Does Your Son Want to Go To Georgetown?

Maybe he should rethink that:

Former University Student Trashed Applications from White Males
…I can’t tell you how many applications I saw that were just dripping with white male privelege[sic]. Any of those that I saw basically went straight to the garbage can regardless of how good their qualifactions [sic] were. If I saw an application from a white male that basically was just good test scores, and activities like chess club or math club or what not then it shows me this person is not interested in a diverse environment. Obviously he made no effort in integrating with minorities or to sympathize with them and is counting on male privilege to get in. So that kind of application should get ignored. In their place I admitted a female student. This goes double especially for math/science majors.
The woman was a former Georgetown student, who received a Masters in "Foreign Service Studies" with a senior thesis entitled: Exposing “Men with Matches”: An Exploration of Denier/Distorter Pseudohistorians, Their Motivations, and Their Dangers.

She admitted what she had done in a blog post here, and was tracked to Georgetown from there.  Georgetown has responded by deleting her name from the list of Senior theses for 2012.
AVFM has obtained copies, a before and after record of Georgetown’s list of master’s theses from 2012. If you had examined their website before this scandal broke, you would have found Pattek’s name on the list with a link to her thesis. You can download the previous version of the page

Class of 2012 Senior Theses – Program on Justice and Peace -With Arianna

However now, if you go to the page you will find no trace of her name, and naturally no link to her thesis.

Well, he probably didn't want to go there anyway; tuition and housing total about $63k annually.
