Lest this thread spiral out of control, I suggest that both Callofthewind and Culovv dial back the attitude and language just a bit. Thanks.

Callofthewind:

You are retarded. Even if he/she wasnt poor and a URM he/she would still have a good chance anywhere.

You obviously do have that advantage though, and i dont see any schools rejecting you. Good luck
