Wow just wow, imagine not getting excepted into your dream school because some other kid falsified their college application and took your spot.

I wonder how these students performed once they were in these Ivy league schools. Surely the schools must have noticed a pattern of underperformance? If so, why keep accepting them?

Think of the kids that failed out of these rigorous schools because the transcripts were falsified. Those universities are no joke

A private school targeting black kids in a big garage with classes with no teachers and a 100% college acceptance rate and a pastor-like guy running the place; how could you possibly not realize something is up.

The guy dresses like Ronald McDonald and had a 5th grade vocabulary, no one thought that was suspicious?

People need to stop hearing "Brown. Yale. Harvard. Duke. Stanford. Cornell. Etc" and they need to start hearing "$250, 000 debt".

What I find laughable is that all these universities ACCEPTED those kids with the falsified records, which basically proves the "IVY" application process is a great big fat joke and the private college/university admissions system is the game people always said it was. I mean seriously? How does your admissions team reviewing an application, NOT notice an "undergrad" with a birth date year, the same as her own mothers?

I got accepted in my dream university but then i realized that i can't afford to go there even with scholarships.
So i got my degree in a community college instead, I'm still an RN.

This is so horrible - they cheated an entire generation of students out of an education. They ought to be sent to prison and forced to pay for each of these child's education and tutoring

These kids were abused and were not properly prepared for these schools, but you can't fake an SAT or ACT score, they had to get near perfect grades on that. I wish they would be talking about how that happened a bit more
