It is because they sneak their children through (with low GPAs) while not giving the places to the other people with higher GPAs etc.

They just say 'awwwwwwwww it is really competitive, there were lots of really really really really great applicants and you just didn't make it -- sorry' to those who miss out.

And people believe them.

Because they trust them.

Because they believe they are honest people with integrity.

Because we want to believe them. We don't want to believe there is widespread corruption in the hospitals, our doctors, our universities.

And then it turns out that the truth of it is that they just didn't process their application. Because they wanted to give the place to their kid. Because they thought it would make their kids look bad.

I wasn't sure if I should apply for disability (as a special admission category) or not. I don't need accommodations. I am ambivalent about whether I have disability or not. My envirnoment in NZ is disabling, however. I live off of disability because this country refuses to provide me a living wage unless other people are paid to micro-mis-manage me in some way or another. Apparently the only thing you get if you apply as a disability candidate is that they will consider your application if your GPA is low.

They don't say what that means. Perhaps they mean they will offer you an interview if you wouldn't be offered an interview otherwise. Then the hope is that your guide dog or your ESL interpreter or your three heads will ensure you a low interview score so you can be told 'awwww sorry there were many really great candidates but your interview score wasn't good enough'.

My GPA would have been one of the highest they had seen. So. No point applying for disability. Even when the point of the category is supposed to increase representation.

Only it turns out the point of the category is to increase discrimination actually.

They were taking the piss.

I said 'I don't need to be consdiered as a disability equity candidate thanks'.

So they decline my application.

When I query why they declined it it turned out they miscalculated my GPA.

I wonder if the only GPA miscalculation was the disability equity candidate.

I am actually not making this sh*t up.

So... What will their excuse be this year? There always is an excuse.

I imagine that the UCAT was introduced becuase it provided 5 metrics. They said as much. So now they can make up an arbitrary cut off threshold each year that is just below the last candidate they have already decided gets a place for each of the scales.

They are soooooooooo cleeeeeeever, you see.

They don't seem to understand / care how f*ck*ng obvious they are.

It is just astounding how hell bent they are on ruining things for us all.
