8. Totalize much? Black and Latino students have deficits associated with CLASS

and not with academic achievement.

Sorry, alp, I didn't have time to do 25 extra curricular activities because I was the sole support for two kids. Oh, and I was admitted with a 4.0. Not a 4.5 because, of course, I couldn't afford a school that did that kind of rating.

Phi Beta Kappa didn't care, once I was admitted, and neither did graduate English where I was admitted in a class of 19 out of a field of several thousand. But, the admissions office had to factor in that I had no money and didn't go to a prep school just to let me in the door.

So, fuck that. This is a horrible decision for thousands of qualified students in California.
