Did you tell your children? Or let them think they really achieved this on their own? #Scam

"Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present, the defendants -- principally individuals whose high-school age children were applying to college -- conspired with others to use bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children's admission to colleges and universities in the District of Massachusetts and elsewhere, including Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California, and the University of Southern California -- Los Angeles," the indictment said.

In most cases the students did not know their admission was contingent on a bribe, officials said.

The 200 pages of charging documents in the case were unsealed in Boston federal court

RE: No Conscience
Look at the abject idiots that come out of the "right" schools in politics and industry today. Do you really think they got there on their own merit?
Legacy admissions, recommendations by fat cat contributors..nepotism have long been accepted criteria. Bribery is really no less honorable and lead me to wonder why anyone would be surprised.

I don't even want to talk about athletic scholarships for football mill schools for "students" that can barely read or write.

The whole thing is a scam. Always has been.

Charles Kushner pledged 2.5 million to Harvard, both sons got in,Jared's acceptance to the surprise of his High School teachers.

The Story Behind Jared Kushner’s Curious Acceptance Into Harvard

ProPublica editor Daniel Golden wrote a book a decade ago about how the rich buy their children access to elite colleges. One student he covered is now poised to become one of the most powerful figures in the country"

by Daniel Golden Nov. 18, 2016, 2 p.m. EST

Snip:


"My Kushner discoveries were an offshoot of my research for a chapter on Harvard donors. Somebody had slipped me a document I had long coveted: the membership list of Harvard’s Committee on University Resources. The university wooed more than 400 of its biggest givers and most promising prospects by putting them on this committee and inviting them to campus periodically to be wined, dined, and subjected to lectures by eminent professors.

My idea was to figure out how many children of these corporate titans, oil barons, money managers, lawyers, high-tech consultants and old-money heirs had gone to Harvard. A disproportionate tally might suggest that the university eased its standards for the offspring of wealthy backers.

I began working through the list, poring over “Who’s Who in America” and Harvard class reunion reports for family information. Charles and Seryl Kushner were both on the committee. I had never heard of them, but their joint presence struck me as a sign that Harvard’s fundraising machine held the couple in especially fond regard"

RE: No Conscience
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case. All too many Universities, large and small, engage in similar practice. Sometimes it is "donating" to a fraternity or sorority that has clout that a potential student is going to be a part of, often times it is through alumni or booster donations.
This made the news only because it involves high profile (sort of) folks. Sadly, I don't see this stopping the practice from continuing.

Toxic sludge is good for you.

RE: No Conscience
I hope they do time for this. Some kids that deserved an Ivy got hosed because they were cheated by money grubbing scum.

Prominent entertainers, business owners and college coaches are implicated in the scandal that involves boosting SAT scores and bribing college administrators, according to the criminal complaint.

"Ultimately, Huffman's daughter received a score of 1420 in the SAT, an improvement of approximately 400 points over her PSAT," the complaint reads.

It took all of 15 minutes for this to get turned into something about the current political administration. New record?
Any opportunity is a good one, yeah?

Disagree. Donating is legal. Bribery is not. There is a fine line with donating too. Adults should tow that line. These people arrested and those that were bought broke the law and should do time.

How's your day going John?

John Wilson, of Lynnfield, who owns a private equity and real estate development firm, is suspected of bribing the USC water polo coach to designate his son as a recruit to the USC men's water polo team.

"Wilson also sought to use bribes to to obtain the admission of his two daughters to Stanford University and Harvard University as recruited athletes," the complaint reads.

It’s apperant that you’ve never taken the SAT’s because you’d know the kids knew, so did the adult in the room.

I put donating in quotes as bribery is disguised as donations often. That is what the news story is about. There are legit donations. I wasn't meaning to insinuate that there aren't. Sorry if it came off like an accusation against legitimate school donations.

Why not?
The author wrote the book a decade ago and didn't even know who the Kushners were at the time and they weren't the only ones written about.
So it's selective with you on who gets talked about and accused of buying their kids way into prestigious universities.
Gotcha..Rofl
