Uhhhhh, DUH!

The UVa administration take pride in serving the blue bloods and the legacy students or promoting their "diversity" with accepting a bunch of Chinese nationals. If you are a low-income white, black or hispanic looking to get an education on in-state tuition rates, you can forget about UVa.

VCU, JMU, GMU, ODU, VSU and even UVa-Wise are much more interested in educating Virginia residents than worrying about their "esteemed" heritage.

Wonder if this "snob factor" is affecting sports recruiting? How many decent players pass over UVAs recruiting efforts due to perceived biases that are exacerbated by stories like this? Its an intangible factor I know, but a couple nationally ranked football players added to the roster couldn't hurt. They dont seem to be beating down the doors to get in.

Any place that charges their employees to pay a ridiculous rate to park needs to be a evaluated. If NBC would investigate the parking situation at UVa that would be a story worth seeing!

If you are paying for your's, your spouse's, and your kid's, then you would know that a college's financial aid office works with scholarships, grants, and loans. Not all are free from government handouts.

Were it not for tests that separate the wheat from the chaff your surgeon would be one of the tent dwellers near the Autozone at the Rivanna.

Here it is again, the word "diverse", abstract white racist terminology.
