To luther and all other AA haters;
Let's put thing's straight. Affirmative action isn't just for minorities. The biggest benefactor of AA was the white woman. Before AA they were considered second class citizens.
Next, this idea about extras spots is ridiculous. Let's breakdown this concept. If 20 (ouf of 120) spots are "reserved" for minorities, and there are 300 minority applicants...you do the math. Minorities have to compete with other subsets of minorities and there white counterparts. It has already been proven that standardized tests are socially biased, but that a whole different discussion. In short, to gain admission to medical school as minority is much more difficult.
You (AA haters and luther) must think that every minority students profile is worse than every white medical students In fact, minority students are usually the cream of the crop of minority students. AA just states that you can discriminate on race, gender, etc. Grade/MCAT discrimination is legal to aby race and gender. The statement made about people who can't break a 20 on the MCAT shouldn't be physicians is stupid also. I know of people who have had scored 30's (whit and minority) and still failed in med school. There is a concept of academic profile which includes grades, MCAT, LOR, and volunteer experience. Medicine involves much more than academics. In many aspects, your a social worker, administrator, business manager, and teacher. A 30 on the MCAT or 4.0 GPA doesn't day anything about your people skills.
Finally, all med students take the same test and classes. If a student doesn't belong there, they will weed themselves out. People like luther are usually the type of person that have pretty descent grades, good MCATs, and good overall application. However, he/she continues to receive rejections, while a minority that he knows has gained admission. I believe that you need to take a close look at yourself. Your racist personality probably comes across during the interviews.
So please, don't think all people of color don't belong in med school because their GPA isn't equal to yours or the MCAT doesn't meet your expectations. Because at the end of it all we are all called Doctor.
