Mindy Kaling's older brother claims he posed as a black man to get into medical school


Sitcom star and comedienne Mindy Kaling's older brother claims he got into medical school in the late 1990s by posing as a black man. Vijay Chokalingam - Mindy's full name is Vera Mindy Chokalingam - has been pitching a book over the last month that documents his experiences of changing his appearance in an effort to get accepted to medical school as a way to discuss what's 'wrong' with affirmative action. And though Chokalingam, a graduate of the University of Chicago, claims he applied to schools in 1998 as a black man, he does not specify if he applied to the same ones as an Indian-American man. 'I was determined to become a doctor and I knew that admission standards for certain minorities under affirmative action were, let's say… less stringent?' he wrote on his website, AlmostBlack.com.
