That just gave me an idea - when you said send them both, I immediately thought of making up a second fake person to apply with us. What if we manufactored a fake person who had all the right things and sent in the application? We could actually test out the system this way - fake applicants with subsets of credentials. That could be fun, say 3 Nobel Laureate reference letters and no research or perfect scores and the custodian writing the letter. I wonder what we would find out. Probably nothing
or what we already know - that they are as biased as a monkey. Or fill out the application for a monkey. Hmmm...
There were law school cases of a person who applied but checked off a underrepresented race, like hispanic or african american when they were in fact white. They were thrown out of the school, sued for reverse-discrimination, and won!!! I would say that is plan C (plan B is the monkey
