    At one time we did have morals, integrity and real skill and we still do but there are some who buy their way one way or the other. I guess it's always been that way, remember the old saying, "Everybody has a price." But more people in my opinion are on the take these days than yesteryear as evidenced by our own congress, past Secretaries of State and higher. It's sad that our own politicians who we used to esteem are even in on the take. They are supposed to be the very best we sent to Washington but the current crop is a failure.

    FWIW, I'm a higher ed retiree. I wasn't in admissions, and I can't tell you specifics of what I do know because a)FERPA and b) I can keep a secret, but I can tell you that there's always a way to get a student into a program if the right people want to get it done. Usually it's done for altruistic reasons, but not always.

    It has always been that way, and it will always be that way. At least until we're living in AOC'S socialist paradise, but I'll have long since been turned into Soylent Green by then, so I won't care.

    Update to the above comment. Apparently the two daughters have decided to leave USC for fear of being bullied.

    Guess I had a premonition.

    They can drop out all they want but it isn't going to excuse their parents of bribery and cheating as well as income tax fraud.

    I want to see a comprehensive investigation going back 50 years with prosecutions of all where the evidence indicates that they committed fraud and/or bribery, investigations and validations of the academic records of all college athletes, and an Expose’ of all whose Criminal transgressions were committed beyond the statutes of limitations excluding their prosecutions......

    Wonder how many politicians would be caught up in such an investigation, and how long it would take for said politicians to shut it down .

    Rumor has it that one prominent presidential candidate, faked her way into a Harvard faculty position by claiming to be Cherokee.
