    Friends, if your kid is a lazy slacker pot smoking loser just like you then you should give them a top 20 college degree to make up for it. It is money well spent.

    Another thing that jumped out at me. The parents involved are quite wealthy, but not the *super* rich. They can’t just write a $15 million check to pay a legal bribe to get their kids in. They are products of what I call “fractal inequality”

    I spoke too soon when I said there are no track connections(though it sounds like USC coaches were not involved)

    "I applied to UCSD for college where my dad was a professor and asked him to put in a word for me. He did, and I still got rejected and he goes “you’ve learned a valuable lesson. Never ask someone to put in a good word for you if everyone thinks that person is an asshole.”

    Yeah, I was really heart broken for them too... pulled on all ends, unable to find the time to educate their children or instill in them a love of learning they are driven by forces beyond themselves to fraud and bribery to get their pot smoking slacker into USC.


    A very early and practical distribution. No need to rename anything..

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareto_distribution


    My own sentiment is that all of these parents should be able to get their kids into a university that is acceptable to them. And the price tag should be appropriately high. The market should determine these things. For every dolt son of Felicity Hoofmind that pays a premium the university can offer a scholarship to the brainy son of a laborer. Free and fair markets work.

    The kid should have just gone with it! show up to practice and learn to jump

    Not sure if i'll be in a financial position to pull off a scam/fraud like this 14 years from now, but if my first born son doesn't go into pole vault, I may just have to try this.

    Just kidding...probably
