Emails show Harvard favored
applicants with ties to big donors

New York Post, by Lia Eustachewich

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/18/2018 1:24:49 PM

Harvard University “rolled out the red carpet” for applicants with ties to influential donors, according to stunning emails revealed as part of a lawsuit that claims the school’s admissions process is discriminatory. The correspondences revealed Wednesday show that officials catered to certain recruits with upstanding pedigrees over others, including the student who received the royal treatment after his family gave $1.1 million over the course of four years. The men’s tennis coach fired off a thank-you email in 2014 to longtime admissions dean William Fitzsimmons, saying “it would mean a great deal” to see that student at Harvard.

Used to work for the Shorenstein, big time Democrat donor and commerical real estate mogul in San Francisco. He´s donated millions to Harvard. Needless to say his truly dimwitted son made it into Harvard law with no problems at all. Trust me, Doug Shorenstein is two bricks shy of a double digit iq.

Big surprise--not! The dirty little secret of all "exclusive" private schools and colleges is that they are actually a lot like private clubs. Money talks. The rest of the applicants who meet minimum standards just get thrown into the lottery--after paying the application fee, of course.

The endowment fund at Harvard has over $1.6 million dollars per student. (You can Google this information.)

Is there some reason that they should not be financing their own student loan programs?

I think other schools have even bigger per student endowments.

If their grading system is anything like their admissions process (seems likely), then that would explain the plethora of Harvard grads who´s arrogance far exceeds their abilities. Apparently Harvard has become a diploma mill for rich people.

There are unusual admits at most selective schools, private or public.
I once had an undergraduate student whose father was a judge. He enrolled through my university´s evening division, but took classes during the day. (That way, his statistics would not be included in overall student
quality indicators. Affirmative action admits are handled the same way.)
The student, who had to have been special education in h.s., earned a D from me. He came to every class, took notes, paid attention, worked harder for that D than my A students did. But he never spoke a word.
His father thanked me for my teaching.

Long ago, when I applied for law school I had to go to the law school registrar (who was actually the Dean´s secretary/office manager/assistant/everything) to pick up or drop off some forms or something. The lady asked me ´oh, you are the one the Senator called about, aren´t you?´ Being caught a little off guard by this, I said ´oh, did he call? That was nice of him.´ [I didn´t really *lie*, but I was pretty certain no senator had called about ME.] I don´t know that that assumption of hers (and the note she made in my file) got me into law school, but it sure didn´t hurt. I have wondered since who the senator DID call about and did he/she make it in even though I may have received the benefit of the call - if I did. So yea, string-pulling has been going on as long as their have been strings to pull. The way of the world!

It may not be news to people who just assume it is true, but it isn´t something Harvard or other highly selective schools have made public. Shouldn´t the students who are applying be told that a certain number of seats will go to the children of big donors as well as legacy admits? And how many. The chances of admission would be smaller than they already are. Maybe some students would decide to save the application fee.

This shouldn´t qualify as news. Athletes and legacies have always been given preference. It used to be you could enter Harvard if you could afford to. Today a top tier university or liberal arts college that admits solely on academic merit is unknown to me. Maybe MIT, Cal Tech and the like qualify, but not little seven or Ivies... Like any private entity, they should be able to admit, hire, and fire at will. The system -mostly- works today. Tough on Asians but the same thing happened to Jews when they 1) were allowed admittance and 2) on academic merit threatened to crowd out everybody else. I side with Harvard.

#18, they aren´t completely private. They accept federal money for a variety of things including federal financial aid and research dollars. And even private entities have to be forthcoming about what they are selling. Harvard pretends it is a meritocracy, but in fact, it is only partially so. The wealthy from East Coast prep schools are favored over a student from public high school in the Midwest--even if that student has stellar academic and personal credentials. Students without serious money or family legacies are disadvantaged in admissions decisions at schools like Harvard. And it is a double whammy if they are Asian.

I applied to Harvard a while ago and that was when legacy, contribution to endowment and major connections were REQUIRED. Clearly I was not admitted. I had the scores, GPA but no connections. I lived in CA, was a surfer girl in Malibu and loved photography and Shakespeare.

