hello just a reminder that the idea that extra curricular stuff being attached as part of improving your chances for getting into high quality universities was created only because POC were starting to meet pace with white kids when it came to academic ability and they needed a new gate for them to pass :)
Also a reminder that university rankings are fake marketing bullshit and that if you used legit systems you’d see that multiple hbcus rank *higher* than lots of ivy leagues :) :)
@eightbitsamurai I went to a very affordable state school, and I'd compare my education to any of my ivy league friends'. And furthermore, after your first couple of years working, literally no one cares about that stuff. I couldn't tell you where 95% of my coworkers went to school.
