Mass College Admission Cheating Scandal

Recommended Posts

The only way A&M makes that list is if somebody got caught paying 100K to ensure their kid didnt get accepted.

I suspect one could bribe their kid's way into A&M with a 2-for-1 Freebirds coupon.

One of the cooperating witnesses, who has pled guilty, was the Director of College Entrance Exam Preparation at IMG Academy.


Now we are getting somewhere . . . If this thing gets fully flushed out in depos and court cases . . .

cool that UT was included in these elite places.  Notice A&M/OU are not on the list!  Hook'em!!! 


No bribe necessary when your acceptance rate is 125%

It is some pretty good marketing.

DMN saying elite:

 

Charging documents saying "highly selective" and "top tennis team"

Everyone listing us beside Yale and Stanford

 

This lady reminding everyone we are rich.

 

 

I applaud our marketing group's outside the box thinking.

 

No such thing as bad publicity

The kids have to be in on the scheme, right? I just can't imagine the scenario of moving your shit into Jester and your parents telling you "Bye sweetheart we love you, have fun in college, and hey when you get a chance go find the UT tennis coach and tell him you quit the team".

What’s nuts is aunt Becky paid 500k for her daughters to get to usc. It’s a private school. 

I bet had she spoken to dean of admissions offered a 500k check she could have had them admitted that route via legal “bribery”

Yeah, all of these universities mentioned use their bullshit "holistic admission standards" which is simply a way for them to justify letting in kids with 1100 SATs and 3.0 HS GPAs.

Reading the charging document, it seemed like the scheme was to get the kid listed as a recruit and offered a scholarship here, but then using that as leverage to get them in elsewhere, I think?  So maybe we didn't actually enroll any of these garbage kids?

I read they offered him a book scholarship, he took it, enrolled and then quit the team.

I heard about this a while back, but man this whole racket is much deeper and twisted than expected

How bad were these kids’ SAT scores that they couldn’t have got into USC, Stanford, Yale, or the other private schools with a healthy “donation”? So bad that even the admissions director couldn’t justify it, but not so bad they didn’t meet NCAA athlete minimums?

If this leads to a Women In Prison video featuring Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, then this entire effort has been worth it.

A 2.7 high school GPA means you only need a 730 SAT.  Crank it up to 3.0 and all you need is 620

Do they really have to get a scholarship to get reduced, "afolete" admission standards?
