College Admissions Scandal

News broke today about CEO’s and Hollywood starlets bribing coaches and admissions officials to get their kids into elite schools.

Over 50 people have been arrested in the scandal.

This is the tip of the iceberg. The problem is enormous.

We know many of you will have comments on this subject, so I thought it might be good to throw up a thread about it.

Post your comments here.

We keep coming back to this one, don’t we. Definitely, it was the tip of the iceberg.

      1. The previous owner of the Blues, I think, had a daughter who got in trouble at Mizzou for something. Less than two weeks later there was a building named for somebody in that family at Tiger Town.

        It happens all the time.

        1. Gotta admit, I’ve been around fairly wealthy people most of my life. Yet, we did the tour at Princeton, when Gunner was being recruiting for crew, and we went through the fraternity houses.
          Whoa…….. all I could see was dollar signs.

  2. Y’all – this has been going on since I was a girl and that’s a long way back. We all knew our leading citizens’ spoiled partying sons would get into good schools because of their daddies’ money. It was just a fact of life.

    Heck, one guy went to city schools, got kicked out, came to our school and had his Corvette repainted from the old school colors (black/gold) to our school colors (blue/gold) over the weekend! He cruised in and caused quite a scene. Married one of the cheerleader captains right out of high school – I was a bridesmaid. It didn’t last and he remarried a buxom blonde, divorced again and decades later, died speeding in one of his fast cars.

    It would be better for these spoiled kids to go to work with a construction crew or do farm labor. One wise dad I know, put his son to work roofing, landscaping, construction in the hot summertime – which made him glad to be back in school. He got a valuable education both in the summers and in school and has done well.

    1. When I lived in Westchester County, I had my brand new horse at a stable where the daughter of Katherine DeMille (divorcing Anthony Quinn in 1965) had her new Arab. Because of the divorce her mother and she were ‘shunned’ so Mom talked to Katherine, while I rode with Valentina. Katherine told Mom she was boarding the horse only until a stable and paddocks could be built and Valentina would be responsible for the ENTIRE care of the horse.

      NOW I realise why my parents refused to even hold the lead shank of my horse and I was responsible for the ENTIRE care of my horse when we moved to upstate New York a couple months later. Our Moms were PLOTTING! 😁

    1. I actually think somebody got cheated out of being on one of the sports teams by the “admissions consultant’s” work and filed some sort of complaint that led to the whole investigation. At those particular schools, that would be a likely scenario. Given the story, USC crew would be my guess.

  3. In April-May of his junior year (which is height of college recruiting for early admission, which has to be filed by August 1st of senior year), Gunner was ranked between #8-#10 for heavy weight crew on several websites. The flurry of activity, to recruit him, which ensued in our house was unbelievable. He was 6’2″, had the right wingspan, ERG score, weight, genuine academics, and a 1% ACT/SAT score. His high school was ranked top 10 in country… and he was a white kid from a southern state…. which was equal to being a lesbian eskimo on the diversity lottery.
    At first, I didn’t think they were serious.
    Then, I got a 45 minute call from the MIT head coach for heavy-weight crew, who was dead serious.
    My kid at MIT? On the heavyweight crew team? Rowing on the Charles?
    Are you kidding me?
    My eyes glossed over and I was hooked on the idea.
    My son was not impressed but agreed to talk to them all.
    Suddenly….. I started getting the phone calls, from companies just like Singers scam. The hook for most of them was $50K…… to start. Total bill would depend on a “variety of factors”.
    Gunner didn’t want to crew. He wanted to do ROTC and engineering.
    Imagine my shock when I tried to raise and independent minded son and he became independent.

  4. I think this is who they were really after. Now the question is who made the original complaint as the FBI wouldn’t just start looking into this.

    “Parents charged in the alleged scheme are accused of paying an admissions consultant, William Singer, a total of $25 million between 2011 and February 2019 for the arrangement. Boston U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a press conference Tuesday that Singer used some of that money to bribe test administrators and college coaches.

    “The FBI investigation into the alleged scheme was nicknamed “Operation Varsity Blues.”

  5. What does make me mad about this, as someone with a documented learning disability, is that a consultant would tell a parent to have their child diagnosed with one specifically to have the extra time for the SAT. Without the diagnosis, one of my sibs got a 770 in the math.

  8. The sad thing, IMO, is that scores are not necessarily indicative of ability or desire to do college work. SATs are worse then the ACTs – which actually do a better job for screening.

