The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

In the Ivy League, All Are Equal

Well, except for ROTC members and those from a farming background. Those scoundrels need not darken the doors of the esteemed University these days:

Nieli highlights one of the study’s more remarkable findings: while most extracurricular activities increase your odds of admission to an elite school, holding a leadership role or winning awards in organizations like high school R.O.T.C., 4-H clubs and Future Farmers of America actually works against your chances. Consciously or unconsciously, the gatekeepers of elite education seem to incline against candidates who seem too stereotypically rural or right-wing or “Red America.”

I'd complain about this reverse racism, but it's getting pretty tiring. Anyone who still thinks that sending their children to schools like Harvard will do any good surely deserves to be parted from their money.
