I hope all of you who argue that there isn't such a thing as white privilege and that every kid in this country has the same opportunities remembers this story among others. Of course people like Doug and iFall already forgot.


Here in NJ illegal aliens are getting grant money and financial aid for college.......tell me more about privilege as I get ready for my second child to start college in the fall.


Those illegal aliens will get a hell of a lot more out of college than the kids who got bribed in. Hell, the average illegal alien does a fuckload more for society than the average idle rich trustafarian.


And those illegal aliens won't be the ones raping drunk sorority girls and getting away with it like the Brock Turners of the world.


You could probably apply Trump's illegal rapist aliens rant towards Mar-A-Lago and find it's a better fit.

i agree that wealthy people illegally bribing their kids into university is appalling. Think of the better, more deserving kids who studied and got A's on their tests but couldn't get in because the level playing field was paved over with oodles of cash.

You'd think all that money would have given the wealthy kids a first rate education or at least enough leisure time to build up some athletic prowess and therefore would have got in based on merit.

But I suppose a bribe is cheaper than buying a new wing for the math center.

22nd in the nation isn't terrible and only 1 out of 6 get accepted. However, once you're in, I didn't find it that difficult. Pretty much cruised but I went to a high school that over-prepared me for college. shrug

I don't think the Ivy Leagues are really all that either. MIT and CalTech are what I would consider the truly elite schools. You won't see the bribery happening too well there because they'll get weeded out hard in the first year (week?).

The state colleges recruit international students to get the big tuition.

My wife did grad school at Cornell (in one of the hard sciences). I worked on campus.

I really didnt see what Id call the best and brightest amongst the undergrads.

I feel sorry for your kids. You obviously have no clue what they will be facing when they apply for college.

Meh, Pepperdine and Loyola were set up specifically for rich kids not smart enough for real schools.

It will, but the extent will depend on what Vavic did with the money. Did he keep it all himself, or did he use it for the program? Did he use it to pay for his foreign players? I'm not sure just taking money to lie about a kid being a player is even an NCAA violation on its own?

It's been a downward spiral ever since Mike Garrett was fired.
