For instance I can’t tell you how many applications I saw that were just dripping with white male privelege. Any of those that I saw basically went straight to the garbage can regardless of how good their qualifactions were. If I saw an application from a white male that basically was just good test scores, and activities like chess club or math club or what not then it shows me this person is not interested in a diverse environment. Obviously he made no effort in integrating with minorities or to sympathize with them and is counting on male privelege to get in. So that kind of application should get ignored. In their place I admitted a female student. This goes double especially for math/science majors.Imagine the sick educational environment that would lead someone to believe there was absolutely nothing wrong with writing something like that.
I’m happy to say that I approved nearly 90% of all female minority and 80% of all (white female applicants especially if the girls want to study math or science) while rejecting over 50% of white males this week and hope this trend holds out.
After web sleuths tentatively identified the blogger as Arianna Pattek and the university as Georgetown University via details about her senior thesis that she posted online, Georgetown's response has been odd. They have denied via Twitter that Pattek was employed in the admissions office, but have not released an official statement. Odder still, they have scrubbed any mention of Pattek from the University web site.
Google or Bing her name and you'll find multiple stories on the Georgetown University website, all of which have been dropped down the memory hole, as has her senior thesis. Some are still available on archive.org.
