"Not impressed. Following my interview, my interviewer informed me that my application was very strong, but their strict affirmative actions policies often make it nearly impossible for a white male to get in. In which case, I shouldn't be dissapointed if my application is not accepted. This was a bit of a slap in the face; I was accepted anyway, but so insulted that I turned U of M down." Report Response
