Bro, what the #%!@ are you talking about?

Posted By: TheRealU
Date: Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 01:30 pm

We are talking about people who paid a third party to lie, bribe and cheat on their kid's behalf to get them into a school. How are you okay with that?

I don't think most have as much an issue with someone donating $XX to a school and their kids being given preferential admission treatment - we see that everywhere (and the argument could be made that the net outcome is positive) Hell, part of Whitt's contract ensures that his grandkids get their school paid for by the U.

UTE BC icon NEW: Here's an idea. Why don't all the outraged people that are mad that people who donate buildings and the like are getting under qualified kids into top universities put their money where there mouth is!

480ute icon NEW: At that point a donation becomes a bribe, which is frowned upon by every ethical segment of society. (nm)

UTE BC icon NEW: You think tuition is a bribe? Let me ask you this. Let's say Alex Smith has a kid who doesn't quite measure up academically. He offers to build a new weight room and football practice facility for the university, but he wants them to take a chance

TheJuggernaut icon NEW: Honestly, who's surprised? Rich people are using their money to get extra perks, in this case preferential treatment for their college bound kids? Shocking, just shocking.

pangloss icon NEW: I haven't seen any data on this, but I bet most rich folks are ethical, certainly Gates and Buffet, and would not be associated with an elitist institution. Let alone bribe people to violate their duty to provide honest services. (nm)

Puget Ute icon NEW: State schools in California used to be free. WHen I lived there grad school was largely free for state residents, and undergrad was EXTREMELY cheap in the Cal State schools. Having exhorbitantly expensive state schools is a recent development. (nm)

o NEW: I have no issue with kids of rich parents getting into schools as long as their estate is taxed 85% for every dollar past $5M when the parents die. (nm)