    As a foster child, (9 homes) I went through 10 schools before graduating from high school. Couldn’t complete half of the math on the SAT simply because transferring schools ruins the continuity – especially in math. But I could read, and while my ACT scores were average, they were top in Social Studies – reading comprehension is everything. Result: graduated 1st from my undergraduate college, and Summa Cum Laude from a top Nursing university program.

    It was all about motivation. That’s the key to success, that and the ability to read. Of course, my children grew up realizing mom believed that education was everything – the key to a successful life.

    Now you know a little bit about Lady P and why I might see the world as I do. Please do forgive my grammatical mistakes and those pesky commas. 🙂

    1. My learning disability effects reading comprehension, and spelling. By the time I made it to the SAT, I knew how to compensate for one, but not the other. Diagnosed at 22, and took steps to get around it.

      I ended up working for a local university with tuition benefits, and worked my way through undergrad. So, I now have a piece of paper that says I spent a lot of money and a lot of time in a classroom. Of all the classes I took, three, maybe four were the most beneficial: Latin and Greek In the English Language (phonics for adults), 300 level public relations, and freelance writing, which was also a 300 level if memory serves.

      College/university at the undergrad level is a branding process anymore. Practical experience mixed in with it is the better way to go. And even then, what a person really ends up doing may well have nothing to do with the original degree.

      1. Oh, I agree. I’m talking about college/universities of long ago. These days, I’d almost wish for knowing how to fix something than getting a degree. But, back then, degrees really did provide a real education. It opened the world for me. I have three grown children and I know what they went through to succeed. Daughter was disappointed that the Ivy League school didn’t take her, but the 2nd tier did, and she is doing just fine. Same for my sons. But they all degrees in useful subjects – math/science, not basketweaving.

        The think about reading… I didn’t want anyone to think I wasn’t sensitive about learning disabilities or dyslexia – I’m quite sensitive to that – I was just trying to make the point of what helped me survived a broken childhood and multiple schools. It’s more about survival.

        I attribute it to the caring teachers I found in each school – they can make a difference in a child’s life, and the other reason? Someone once told me that I was “Somebody’s Child, God’s.”

        Even in my darkest moments I felt Him – this isn’t about mysticism or church – it’s simply that I felt His Love which gave me hope. Still does to this day.

            Well, milady, I never would have guessed that you grew up in foster homes.

            Your story would be helpful to many children and adolescents, especially girls who feel lost.

            I have never seen a grammatical or spelling error in your comments or posts.

            Delighted to read that your children took your love of education seriously.

            Please do write your experiences down for them — and for those in foster care.

            You could change many lives for those ‘in the system’ who think they are useless or without purpose.

            I also think that your story should include how you came to decide on nursing as a profession. There must be a link between that and being in care. We don’t need to know what it is, but it is an interesting choice.

            May God continue to bless you. We are blessed to have you here at the Q Tree.

      by Edwin Arlington Robinson

      Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
      We people on the pavement looked at him:
      He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
      Clean favored and imperially slim.

      And he was always quietly arrayed,
      And he was always human when he talked,
      But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
      “Good-morning,” and he glittered when he walked.

      And he was rich–yes, richer than a king–
      And admirably schooled in every grace:
      In fine, we thought that he was everything
      To make us wish that we were in his place.

      So on we worked, and waited for the light,
      And went without the meat and cursed the bread;
      And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
      Went home and put a bullet through his head.

      2. Gail, I went to a 3 year High School with a boy (man) who did not graduate until after 8 years. He had an IQ of 185, sang the lead in our Choir that won the state championship and was very attractive. The summer I graduated, I heard on the radio that Jackie picked up a gun and blew his brains out in front of several friends. It seems so sad to have so many possibilities and to be unable to function at any level.

            I was so happy when they tossed me into the ‘A’ class with all the ‘nerds’ — FRIENDS!, People who actually understand me!

            I am no where near that high an IQ but my brother was over 200 and my parents had a really tough time with him. A really high IQ is no ‘blessing’ for a kid, especially if the schools and parents do not work hard at socialization and providing him with access to people he can be real friends with.

