College Admissions Scandal

Post by Pairofcats » March 12th, 2019, 2:57 pm

Is the College Admissions Scandal that resulted in the arrest of Felicity Huffman part of the same investigation that is plaguing KU and other Blue Blood basketball programs? The written stories use the same type of language about the laws which were broken. But schools are not being charged as they did not know about it. Wink, wink!

This is the opposite of basketball specific. They had officials say non-athletes were athletes so they got favorable admission treatment. They may have cheated on admission tests as well. The arrests were made from the same wire tap/sting that is closing in on Cheatin' Bill and has LSU already.

Boston College thinks of themselves as an East Coast College that is better than Notre Dame

so what's your point, if a school charges an exorbitant tuition then by definition it is prestigious ?? There are plenty of schools out there that have tuition that take one's breath away but don't pass the prestige giggle test IMO. To my way of thinking there are only a handful of prestigious schools , the Ivy's and maybe a dozen others, your universe of prestige may and apparently does extend to a larger sample.

The world of admissions and scholarships is about as sleezy as basketball recruiting.

However, is this worse than Pocahontas claiming to be Native American to get an Ivy League job?
Pocahontas WAS Native American but never had an Ivy League job because there was no Ivy League back in the early 1600's when she was associated with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia.
