I thought this was a forum of open ideas and thoughtfulness. This is insulting, childish, and most of all, disappointing.

Thank you for your constructive criticism. However, my criticism of these details is that well, they are details. I’m a big picture guy – I see trends, analyze large scale problems and weighty issues, and most importantly, I find solutions. I gave Georgetown the solution and now its up to them to put in the grunt work.

Georgetown, you’re welcome.

Regards,

Average Joe

What, don’t tell me I don’t understand it either!

Or below-average intelligence? Because your plan is ridiculous at best. If we only took non-racists, we’d have about 500 students. Most of whom would be black. Is that really what you want? I know that might sound racist, but it isn’t, so it’s not.

And “Anonymous,” they got rid of the “check here if you’re a racist” box five years ago for the same reason they got rid of the “check here if you’re a Jew box” in 1996. People lie. Obviously they would say they were racist even if they weren’t, just so that Georgetown would consider their application. The admissions office now does a much better job of admitting racist students by just looking for subtle hints in applications, like letters of recommendation written by local KKK leaders or personal statements about summer internships at the Pro-Defamation League.

Besides, isn’t part of the point of a university education to help broaden students’ horizons, as horribly cliched as that might sound?
