I honestly thought that rich parents bribing people to get their kids in was a known fact and somewhat accepted?

Did people genuinely believe that ivy league admissions were granted based on merit?

Re: 500 billion dollar lawsuit against universities.....

my high school routinely had 10-15% going to the "Ivies".

back then, applications stressed grades and test scores. sure, there was a little section on "extracurricular" activieties which almost exclusively involved sports and club membership like the drama club or the chess club. Today, these kids submit books they've written; films directed; etc. The emphasis has shifted from academic ability AND potential to these almost impossible to quantify activities which say more about the parents' incomes than the students' abilities to learn.

anyway, 5 guys i graduated with and played sports with went to Dartmouth. All 5 were the children of Darmouth graduates. One was continuing the family legacy of unbroken addmission to Dartmouth for 100 years. Each graduated with a 3.5+ grade average and each scored at or above 1300 on SATs which had a 1600 max score.

yes they were "legacy" admits but they had the raw numbers which wouldve gained them admission if they had been a nobody like me.

The only schools that have legit smart people attending without any funny business are MIT and Caltech(amongst the top 10 or 15 universities). Incidentally, you see a lot more Asians and a lot fewer Jews at these schools than at the other top schools.
