This is like putting hard earned money (time) into a casino (the labor market), where the payoffs are skewed in favor of one group of people, AT THE EXPENSE of hard working suckers like me.
This is how I get punished? For what?! Why should she be permitted to smile and take her mug at "Harvard Law," where some of the greatest minds have passed? What has she done to belong there other than "be" of a certain category, what skill does that take?
Mostly I want to mock you because you are being a huge dick. But I also feel sorry for you because this is not a healthy mindset to have. There are certain things in life that will not turn out the way you want them to. This is not because the world is stacked against you. It's just a part of life. It is not fair for a person to be born in India in poverty but here we are. It is up to the law schools to determine what factors they want in a student. One factor that they value is ethnic diversity. Is it fair that you do not contribute to ethnic diversity? Maybe not. But I'll bet you've also had some advantages that other students have not had. Is that fair? Ultimately there is an element of arbitrariness that is hard, but healthy, to accept. Do the best with the cards you are dealt and don't make a fool of yourself on the internet. That doesn't help.
