Harvard Law School flunks out approximately one third of its entering class every year.
Maybe the Law Schoo does, but what about Harvard undergradate students?
I do know that approximately 65 undergrad students at Harvard (1% of the student body) either didn't take the SAT or have a score of less than 500.
For Harvard, that's awful. Even in most State Universities, an SAT of 500 is questionable college material.
Not arguing with you. Of course, this statistic is ten years old (found it when I was applying to colleges).
So do I
I’m not crying about itDid you go to college?
I went to beauty school, no student loans. I was fortunate to come from parents with money
That’s good. My parents paid for my school too.
Thanks for mho

InterestingThere are schools like Lake Forest specifically created for rich kids who can't get into Harvard or Yale
That's the case here too.Most colleges are public, the private ones are for rich kids who can't pass the entry exams.But as long as they can prove that their students will graduate at a level that is expected from the particular degree, then I don't see a problem with it.Unfortunately, the reality is that many of these private universities really just care about profit, and they do not provide adequate education.
I agree with you
Kids who got into college because their parents bought their way in are responsible for all that?
Drug cartels can be rich & powerful because people just keep buying those half-gram packs.
Plenty of college kids buy drugs. They didn't all get in because their parents bribed somebody.
My point is, bad things will become bigger & more powerful because of people keep doing "small corruption", just like bribing colleges.
Should quid pro quo be legal in the college admissions process?
"Should quid pro quo be legal in the college admissions process?" Of course. It always is...
Very true. It's only when it gets really blatant that people get caught.
So you think if someone's parents bribed their way in, they would be taking a spot away from a more deserving student.
Yes. It does.
But should it be legal if the college is private, not public?I think it absolutely should be illegal. Just wanted to see if anyone wants to argue the opposite.
Do you agree that it's pretty morally disgusting?
Because it takes a place away from a deserving student?
Yes and it’s just bad ethics
I know. But should it be? Or should private colleges have the right to accept anyone they want for any reason they want (as long as they don't violate federal civil rights laws)?
by the way, this is not new. The practice of letting students in in exchange for their parents donating a wing of the library has been around since the 1800s. It's just more blatant with this current scandal.
Yes, it should be
