Also in the case above the girl couldn't even get in on her own grades when UT usually lets in so many people.
I mean, the guy was also caucasian. Albanian doesn't mean black...or brown...or any other color...

He was born in America and looks/acts/behaves like any "white guy" I've ever met. The point is he could use his ethnicity and family as an added point to get him in. I believe she deserved it more, just knowing the two personally.
