Transformative leader?

When I applied to the University of Florida Levin School of Law Environmental and Land Use Planning Law (ELUPL) program five times, commencing in 2010, I thought a UF LL.M. would help to make me a "transformative leader." No interview, no meeting, no answers, despite nearly 50 letters of recommendation from law professors, retired judges, activists, former clients, journalists, community leaders, retired judges who are former clients, etc. Apparently, I am just too old, too Gay and too pro-environmental to be admitted to the program. That is why the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights will investigate UF for pattern and practice age, disability and retirement discrimination. We shall overcome!
