Mindy Kaling’s Brother Reveals He Pretended to Be Black to Get into Medical School

In a new website-slash-pitch for a memoir, Vijay Chokal-Ingam, the brother of comedian Mindy Kaling, reveals that he gamed the system and managed to get into medical school by claiming he was African-American.

Chokal-Ingam, who graduated from the University of Chicago with a meager 3.1 GPA, says that his ploy began after the self-described party boy saw his fellow Asian Indian-Americans, many of whom had higher grades, fail to get into medical school. “I shaved my head, trimmed my long Indian eyelashes, and applied to medical school as a black man,” he wrote on his website, AlmostBlack.com. “My change in appearance was so startling that my own fraternity brothers didn’t recognize me at first. I even joined the Organization of Black Students and started using my embarrassing middle name that I had hidden from all of my friends since I was a 9 years old.”

With this, “Jojo” managed to get into the selective Saint Louis University School of Medicine with the exact same application he used as an Indian man. As a fake black man, he allegedly secured interviews at nine highly selective medical schools, including Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Pennsylvania.

This says a lot, both positive and negative, about SLU Med.





Same Old Story

Firefighters in St. Louis County do not look like those they are trained to protect

In Hazelwood, none of the city’s 36 firefighters is black although nearly a third of its residents are African-American.

In neighboring Ferguson, more than 67 percent of residents are black, compared with 7 percent of firefighters.

And in the Florissant Valley Fire Protection District, two of the 60 firefighters are black, representing 3.3 percent of the department. By comparison, more than a quarter of the residents who live in that part of the region are African-American.

The situation is the same throughout the parts of St. Louis County with large African-American populations. With the Justice Department fresh off an investigation here after Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, more cities are being scrutinized for their hiring practices amid criticism that minorities are systemically underrepresented in public employment.

And why this disparity?  The next two paragraphs should be very familiar to you if you’ve been reading this space since August 9.

Fire chiefs say that there are not enough qualified black applicants and that blacks hired are hard to retain, often recruited by other departments that offer better pay and benefits in communities with fewer emergency calls.

“Even when we are fortunate to hire a minority, we don’t get to hold onto them for very long,” Hazelwood Fire Chief Dave Radel said. He said part of the reason for a lack of blacks on his department came from having two fire protection districts that also serve parts of his city. It doesn’t take long for firefighters on mutual aid calls to begin talking and find where the better salaries are, he said.

Really now, this is getting too easy.

If both places will have you, because you’re black, where would you rather go?  Monarch or Metro West where you’ll get paid well for getting cats down from trees, or any FPD in North County where your fire house will be a city of the bells, you have to go out on a run for every shooting and murder, and at a lower pay scale?

So they want Nixon to pick either a real estate appraiser or an equal opportunity bureaucrat to do a job that requires JD or CPA certification.

Making the News Fit

St. Louis County

First story, goes like this:  People don’t want to be cops like the used to.  Because they’re worried about doing the right thing and defending their lives against a cigarillo-swiping GENTILIVS GIANTIVUS, then having to spend the rest of their lives in hiding.  So, departments everywhere are lowering their standards.

Second story, goes like this:  County Browns want more blacks.  And don’t mind any of this gibberish about standards; other than the “no felony” thing and maybe the “21 years old” thing, they’re willing to overlook everything else if you don’t pass.  Just be black.  That’s all that matters.  It says this recruiting session is “open to all genders,” but then the transphobic SLCPD lists the theoretical physical qualifications for only two genders, when any idiot on Facebook can tell you that there are 58 genders (*).  Get ready for a barrage of hate from Tumblr SJWs.

(*) – If you are genderfluid and plan to go to this recruitment event for the SLCPD, I suggest that you fluid yourself to a woman that day so you can be compared to the easier set of running, sit-up and push-up standards, just in case they do take the fitness test seriously.

The First Two Law Schools to Drop the LSAT Could Be Just the Beginning

Some schools are eliminating the standard exam requirement in order to make it easier for top students to get into their programs

Two law schools said this month that they would begin accepting applicants who have not taken the Law School Admissions Test, a move that may help curb weak interest and plunging enrollments in law schools across the country. The State University of New York-Buffalo Law School and the University of Iowa College of Law said they would admit students from their respective undergraduate colleges based on their grade point average and scores on standardized tests other than the LSAT.

“Taking the LSAT is a pain, and it is expensive,” says James Gardner, dean of SUNY Buffalo’s law school. The test comes with a $170 fee, often in addition to months-long prep courses and tutoring that can cost thousands of dollars. “This is just a way to identify strong-performing students based on perfectly rational criteria that don’t involve the LSAT,” Gardner says.

If the LSAT is g-loaded, then the real reason for this is very similar for the reason why a lot of undergrad schools are making the SAT/ACT optional for admissions. Because diversity. High scorers will self-report to impress the admissions committee, NAMs won’t because they’re NAMs. Therefore, you’ll have a Freshman class that has both a very high SAT/ACT average and high NAM diversity. The dirty little secret is that you’re supposed to walk away thinking the NAMs contributed to the high SAT/ACT average, but they didn’t. Likewise, I think making the LSAT optional for law school is a means to be able to slip more NAMs in.

Currier says doing away with the test might draw people to a career in law who would otherwise go to business or medical school.

Because we’re really suffering for a lack of lawyers.
