One of them payed a half a million. I’m sure that’s enough to get you in if you make that donation. It’s also ridiculous to be recruited for sports they don’t even play. At least pick a sport they play and say oops, we make a mistake scouting.
They’re also setting their kids to fail. There’s a reason why schools take students above a certain aptitude. If you can’t get in, you’re probably going to really struggle in the university.
I really regret not going there. The campus is one of the nicest I’ve ever seen. New and full of new technology. It’s even harder to get into since i applied about 9 years ago. The average SAT was around 1420 when I applied, now it’s 1450. ACT was around 31, now 33. I can’t say how great their quality of education is, but it’s no joke to get in. I think they have now only a 15% acceptance rate so that’s up there with elite schools.
I couldn’t justify that 50k price tag for a education though. Especially not now knowing it’s all pretty much the same outside of the prestigious name and possible net working. And it’s not even including housing, most likely a car to get around and food. That’s insane unless you have a hefty college fund for it. I think it was around 45k when I applied as NYU was the most expensive school I looked at with a tuition of more than 50k.
I went with a solid school with the program I wanted and a nice scholarship.
Well, I am sure that some “spin doctors” as we used to call them are making $$$ handling this “crisis” and trying to strategize, because these are people who just won’t “lose” as it’s all a game to them.
Fake tits, plastic surgery, fake grades, probably has a social media writer, cuz she prolly cand spel.
Soon enough, Jie Zhao’s younger son would gain admission and join the team. And Zhao, who never lived a day in the Needham house, would sell it 17 months after he bought it for a $324,500 loss.
The home sale may become the next chapter in the national debate over fairness in college admissions.
Zhao, who has lavished his largesse on the fencing world and on Harvard, knows how the home purchase looks. But he said it was not meant to help his younger son get into college. Rather, in a series of interviews with the Globe, he called it an investment and favor for Brand, the coach whom he said had become his close friend.
