    If paying coaches to let your kid in is some sort of crime, what about paying parents to send their kids to your football factory?

    They should strip all students of their degrees who happened to graduate with any of these bad apples. WAY worse than $315 worth of sweat pants, imo.

    Is this really a question, though?

    I was curious and it is really hard to get into (13% acceptance) and its ranking has been improving. I would imagine whatever the best schools are in CA would be hard to get into just because there are so many people right there.

    There's a reason they call it the University of Spoiled Children

    IMG's wiki page is about 50 pages of fluff describing what they do, and at the end of it you think to yourself "so what do they do exactly?"

    It's like a Clinton Foundation for disadvantaged elites run by the Fyre Festival guy that survives by acquiring and digesting successful companies.

    you are probably right .. maybe punishment should be to watch Full House 24/7. did yall see there are two layers to this? one the fraud/bribery but the other is this guy they were paying for said fraud had a "charity" set up. so these folks were paying him then writing it off as a donation. FBI + IRS

    Do you think charities should be taxed? Asking for a friend.

    I didn't go to Tech, but from what I can gather it would be full retart to bribe your not-so-bright kid into getting the shaft ... :crazy:

    Fraud is any attempt to deceive. It would be better to owe the Mafia than owe the IRS. Those guys don't play. I am confused, though. Wouldn't a $100,000 contribution to the building fund for the Aunt Becky Library get your kid a favorable look?

    It would, but you give away millions with no guarantee that it’ll work. This guy offered a guarantee.

    Growing up around similar income brackets in Florida, I recall some kids placing a big premium placed on fairly non-prestigious private schools, over equally good public schools. I really did not understand it at the time and still don't. But I'm also a socially maladjusted nerd.
