Well I wanted to start a new thread because none of the others really seriously addressed this fundamental question. Is affirmative action truly a factor in admissions acceptance today?? If so how?? I am starting to believed it may be phased out or coming to be nonexistent. I have no proof. I just believe that it is too tight and too competitive for everyone for affirmative action to be utilized. Not to start a fight, but if a person is not disadvantaged, but is a minority, there is no affirmative action for them, right?? or am I wrong?? I don't know. just a thought. what are your thoughts??
