"The women and minorities should have gotten FREE cupcakes and Whitey should have been paying a c-note. Duh!?"
Can someone tell me what kind of college admissions advantage white women are getting these days? I know about the "women owned business" nonsense, but don't have the impression that colleges are lowering admissions standards for women like they are for blacks, hispanics, and other ethinic minorities (except asians; we can discriminate against them, apparently, because they are a successful minority group.)
RPI pays women and blacks to go to come to the school. I had a good time funding education for everyone buy myself on a federal level and a university level. Fun fun fun.
For what its worth, every program run by the department I work for (under the college engineering) is expressly aimed at recruiting woman and other "minorities not represented in the sciences".
Coincidentally, me and the other computer techie are the only two males who work in the office :P
And yes, it pains me to be a cog in the wheel of diversity, but it pays the bills :P
