LOL, if he's so "brilliant" why did he direct to have his high school and college grades sealed from public disclosure. He's such a vile con man.

They said that Yale's soccer coach took a $400,000.00 bribe to convince Yale to admit a girl in to the university to play soccer, who did not play soccer.

The bigger problem is that poorly qualified minority students are unfairly admitted over better qualified white students in huge numbers, through affirmative action, which is clearly racist.

Bill Clinton claimed to be a Rhodes Scholar but never allowed any college transcripts released. Nor graduation records. I believe Obama did the same. Has anyone ever come forward claiming to have been in a constitutional class taught by Obama?

Not sure how you collate President Trump's brilliance with a desire for privacy Jarhead? My only concern is that instead of Hillary Clinton working against guns, hunting, trapping, sewing and selling fur, fishing and about everything I like to do. Trump's working to preserve and protect my activities in this country. I have a suggestion............ post your grades on this site?

Hallmark will probably be cancelling their contracts with some of their actresses involved with this issue. I am just glad I could get into UW Madison by earning my admission. My mom did not have enough money to buy the bike I rode for the first year.

Not exactly, you need free and standardized universities......no more 'elite' schools. That's probably in the green deal legislation somewhere.

In education as in all things, nothing is free, However, so-called free money is more often wasted on social engineers than the actual betterment of such programs when it is robbed from the wallet that earned the money & given to a person that never did the blood sweat & tears route. It is just as wrong when money is used dishonestly to advantage someone who never earned the courses, to begin with, and the worthy folks lose their seat to them.

I guess I don't see the problem here. It costs more to go to some U's, isn't that the same? Tip the waiter , get a better table? Nobody got hurt, just found out.

Creating a felonious charity to hide the money is a problem legally, unless we have changed our minds as to what constitutes a legal and morally ethical charitable foundation.

I'm wondering why the FBI thought this was their problem. Maybe the FBI should look into how the Congressmen/women are becoming multi-millionnaires?
We have the American Negro College Fund and numerous other programs funded by taxpayers who unknowingly foot the bills.
What's wrong with people using their own money to further their child's education? Now the FBI is concerned about ethics and fairness???

I love it when crooks, liars, scammers, and cheats get caught.Especially those that feel that they are above the law and entitled because of their money.I hope they get to spend lots of time with Bubba or Bubbette.

Close to a million people a year cross the border illegally, Catch and release, you bribe a college official to get your dummy into school, big deal.

Sounds like there should also be some tax fraud charges against quite a few of the defendants as well but did not see any listed. Lots of money changed hands supposedly as charitable contributions and I suspect it was probably written off as such on their taxes. And I pretty much guarantee the recipients of those payments did not pay tax on them.

After the bribe to get in is paid I wonder what a 3.8 GPA costs? Do any of those "students" ever go on to earn or do the lawyers in charge of their trust fund make sure they don't ever go broke?

Now you get to be critiqued. At Boston University Alexandra Ocasio Cortez graduated with a 3.68 grade point average. Does that make her smarter than you? No, she appears to be dumber than dirt and everything that's wrong with over priced liberal ivory towers. The whole point being that it's probably better to never give your enemy ammunition because they will just use it against you.

GPA comparisons are virtually meaningless without knowing the majors, minors and classes taken. They also do not correlate very closely with IQ.

The people who bought their way into schools would not have worked hard enough to earn the degrees. They would have been exposed in the process and either dismissed for poor grades and poor attendance or because of the pressure they would have dropped out on their own.

I have no sympathy for the people involved in these scandalous fraudulent admission schemes. By wrongfully admitting the unqualified people, they undoubtedly prevented those same opportunities from being available to people who worked hard to earn those opportunities.

The proper way to get into college and law school requires the drive, dedication, focus, and ambition to work hard in school all the way through graduation earning the top grades, score at the top on entrance exams, along the way be an outstanding citizen and make connections with the best people in the community to earn their respect so that they will write glowing letters of recommendation, and then impress the admissions committee with a great personality, sincerity, integrity, and charm. After admission, the student must continue to work hard to achieve and earn the desired degrees. It is then necessary to work even harder to develop and succeed in a highly competitive career.

The fakers would not have made It!

I knew a star college player. He drank more beer and had more chics then most I know. He never went to class and someone took his tests for him, just put his name at the top. Last I knew he was a cable guy driving a van in his hometown. Another full ride college success story.

Why didn't you pursue a commission? My niece started out as an enlisted Marine, got her degree and is now about to become a full bird colonel. Her dad, my brother was a E-3 Huey door gunner in Vietnam. I think I'd have a hard time saluting someone I diapered.

I've got to keep my mouth shut.

My theology degree came pretty cheap with my online resume.

Bless you, nonetheless.

Paper, paper, paper.

It used to be that a person could succeed on their own merits. These days those merits seem to need to be proven by some piece of paper.

I use more paper to wipe my butt, than I ever needed to drive my career.

I don't hold college degrees in high esteem, therefor I think if you can buy your way in, fine, Athletes and rich donors have been doing it for ever. I also believe they should pay the college athletes.

Its not just colleges I know people that have bought into union jobs, and other organizations got paid for years benefits never even show up for work. There is graft and corruption in every place in the world just plain greed.

Citations??

I also achieved GED College Level U.S. percentile scores of 74, 96, 93, and 87 on the four sections of the U.S. Armed Forces Institute Military test. Since I received 32 advanced credits upon entrance at U. of Missouri for that I didn't consider it meaningless.

Anyone else find it humorous that the FBI was able to pin a crime on a clean cut Full House star, yet are struggling to even pin a parking ticket on Donald Trump? Maybe cnn has it all wrong.
