Absolutely! Whatever happened to pushing your child to achieve?! Hiring tutors?! Taking away all their toys if they are not doing well in school?

Ideally, I would whip my child's ass, but the law prevents me from doing that. However, they would constantly know I was unhappy with their academic performance and would remain so until it improved substantially.

Cheating and bribing to get my child into school is stupid, because it only continues to enable behavior that is ultimately antisocial. This really does set my child up for failure. Not good.

Yes, but I'm shocked that what they did is a crime (I wouldn't have thought that federal criminal code would have covered such behavior). What they did was wrong and robbed actual deserving students of an opportunity to attend these schools.

How mediocre these corrupt, 'high-IQ' inbreds must be to cheat a system that's founded on the promise of their privilege and their elevation, above all other things?

yes, they should go to prison.

there are other perfectly legal ways to afford mediocre children places at elite universities. i don't find any of them ethical.

but, oh yeah, these aren't people from the First Families of Virginia or people with great-grandmother that were members of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).

how dare new money try to mirror the scams of the privileged, ultra elite, upper class white folks.

basically this is white people with the "right" breeding telling the trailer trash to stay in their place.

i feel no sadness for them. what they did was a crime and they'll do minimal time in a comfortable surrounding. it would have been cheaper for Lori Laughlin to just fund an archaeological dig in central america or endow a visiting professorship. same result for her daughters minus the indictment.

dumb white folks deserve what they get.

A teenage girl who did not play soccer magically became a star soccer recruit at Yale. Cost to her parents: $1.2 million.

A high school boy eager to enroll at the University of Southern California was falsely deemed to have a learning disability so he could take his standardized test with a complicit proctor who would make sure he got the right score. Cost to his parents: at least $50,000.

A student with no experience rowing won a spot on the U.S.C. crew team after a photograph of another person in a boat was submitted as evidence of her prowess. Her parents wired $200,000 into a special account.

In a major college admissions scandal that laid bare the elaborate lengths some wealthy parents will go to get their children into competitive American universities, federal prosecutors charged 50 people on Tuesday in a brazen scheme to buy spots in the freshman classes at Yale, Stanford and other big-name schools.

I guess. I can think of worse crimes of course, than rich parents wanting the best for their kids.

The system is already rigged of course. I don't imagine this is much different than admissions for legacy kids with the inside track and children of large donors to these schools.

I liked going to university and law school in Europe. The tests were standardized. The scores were contestable. If you got in, and did not make the grade, they kicked you out, and because the tests were all returned with a grading key, you knew it was fair for all taking the test, because you could grade your own exam with the grading key.

It made it harder for Dutch professors, because they could not just reuse the same test each term, since the tests and keys were released. Professors had to have multiple versions of the test and mix it up to prevent cheating.

Yeah...but 1 year maximum jail time.....It's really not that serious.....College is overrated so paying millions of dollars to allow your kid to attend a SPECIFIC college is stupid....You could have invested those millions into an apartment complex for your child but I guess they want their kids to mingle(BUILD NETWORKS) with other rich kids at these elite universities to become 10 TIMES RICHER (is) the goal.....Yes, Bribe is unethical and illegal and all that but it's really not that serious....They're trying to make this a big deal when the President was paying off Pornstars and what not.....Like thats worse than paying for a college hookup Laughing .....yet what jail time is the president facing for paying Russia to temper with votes?.......same stuff.....let them be...they just want better for their children.....and they went about the wrong way and got caught.....and I'm sure this stuff has been happening for DECADES.....I'm sure if they did a deep investigation, 1000s of celeb kids got in to IVIES and elite schools without meeting the requirements.....and the prisons will be filled with hollywood celebs by now.....shit....even Trumps kids don't seem smart to me (except Ivanka)....Only God knows how much Trump paid for his Children to get into those colleges and how much he paid to change those "F" grades into STRAIGHT As to help them graduate.....cuz a motherfucker like Trump will pay for some shit like that....Matter of fact, they need to investigate Trumps Kids to see what their Admissions records reveal....cuz I'm sure there is some tea waiting to be brewed......

Something tells me that these people took a rare and honest look in the mirror and realized their children would not make it on their own into college. Or, this is how it has been done for ages and ages. Either explanation would suffice.

In any merit based system all credentials must be earned.

It doesn't have to in order for you to display hypocrisy though. Again, you want 'says who' banter without names.
Also, burden of proofs exist with or without expressed guestions.

One, we are not in a court of law, so the need to meet the burden is moot. Secondly, you posed a question, and I gave my opinion on the posed question. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Code:
One, we are not in a court of law,


What's your point? Why did u bring up courts of law?


Code:
... so the need to meet the burden is moot.


Not true.
It's not the burden; it's your burden actually, as per your own text. Suggesting that reason and rationale are moot ideas is just the beginning of your fumbling here.


Code:
Secondly, you posed a question, and I gave my opinion on the posed question.


Does that negate your burden of proof? It doesn't, sir.
Moreover, this is a discussion forum where it's appropriate and expected to engage conversation. A discussion board; not an answer board.
Lastly, a response or an emotional reaction is not a solvent.
