At least that's the old-fashioned way.

However, if his name were "Cortez" instead of "Kushner," no bribes would have been necessary.

I really don't have an issue with people buying their kids into a private university.

Why am I not shocked that the indoctrination system is not just evil, but also corrupt? Oh wait, the two go hand in hand. Just one more thing that liberalism has destroyed.

The story I read said that in some cases, they hired people to take the SAT/ACT for the kids.

Some of the colleges on the list are public (UCLA, for example).

The, Obama connection to the Scam/bribery case....did 'they' help the oldest daughter get into college?

A college tennis coach who also served as the personal instructor for former first lady Michelle Obama and her daughter, Malia, was among the 46 people charged by federal authorities in a sweeping college admissions bribery case announced Tuesday.

And yet another libtard lacks the honesty to admit what we all see.

When is the last time you heard a Trump spewing self loathing pandering about white privilege?

They haven’t.

******* bunch a “white privilege” holywood hypocrites

So I'm being a fantastic friend by helping him keep track. The post earlier in this thread is the first in a week where he didn't use the word "leftist" which lead to a "0" leftist count. Now yer all up to speed, won't you join me in cheering for 30yr? He's trying extra hard but old habits are difficult to break (brake?) and he needs our full support.
Oh you misunderstand my little snowflake, I keep trying to figure out ways to increase them just to give you identity issues. Apparently the approach is successful. Living in your head rent free.....

Lets be real, this happens more often than not. It isnt just at elite schools. It's all colleges. If you're either rich or poor, you can go to a good school. If you're middle class, sucks to be you, because people assume you had all the privilege of the rich folks.

SAT prep is one way the rich get their kids punching above their weight class. And once they're in, mission accomplished, they will be set for life because nobody fails out and everyone gets good jobs based off the name on the paper, regardless of actual quality. If they can be the less common gender for their field, they will never go without a job (seriously, companies will hire female engineers to hang out and boost their demographics).

I don't come with any solutions to this. Assuming it could even be fixed is a big leap, theres a lot of money tied up in higher ed and things staying the same as they are now.

And that I have an issue with, because a public university accepting buy ins is them selling something that's not theirs.
