stupid semantics argument, but why is that not nepotism (as well as privilege)?

I would say it's definitely a form of nepotism

I normally think of nepotism as being more blatantly corrupt than what Nighthawk described.

You're not wrong, though.

That's legacy admissions. While not 'fair', it is at least, built into the system and everybody knows about it. But what these stupid rich people ITT did is obviously illegal and not part of the system:

Forget Felicity Huffman. Bribes aren’t the real scandal in US college admissions. This is.
https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/opinion/article/3001501/forget-felicity-huffman-bribes-arent-real-scandal-us-college

Read the whole thing, but here is a key excerpt:

Quote :
"At Princeton, for example, over the five-year period up to 2018, legacy students had about a 30 per cent chance of being accepted, compared to 7 per cent for all applicants. At Harvard, from 2010 to 2015, a legacy student had a 33.6 per cent chance of acceptance, while a non-legacy student’s chance stood at a measly 5.9 per cent – almost six times more difficult."


I more or less agree with him, at least in vacuum. Poor thing, he got hammered real bad in the comments at the bottom!

lol, so you're okay with the first way because it's "part of the system", even though it's unfair. But since the second way is illegal, you hope the participants "burn in hell"?

I said it is not fair, and that I agree with someone who is shooting down legacy admissions.

Read again, mate.

I always thought it was interesting as hell to me that the doctors in leadership where I worked all got their kids into the same med school program. I'm sure that they weren't paying off admissions and SAT test takers, but much like how knowing alumni and folks at a school can help get you in, its intrigued me that damn near all the doctors I knew had most/all their kids in at med school. One had like three or four kids come through the program. They probably tested fine and admissions isn't going to turn down the vice-dean of whatever's kid with marginal GPA and MCAT when the parent could probably make their life hell, but definitely don't think its an even playing field. Its not fraud; just nepotism."


Please stop trying to write so much. You suck. Break it up into easier chunks for yourself and for the rest of us. This shit is awful.

What a stupid woman. And she is a prof at a US school:
https://www.scmp.com/comment/insight-opinion/article/3008964/why-mum-stanford-admissions-scandal-student-yusi-zhao

BTW, watch the 2-min video about the $6.5 million-girl; what brazen nonsense... she boldly says on YouTube she got in through hard work. What fucking liars:
https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/3008787/hard-work-got-me-stanford-university-chinese-student-us65

They are now claiming they were scammed by Singer! They thought the $6.5 mil was a legit donation to help give scholarships to needy students!

She has been kicked out!

This is a good read too:
https://www.scmp.com/comment/insight-opinion/article/3009203/stanford-admissions-scandal-cautionary-tale-crazy-rich

Oh, and some non-cheating students are now suing either the schools or the cheaters:
https://www.scmp.com/news/world/united-states-canada/article/3001782/spurned-students-sue-us-colleges-over-admissions

Quote :
"In one civil lawsuit, Stanford students Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods said they were denied a fair opportunity to win admission to Yale and USC because of alleged racketeering, and said their degrees from Stanford will be devalued.

Singer and eight schools, including Stanford, were named as defendants in the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages."


Quote :
"Another lawsuit by Joshua Toy and his mother said he was denied college admission despite a 4.2 grade point average, and seeks US$500 billion of damages from 45 defendants for defrauding and inflicting emotional distress on everyone whose “rights to a fair chance” to enter college was stolen."


LOL, and this fucker:
