even though the people on this discussion might tell me my case was an "exceptional" one
affirmative action is illegal in california, prop 209 makes it illegal so don't attribute some peoples success to AA, and as some people have stated race does play a small part. in fact it doesn't play a part at all in admissions. i realize that there are still colleges who would like to put certain races into their schools to boost their rates on US news and world report ranking. but legally it is not allowed.
