    Colleges should entirely be merit based and based on hardwork and the industriousness of the particular individual,any other way to get into college is an insult to the rights of mankind

    Nothing about this surprised me. And I don’t expect anything to happen to most of them. Look at the president. He’s cheated his way through over 70 years of life and has yet to be held accountable.

    Speaking nothing but facts. So happy this is out in the open. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Maybe just maybe America will actually be great.

    I recall a certain political group wanting “immigration reform” based on merit. This scandal exposed exactly what they meant.
