When I was in HS and got into a top ten university via early decision, this guy I had known since elementary school and we used to compete with each other about grades (like, we would make fun of the other if they got a 99 on a test when our score was a 104 - yes, we were that nerdy) told me that I only got in because of affirmative action because one of our other good friends (a white girl) didn't get in and we had similar GPAs and test scores. We're still cool, but I'll never forget that he said that. It was a shining moment like, "Yep, thanks. I see how it is."
