This makes me so upset. I hate it when people assume that because I'm black I am automatically guaranteed a spot in professional school or that I'm taking someone else's spot because of affirmative action. I have worked so hard to obtain my GPA, I've worked so hard to be active in my school and in the healthcare community... but apparently, none of that matters. I just don't understand sometimes. It amazes me that some people think that an African American student couldn't have gotten in because of their own merits, but because of their skin tone.
