#1 What about the University clerks and admissions people ? No one offers bribes unless there's a known history of it working in the past.

I feel this is just class vendetta playing out. The people being pulled through the self-righteous wringer are all probably white and unaffiliated with woke politics.

And why do well-off folks want to send their daughters to such a campus ? 1 in 3 female undergrads assaulted at USC.

#2 Genetic bragging rights ?

"Our daughter goes to Tech, she speaks seven languages with native fluency. She's great at Math and Science. She became enthralled with Advanced Multivariable Calculus in the 3rd grade. The CADD programs she developed led to an Oxford 'iRobot Roomba' summer fellowship in her senior year. I could go on and on."

#6 Many (most?) of our politicians got into the Ivy's via "legacy," that's to say daddy and / or mommy went there first and "donated" (your and my tax dollars) to alma mater. Loughlin and Huffman felt they could skip the legacy part and just send money. That was their mistake, and they would have got away with it but for circumstances.

#8 M,Murcek may be on to something. They got popped because they tried to skip the "legacy" thing and horn in on a private deal.
