More and more..once you are in college..you keep paying and you get a degree. More and more profs do not issue grades and don't issue grades below a B or C. Even when I was in engineering school (50 years ago)..if you got to be a Junior it was unusual to flunk out and it was bc profs realized you survived the cut (they tried to flunk you out as a frosh/soph).

Only a wing nut would equate/compare Trump U with Yale and Stanford.

I think it was pretty apparent the theme of fraud was the common denominator, not the academic comparison of Yale and Trump U, or otherwise referred to as clown college.

You admit that trump committing fraud is ok to you, but you are outraged over this. Nice way to show your hypocrisy.

You're as far left as it gets on here and all you do is troll threads. You bring nothing to the table. When something happens in politics, this is your typical response, "...well, this is what Trump did blah, blah, blah. Why are you comparing Trump? Was Trump responsible for this too? It has nothing to do with him, yet, that's all you've got. I think your obsession with Trump is a bit creepy. You should probably go and talk to someone about it.



To everyone else, DON'T FEED THE TROLL!

Here come the lawsuits from kids who didn’t get in, suing the parents who committed the fraud. These wealthy families will be wiped out. Hilarious.

Local news covered one girl crying (literally) because one of these kids applied the same year she didn't get accepted. Yet she's now a student, possibly a grad student

Another point to ponder. David "ban guns" Hogg gets at 1250 on his SATs and gets in to Harvard. How the fuck is this possible.

It may not have affected you, but it will certainly have affected some hardworking student out there that deserved the place.

This story is hilarious. Parents paying for the lack of strength in their gene pool.

Think of the message these parents are sending their kids: you're to stupid to even try doing it on your own.

What are these kids going to do with these "Yale degrees"? It's not like they are going to put them on a resume when hunting for a job. Lol.

It's a way for the parents to brag about their offspring. They are never going to live this down.

It’s almost as bad as bragging that you speak two languages. Well, one and a half, actually.
