of even more embarrassing that she wanted to be a Longhorn. With that attitude, I’m glad that she was denied admission. She doesn’t deserve to be burnt orange.