I also applied to Stanford. One of the students in my class had way lower scores, GPA and involvement activities than me. She got into Stanford. How...her daddy gave lots of money to Stanford.


The Ivies and other liberal colleges in the East Coast are all about money and legacy.

I know this because after I finished law school I worked briefly as a school adviser for college students.

When recommending certain students for admissions, the college/university would ask me what their race/ethnic back ground, what was their address (demographic question), parents´ employment, etc. All totally illegal.

Hello...are you not more concerned about their grades than contribution?

The admissions process is totally rigged. Either one is a minority or legacy connected.
Then you get in. If you are white male or female...everything is stacked against you. I have witnessed this,

The Guardian understands Solheim was asked to resign by the UN secretary general, António Guterres.

They are the advance line of the migrant caravan that Donald Trump has said is attempting an “invasion” of the US. But, as a 400-strong group of asylum-seeking Central Americans arrived in the Mexican border town of Tijuana on Saturday, they appeared more concerned with love than war. The splinter caravan – which is made up of dozens of LGBTQ+ people – was in celebratory mood as two of its members, 23-year-old Erick Dubon and Pedro Nehemias, 22, got married. The couple – originally from Honduras where same-sex unions are banned – tied the knot ahead of applying for asylum

Investigators are examining a work of art to establish whether it is a Picasso snatched from a Dutch museum in 2012. The painting, Picasso’s Tete d’Arlequin (Harlequin’s Head) was stolen six years ago in a haul of seven valuable artworks from the Kunsthal gallery in Rotterdam. The Romanian prosecutor in Bucharest said on Sunday that officials were examining a painting that a novelist said she found under a tree after receiving an anonymous tip. The work, purported to be the stolen Picasso, was given to the Dutch embassy in Romania on Saturday. Four Romanians were convicted of stealing Tete d’Arlequin

It was the great microchip heist — a stunning Chinese-backed effort that pilfered as much as $8.75 billion in patented American technology. U.S. officials say the theft took a year to pull off and involved commercial spies, a Chinese-backed company, a Taiwanese chipmaker and employees affiliated with Micron Technology, a U.S.-based microchip behemoth. Yet what Micron called “one of the boldest schemes of commercial espionage in recent times” is most notable because it’s not unusual. Beijing over the last two years has significantly ramped up its swiping of commercial technology and intellectual property, from jet engines to genetically modified rice

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

Patrons at a small bar in Pocatello, Idaho, were a bit confused as to why a stranger showed up intent on watching the Harvard-Yale football game one day in 1982. He tried to explain, but no one really paid much attention until he offered to buy all the beer. Had they been listening, they might not have believed him. He was only there because he received a cryptic phone call that consisted of just three words: "Watch the game." Still, the message was received. There was only one reason he could have received such a strange call: After four years,

Mirebalais, Haiti — Cervical cancer is a disease that Haiti cannot afford. And in most cases, it’s a disease the country’s broken healthcare system cannot treat. There is just one MRI scanner in the entire country of 11 million people. Radiation treatment does not exist — for any kind of cancer — because there are no machines. Cancer screenings and early detection programs are limited, and so is access to lifesaving care. In a country already struggling to manage maternal deaths and childhood diseases that have been largely controlled in other parts of the world, cervical cancer is nearly always a death

Peggy Noonan’s intense dislike for President Donald Trump undermines her credibility as a fair and balanced columnist: She cannot be true to her trade when she hates the objects of her pen. With the Trumps, she has lost all sense of balance. Her unwarranted attack on First Lady Melania Trump last weekend in the Wall Street Journal is plain ugly. In a column titled “Melania’s Misstep and Michelle’s Mystery,” Noonan declares her love for former first lady Michelle Obama after reading her memoir, Becoming.

TIJUANA, Mexico — Migrants stranded in Tijuana are complaining about cramped living spaces, exposure to the cold at night, limited access to food and safety concerns. The makeshift shelter they´ve been living in for almost a week is nearing capacity, and more migrants are on the way to this border community. More than 2,500 migrants, hailing mostly from Honduras and to a lesser extent from other Central American countries and Mexico, are staying at Unidad Deportiva Benito Juárez, a sports complex in Tijuana´s north end. Another 3,400 are in nearby Mexicali, about 90 miles away, according to the state officials.
