I was accepted into an ivy league school. I celebrated like crazy. After one year, I was $50, 000 in debt and had to drop out to focus on paying it off. The college systems are so screwed up and money hungry. This needs to end.

I really like that she admitted why she got in. She seems very sympathetic towards lower income pll.

I will tell you how it is done in EU. You wanna go to university... you list for exam, you take the exam and X amount of people are passed in. Depending on the course it will be 90-120 people. Now there is no interview process, no racial profiling, no photo. Just the exam, if you do good one exam you have a fair shot of getting in.

So I actually work in admissions. This is pretty accurate. To be totally honest, the most biggest deciding factor is that she got lucky. It's a crap-shoot. Sometimes ACT/SAT scores matter. Sometimes they don't. Your rank in class matters and then it doesn't. But your actual GPA in high school is most likely BS and no one cares.

People are missing the point of this video. It isn't really about race, but poverty. All the wealthy kids of color in my high school got into big prestigious universities. Most of the other kids of color didn't go to college or went to community college. Most of them were poor. Im Hispanic and grew up from a poor immigrant family and i was one of the 10 kids of color from my high school class that went straight into a university. That is 10 out of about 250 kids of color, excluding the wealthy ones. This happens, because most of the people of color dont come from wealthy families, so people assume its about race when its actually about income.
