5. A private organization has every right to choose its members and decide for itself
what people can and cannot be a part of it. Yes, that college has a right to say she cannot attend there, both in my example and in yours. On the other hand, UCLA does not have the right to discriminate because it is a public school.

Your argument is really that no group should ever have the right to decide for itself who its members can be? The KKK must accept blacks? A Muslim school must educate Jewish children? A gay support group must accept homophobes? Really?
