predicting success in college is virtually impossible unless one knows the motivation and dedication of the student....
"Every one" should have an equal opportunity regardless of race,creed or religion. Affirmative Action is out dates and should not apply today " "de-emphasized race" by "giving extra consideration to disadvantaged applicants and to those whose grades and test scores are above average for their economic circumstances. Obviously race comes into play because minorities are often disadvantaged but it isn't a system based on race, gender or ethnicity." It is geared to all. "
"Even if the state were to ban race-based affirmative action, the class-based framework should increase low-income admissions, maintain minority representation, and even better, predict success in college. It's a model that could help other universities become more diverse." This is the twenty first century. Why not treat 'every ' student as equal as created and as specified in our historical documents?

I started posting in early 2011, now get out your calculater and see if you can add that one up.

Liberal/Progressive democrats want everyone to have exactly the same as everyone else even at others' expense to level some playing field that doesn't exist and wouldn't work if it did.

Liberal/Progressive democrats are the politically correct police slowly but surely eroding personal freedoms and common sense if any behaviors are not deemed politically correct.

Unless and until Liberal/Progressive democrats lose their stronghold as the final and last word on what is and what is not socially acceptable, they will continue to be the problem.

However, if Obamacare sinks, Liberal/Progressive democrats will go down with the ship, and it will all be over except for the cryin'. The silver lining to the 2012 election.

Hopefully, you will jump ship in time before it starts listing next year.

You people are always great at claiming "there were far better solutions" but you never present any alternatives. Never! Single payer was an option but Republicans shot it down. Other than "repeal Obamacare"; allowing the purchase of health insurance across state lines; reforming malpractice laws so doctors are protected and patients are left high and dry; and forcing people with pre-existing conditions to purchase expensive insurance through high risk pools what else you got? Absolutely nothing. Guess that is why you are known as the party of "no". You have NO solutions.
Look up the GOP's plan for health care reform. It's easy and you're smart. You'll find all of their proposed alternative solutions on one site.

You wouldn't listen even if I told you myself. That's an ongoing problem by many on the left..

I already listed their so-called, "solutions". Nothing they have suggested improves the quality of care or the out-of-control rate increases. Nothing!

given the present circumstances, the only option is to sit back and let ObamaKKKare fail....and then any solution will look good by comparison...
