Justice Department is about to release results of an investigation into a long running scheme to get undeserving students into schools, including Yale. Fake resumes, impersonators taking tests, college coaches being paid to falsely recruit " athletes".
Yale, Georgetown, Texas are among the schools involved, as are a number of medical professionals. Parents paid up to$75,000 for impersonators to take tests. Fake athletic clubs were created to give the impression the students were part of an elite program.
The Yale Soccer coach recruited a"star" player who never played in return for two million dollars.
Some very big names involved. Who else has the money to pay $300,000- four million to get their kid into a.school

"TV actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among dozens of people charged with paying bribes to get their kids into top universities in a widespread college admissions scam, according to reports Tuesday.

More than 40 people have been indicted in the scheme that allegedly involved students gaining entrance to schools including Georgetown, Stanford, Wake Forest University, UCLA and Yale as recruited athletes — regardless of their athletic ability."

I didn’t realize schools like USC and Texas were that difficult to get into legitimately.

Why is this no real big surprise?

It is all a joke to those outside this little club. In one group you have mostly upper class whites but more than a few asian families dropping crazy amounts of cash to get their kids into the elite circle. The kids are just collecting activities at school to give a quantity that no normal person could do. All kinds of coaching to grind out that last 1% on the SAT and essay. All for this little game to fit in the keyhole just perfect.

Meanwhile the universities don't want so many whites and asians hanging around so they chase any minority they find and rig the system so they can get in without the school going before SCOTUS to defend discrimination based on race.

All the while once the kids get in to most of these schools they all end up with A or B grades in all their classes due to grade inflation.

The part of society enamored with paper laps it up year after year. Those of us who took the red pill laugh at them.

Honestly, I've heard that even Ivy League schools aren't as hard to get into as people think, it's just that most people can't afford them so that's most of what makes them "exclusive."

This is false. Harvard is cheaper than Boston University.

Who paid for Crazy Eyes Cortez to get into
college, she's about as smart as an 8th grader.