            1. The kids at Gunner’s Math and Science School were the freak geniuses. Still, we were blessed he was accepted. For a long time, he felt like the stupid one. He was more of a “jack of all trades” kind of guy. He kept talking about the kids in his school and I thought, “He’s exaggerating, surely.”
              No.
              First girlfriend he brought home had a true photographic memory, fluent in 4-5 languages, and skittish. Easily one of the top three smartest people I’ve ever met. She needed to be bubble-wrapped and sent to DARPA. I love that girl and am her “other mother”.
              Gunner understood these types, quite well. His dad is one and his best buddy is an autistic savant.
              Strange thing happened along the way.
              Gunner protected them and spoke for them. They had a hard time communicating. So, when a presentation had to be made, Gunner drew the short straw. Gunner is scary-competent in a personal interview or for a presentation.
              I kept telling him, “You only have to be smart enough to understand their concept and communicate it for them to normal people. Protect them, always, as they trust you…., but MANAGE the brilliance and you’ll make a fortune.”

      1. There is one instance, though, where this is fundamentally unfair. Some schools have to get rid of half their freshmen or sophomores in order to take in a bunch of community college graduates for junior year. These people may (or may not) be as bright as the people who got kicked out, but the real issue is, it’s a politically directed directive, not one based on merit.

These kids brag about. it. They do anything to make their spoiled entitled kids look good on paper. The ATLANTA teachers had to dearly pay for cheating, so why not these selfish rich parent, high schools, colleges, college board, etc. It’s about time that they are being held accountable for their actions.

    Are they condemning wealth? Privilege comes with wealth… are they prosecuting wealth and privilege? Because if they’re not, then how is wealth and privilege relevant?

    And why is the CBS narrative cherry-picking these questionable comments by the the prosecution’s clown-show that passes for some appendage of the DOJ?

    Anything seem ‘off’ about those numbers to anyone else?

    An entire business entity, plus a charity slush fund entity, operating over the course of a decade, and they only had 33 clients?

    Seriously?

    And if it’s supposedly 33 indvidual parents/clients, they’re paying (on average) $756,000 each?

    Or if it’s supposedly 33 couples, this company + charity had more like 16 or 17 clients who each paid over $1.5 million to get their mouth-breathing progeny into one of these ivy league dumpster fires?

    You could buy a wing of a university hospital or some similar legalized bribery for these amounts, without resorting to all the cloak and dagger (and, apparently, criminal exposure).

    1. I agree. I can think of very few scenarios where a student might not have known what was going on. One is if they took their own tests and the scores were altered without their knowledge.

      I found one article from 2011 about arrests of six students in New York who paid a guy to take their tests for them. The guy faced up to four years in prison, and the students, minors, were charged with misdemeanors. It’s not clear whether the law varies by state.

      We know about the 20 million donated to Harvard for Obama.
      And no one really thinks Malia got into Harvard on her own. Do we?

      1. Exactly.

        Hussein’s entry was paid for by someone (Al-waleed, a.k.a. ‘dopey’?).

        But if that’s illegal, the statute of limitations must have expired at least 20 years ago.

        As for Malia, I suspect no exchange of money would be necessary. Harvard types worship Hussein, and making special arrangements, gratis, for a little Hussein is the least they could do for their idol.

        In fact, Harvard would almost certainly have taken it as a personal affront if Hussein’s beard went anywhere else.

        1. David Hogg supposed victim of the Parkland shooting and anti-gun activist, got the letter 42,749 applicants hope to receive from Harvard: an acceptance letter. In 2018, Harvard accepted only 4.59 percent of applicants, roughly 1,900 persons. Once Hogg’s tweet that announced the good news went viral, eyebrows across the United States were raised in befuddlement.

          Hogg’s highest SAT score is 1270, and the average SAT score for admissions into Harvard is roughly 1480.*

  18. These universities should also be investigated. They’re just as crooked!!! The college board is a scam and it needs to be dismantled. But as a Christian, we all have to stand before the Lord one day! So, they’re not getting away with anything! It’s sad that to many kids are missing out because of the privileged few.

  19. Many of these kids whose parents are buying their way into colleges, don’t even need to go. They’re going to party, meet a potential rich spouse, to keep middle class kids who deserve to go out and bragging rights. Unfortunately, the schools are knee deep in this. The FBI needs to investigate the upcoming classes of 2020/21. These parents have already secured spots for their kids by making big donations already. What needs to happen is that a review of all the big donations, and which of their kids are related. This is so dirty that it’s going to be a part of our history forever. Investigating 50 people is just scratching the surface. There have been a lot of dumb rich kids who went to elite colleges and universities, all because of money! This is sad and once again the US looks foolish in the eyes of the rest of the world.
