Nothing to see here, just your typical 'Rich Liberal Privilege'. Pairs well with the other common Liberal Elite mantra of 'Rules for the, not for me'.

This is what happens when you make educational institutions businesses rather than state fund them. Once they have to make money, money can corrupt their principles.

What about politicians like warren who lied about her ethnicity to get into college or pretty much every other aspect of her life?

So rich kids bought their way in with dollars and non-Asian minorities bought their way in with white guilt bucks. What's the difference?

All that cheating to get into university and the only thing they learn is how to burn down the campus and hide in their safe spaces. This is what future society will look like.

Ok no more BS about how "affirmative action" is so unfair when these rich white pigs are gaming this broken system. School should be easily available to all. Government should invest in education as a national security issue. Those growing their potential and knowledge in school are not joining gangs and stealing cars.

Bet their kids were taking up social justice and feminist courses. Paying all that money just to get a grievance arts degree.

College is such a joke now. Any ideas on how to come up with better filter criteria for potential employees would be appreciated. The return on investment won't be there in the near future.

At the end of the article it says there's no evidence the students knew... SAT & ACT score they didn't earn? Sports teams they were never on and then never participated in at univ? Photos taken in gear of sports they didn't do? and in at least one case their head photoshopped onto someone else's body aka Oprah on TV Guide? I call BULLSHIT! I'd bet most of them knew.

Most colleges have become 13th grade, just an extension of high school. Overpriced, devalued and worthless.

So, they should probably charge another House committee with investigating if this is how Trump got into Wharton Business School. First, they need to subpoena his grades from high school and Fordham U.

I read somewhere else that Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia J has been on 'Girls Gone Wild'. Matches up with her wild party girl persona that she said on her Instagram that she was looking to experience in college.
