Injury

Abigail Fisher was “injured” when the University of Texas denied her admission. Applying for college takes time and is an emotional thing for some students. For the past four years students have been working hard in order to be able to get into the college that they want. So when Abigail Fisher got that rejection letter from the University of Texas, she probably felt bad about herself. Even though it did not cause physical injury, it caused emotional injury for this young girl. Unfortunately though Abigail would have had a stronger case if she had not attended a different university after her rejection, and had said that she did not intend to apply to the university in the future. Because it shows that Fisher had not been injured enough to apply to another school and move on with her life.
