What Does It Take To Get Into Occidental College?

I have no reason to question Barack Obama's place of birth (except for information that he himself provided his first publisher).  Until someone finds credible evidence to the contrary, I'll assume he was born in Honolulu.

What I find curious about his biography, though, has to do with that part of his life that had him drunk and high - again by his admission - in high school, skipping classes in order to go out back and "choom" weed, keeping himself in a perpetual state of blotto, but somehow being subsequently accepted to Occidental College upon graduation.

How'd that come about?

Were there no academic requirements there?

Did Occidental do a Harvard/Elizabeth Warren and admit Obama simply because he was (half-) black?

The two chapters in his biography don't jibe.

And answers won't be forthcoming.

At least not until 60 Minutes does an exposé the month after he leaves office.
