  •  Perhaps rather than asserting--without proof-- (13+ / 0-)

    that there are slots for disadvantaged students that do not require the same level of academic achievement as the ones for privileged students, Ms. Weiss should spend some time explaining why she performed more poorly than all those other privileged students who won places at her preferred universities.
