  1. I didn’t need this to happen to know it was going on . When will people understand that the barriers of entry in all facets of life are just part of the way things are.

  2. The one paying 6.5M is the ultimate idiot. So if he has gone to the development office to donate 6.5M, his kid will be in and his name will be somewhere on campus.

  3. This is what happens when $$$$$ is getting more important the morality in a society. So many people knew about this for so long. This is the result of income inequality rising.

  4. Thinking about those deserving candidates who were ripped off from their oppurtunities by this illicit act really makes me sad. Hope they still are doing great wherever they are.

  5. The cheaters should have to pay the entire cost of sending the ones they replaced, to the college of their choice. Let them also give scholarships to 5 others who qualify, but were unable to secure student loans.

  6. 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️
