Is this any different than affirmative action, but for rich folk? In both cases lessor qualified students may gain seats in the classrooms. Lessor qualified students probably graduate as a result. Elizabeth Warren should be included in the discussion.

USC (CA) just announced that people named in the scandal will not be accepted and they will be looking at students already in the system, to see they were involved.

I have a hard time finding fault with a parent trying to do the best they can for their kids. When you consider that there are so many people with the money to get them the favors that they can, any of these parents are probably thinking that they have to do it too, so their kid has an even chance against the others. Doesn't make it right, though, and I think the person or persons setting up this program to make money should burn for a long time. The parents should get some punishment, but not as much as the perpetrators.

Apparently there's no real reason why William H. Macy was not indicted, along with his wife.

But how much of a real difference between "my parents paid $$$" and "my parents bought the school a building"?
