Random Thought

One question occurs to me in this college admissions bribery scandal: what happens to the student that got in thanks to mommy and/or daddy buying their way in?  It’s a fraudulent admission; shouldn’t they be expelled?

Even if they had no idea what was going on behind the scenes on their behalf, they got in to Yale or wherever based on a lie.  Not only that, they took the place that rightfully belonged to someone else.

I say kick them out and let them learn what life is like in the real world.

  1. Apparently Yale agrees with you. Dunno about UCLA or USC or Georgetown, but the sword hangs over the heads of all the kids whose parents thought life for them would be unbearable if they didn’t have a degree from you name it school. For my part, we kicked the little bird out of the nest when he/she reached 18. College was up to them to apply to and get accepted and we’d pay for four years. Post grad was not included. How can you get a sense of competence, independence and self-confidence if mommy or daddy is hovering even past voting age?
