Kind of a weird scandal. Isn't it perfectly legal to buy your kid admission by just giving a donation as they apply? That's the Jared Kushner story, right? Why bribe the coach?

Less expensive?


I think Michael was the one who said he had a pricing schedule for the parents of wealthy ne’er do wells.


Yeah, these prices seem lower. It's also possible these parents were unaware of other avenues wealthy people use. Just because you have money doesn't mean you're in the club.

All these top universities have huge bureaucracies, so figuring out how you're supposed to make your kinda-large-but-not-that-large donation isn't obvious. If Lori Loughlin, or another B celebrity, calls up the president of Yale, then she is going to be waiting a while before she gets a call back.

Remember the Paige Sports Arena at Mizzou? IIRC, the Walton kid was faking her way thru USC, instead of Mizzou

Kinda makes you wonder if they'll look into Jared Kushner's college application, or Don Jr.'s...

Did the parents do this for their kids (like Lori's daughter who apparently could care less) or for their own prestige ("my kid got into Yale...")?

Weird times we are living in.

That's above the board bribery and not illegal

Ok, so should it be illegal?
