Do I think race and gender had something to do with it? Hell yes, am I pissed off that I didn't get in...no because I got into my first choice. There was only one guy that got into UCLA from my class when there were like five girls...and a lot of the guys made them look bad.
    I know a lot of people male, and female, white and others, who got into UCB and UCLA. Perhaps your grades just weren't up to par? Mine weren't, no biggie. Getting involved in a startup in high school destroyed my GPA, no regrets though.

    There is a gender imbalance in education these days, it's a serious issue. If anything being a guy sort of helps these days, as less and less of us go to college every year. Schools are starting to do AA type stuff for men.

    @ Laconian...the name says I'm hispanic...am I, yes. I'm a half breed...but I can look in the damn mirror and see what shade of pigment I am.

    @ Eskachig...mine were pretty solid, they were lower than that chicks. Like I said when I applied for college...that was six years ago. Honestly idk why I'm wining...I have the diploma of my first choice.

    OOPs, I was told that by someone. I went to RUHS. You just can not trust people anymore.

    Still in the neighborhood! I went to HHS. The Beach Boys are one of our few claims to fame. Shocking considering the demographics of that high school today. My mother attended RUHS mid 60's - small world! Do you ever go back and visit Redondo? I currently live in Hermosa Beach.
