Former school official on Kushner getting into Harvard: “His GPA didn't warrant it, his SAT scores didn't warrant it. We thought for sure, there was no way this was going to happen. Then, lo and behold, Jared was accepted"

Interesting window into what this whole bribery enterprise is about — it’s for well-off folks who know what the jig is, but who aren’t wealthy enough to use their billions to legally kick in the front door of college admissions. https://t.co/qnDVW6cRkW

The saddest funniest thing about this college bribery scandal? These kids went to the best schools, had the best resources, and they couldn't compete with kids who had nothing. Their parents blame affirmative action instead of the fact that little Jackalope McQueasy is lazy.

I wonder how many wealthy folks with kids in college are now calling their lawyers and asking “for a friend” about a hypothetical situation where their kid “might” have cheated on their SAT or completed their application with a donation on the side.
