I go to a private all girls college prep school (wwww.marlboroughschool.org), and I haven't really encountered that. All that matters here are numbers, and if you have them you're straight. It has nothing to do with race....most of the Black girls here are intelligent and are treated as such. Now...I also went to an all white private elementary school--they told me that they didn't think I could get into the school I'm in now because of my math grades--which were teetering between C and C+
and I still got into Marlborough. go figure.

I understand....I'm a high school junior, so I'm starting the whole college thing...my dad told me that i could only apply to five schools (!) because he didn't think we could get fee waivers (BS!)...and there is no way I can apply to only five schools--I'm working on him though.
