What did he/she do? I don't have Facebook and can't access the page/article. Is it a SJW?

One of the questions asked "Whats important to you?". The guy wrote "Black lives matter" 100 times. He's also a left wing "activist" that's met Husien and Clinton both.

I wonder how Hugh Mungus might have responded on his application to Stanford?

FWIW, Stanford is not an in the Ivy League. They are in the Pac 12. However, it's odd admissions praised him for his response when he didn't answer the 2nd part of the question.

The kid is an academic stud. He was also admitted to Princeton and Yale.

You all seem to assume his essay got him admitted to Stanford. Maybe he got into Stanford in spite of his essay.

I'm sure his test scores are exceptional.

It would be interesting to see the acceptance of a white academic stud who wrote 100 times.."police lives matter"?

Nowhere did I assume that. I clearly stated ONE of the questions asked was answered in that fashion and also mentioned he met both Husien andClinton... I'm sure that didn't hurt his chances.

Would never happen. The reverse discrimination in this country is the worst it's ever been.

Colleges are bastions of diversity, except when it comes to diversity of viewpoint, which is actually the most important kind.

It's funny, he said he wants to use this experience "to learn from his black brothers & sisters," Stanford's student body is 4% black.

The title of this thread (how you get into the Ivy League) is aptly named.

This kid is a poster child for how to do it:

- He attends a prestigious prep school (Princeton Day);
- He is a ferocious self-promoter (his essay to Stanford was revealed by him-also check out what he does with his volunteer time);
- He comes from a desirable demographic that allows the admitting school to trumpet their ethnic diversity...in other words, he's a "get".

I've been through this process with one of mine. Step 1 is to have the academic credentials. That actually doesn't weed out very many because only the exceptional apply to Stanford, Yale, Harvard, MIT. Step 2...do you have a hook? Jock, legacy, minority...something that will get you over the goal-line? Most of these schools are only so-so in most of their sports, but they have lots of rich alums who rowed, played soccer, hockey, etc., for the alma mater and want the teams to win...at least against the rivals. If you are white, middle class (male or female) and don't have one of those hooks, your chances of being admitted are close to zero...even IF you have the top, top, top academic and test profile.

P.S.: If you fall into that middle class white male/white female category, there are things that can be done to turn yourself into a "get". Pick a low profile sport and get good at it (not simple, but not impossible either...I've seen it done); promote yourself like Mr. Ahmed.

Per usual, you are incorrect. Read my post again.

I'm not shocked. Your faux-scholar personality on here is pretty transparent.

Only 2 people gave their opinion, myself and Possessed. Neither myself nor Possessed said anything that could lead you to the conclusion we assumed his essay got him admitted to Stanford, other than maybe Possessed's thread title. My post said I found it odd he was praised (which he was) despite not answering the 2nd half. Every day I find it more and more far fetched that you're a lawyer.

Yeah, there's absolutely 0% chance the "essay" alone got him in. He's obviously incredibly, incredibly intelligent. It's harder to get into Stanford than a lot of the Ivy League schools.

He's definitely a tool. Reminds me of this cuck from a year ago:

Just to throw this out there... I clearly stated ONE of the questions asked, not the only question asked. Also, I mentioned he met Husien and Clinton and that certainly didn't hurt his chances. Pretty obvious he met them through activism and such. Nobody insinuated anywhere he got in based on 1 simple question.

Cat, would you like for to explain the difference between arrested and serving jail time again? Seems like you're slippin'.

He's no "cuck". No mere spectator. He's swallowing the whole thing himself in the original and in this one.

He goes to a super wealthy Pvt school in ATL. How many black kids do you think he's ever met? I can't stand these self righteous losers who've literally done nothing to help black people, they just get their rocks off virtue signaling.
