    Low - as I seriously question why anyone would think it was smart to apply to Washington and Lee and at the same time highlight you tried to change the name of your high school from Robert E Lee (to something presumably more PC in your mind). It shows your ignorance of the vast and important contributions of our founding fathers and famous Virginians, and that you have no idea about the specific history of W&L. Maybe it will fly with some of the schools in the northeast, but the inconsistency is blinding when considering UVA, W&L and W&M.
