Right. And what college would accept just any free money?

That money would have gotten them into a TREMENDOUS Sorority at South Carolina.

Nobody can fix stupid. The best you can hope for is to milk as much money as you can from it.

So in that regard, hey, mission accomplished.

Wow, they really bought into the whole "America is pure and bribes are not looked upon kindly there" thing. I mean, it's less prevalent and obvious here, but they could have gotten their kid into Harvard by just giving the 2.2 million directly to the university.

For the prestige. A command of English (no matter how terrible) and education in a western university are HUGE over there. Since the children are a reflection of the parents, the parents look better because their kid is "gifted" enough to go to Harvard. Even if the kid is dumb as a brick and they bribe someone with 100 million US, they STILL look better to their friends. Its all about "face" over there, a little like "Keeping up with the Joneses" except they strive to be better than the Joneses. This family lost face by their son failing to get into Harvard, hence the lawsuit.

Not an example of Parents doing this but CSB time anyway:
A year ago when I was still living in China I was asked by a Chinese friend of mine if I wanted to make some extra money translating things into English from time to time. I of course agreed (good beer ain't cheap over there), and got my first assignment. The company was an elevator company based in Changsha and wanted me to translate their elevator catalog to English. I did so, and got paid well for it. I later asked my friend if that company was doing business in the US and that is why they wanted the catalog in English. Nope, they wanted it in English so when Chinese businessmen/contractors read their catalog they would assume they do business with westerners and therefor are more prestigious.

Except no.

I was asked by a colleague "When did American students stop going for their PhD's? All this foundational research was done in the 70s 80s and 90s by students with American names"

My Answer : "When Students from overseas started using the Graduate programs as ways to earn prestige and admittance to the US Job Market"

And yes, I will say this : The Students from overseas are very smart, but they also cheat like hell - and each in their own way

Actually, Asians ARE punished in college admissions relative to other races (black, latino). Many schools, especially D-1 or west coast schools, have "too many" Asians compared to the other races, so they don't admit Asians even when their scores are higher.

You assume scores are all that matters, they're not by far. Essay, extra curriculars, high school averages (ie: it an "easy A school," etc.), valedictorian status and so on and so on. biatch of an application to fill out really.

I knew one guy who, bored math genius with bad grades and sat scores, hunted down the dean of the Princeton math department and managed to convince him to give a letter of recommendation. He got in.

If those Asian applicants don't understand all of that then it may explain why they're not getting in.

Your point? Top schools take a lot more than SAT scores into account.

FTA:

but his complaint states that he received 800s on the mathematics, critical reading and writing parts of the SAT, that he graduated in the top 1 percent of his high school class, that he completed nine Advanced Placement classes by the time he graduated, and that he had been active in extracurricular activities as well -- serving as a delegate at Boys State, working in Costa Rica, etc.

He had a lot more than SAT scores, to the point that I don't see what he could have possibly added that could have possibly gotten him admitted to Princeton.

Read the article. Well, read the headline. Who needs farking articles when the headline writer does his or her job modestly and well?

This is a common scam which preys upon the naive and unwary who believe that somebody, somewhere can get around the system and will, provided you give them enough money to "fix" things. This belief is one of the trump cards in the con artists repertoire. It has been used by stock tippers, pardonners and "immigration consultants" in all ages and places. Unfortunately, that is not how the system works in Canada and the US, among other unusually honest countries.

WARNING: DO NOT PAY ANYBODY TO HELP YOU GET CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP. THESE PEOPLE ARE ALL PHONIES. TAKE YOUR $2.2 MILLION DIRECTLY TO THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT AND TELL THEM YOU WANT TO CREATE SIX OR MORE JOBS FOR CANADIANS. THEY WILL LET YOU IN, TRUST ME. THEY'D LET YOU IN FOR $350,000, A MONSTER HOME IN VANCOUVER AND ONE OR MORE CHILDREN AT SFU.

(THAT is how the system works in honest countries. Cut out the middleman and you pay less!)

And the best part, pardon my shouting, is that your children will get to wear expensive sweat shirts that say SFU on them.

It's a kid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Footnote: For parents, SFU means "Simon Frazer University", a hotbed of native american land ownership and right wing communism, convenient to Wreck Beach and major pot supplies. For the kids, it means, of course, Shut the Fark Up, I have a SFU t-shirt from Canada's nth best university! Canada has about 70 universities. The USA has about 16,000. All of Canada's universities are in the top 200 universities but none of them rank with Harvard in terms of costliness or prestige or for the quality of research that the professors are doing on your dime when they should be instructing the teaching assistants how to teach your children.

Speaking of expensive scams, why the Hell does anybody pay a fortune for their kids to go to university? Like lawyers, college graduates are all too numerous and only a tiny percentage of them will ever get out of court alive.

Or into their briefs, for that matter.

FTFA: "Many of the foreign students are shunned, made fun of and treated as 'second class" citizens at U.S. boarding schools due to their cultural differences, eating habits or other forces that make them 'different'....

I lived in a "dormitory" once upon a time. We had 15 13m (single) rooms per hallway. Those 15 people shared 3 showers, 3 stoves, 2 refrigerators and 2 sinks situated in about 5 meter of counter top. We got a lot of international students. In the 2 years I lived there I met people from Cameroon, Germany, Suriname, Thailand, Vietnam, China and Hungary. Most of them were friendly, open people. Only the Chinese were horrible. throughout the 10 floors, with 2 hallways per floor, you could ask just about anyone what they thought about the Chinese. They would overwhelmingly say that they'd love for the Chinese to gtfo. Why? here's a list:

1. They do not take out the trash
2. They hardly ever clean up after themselves (I have even been lied to when I asked someone if she shouldn't unclog the drain. It wasn't her she said, despite the fact that I saw her do the dishes while I was cooking. no one else used the sink.)
3. You will not see them interact with anyone. They come home, close and lock the door until they leave again.
3b. They barely speak English, let alone a bit of Dutch (when they have been here for (over) a year)
5. Ever woken up at 7am with the smell of frying fish?
6. Some of them will demand utter silence at 22:00 on a Saturday. In student housing... They either learn to live with it or move on.
7. I have never seen a Chinese go to the depot to collect the complementary toilet paper/garbage bags we were entitled to.
8. They will complain about fluorescent lamps being broken but they will not go to the depot to exchange it for a free new one.

So yeah, they probably do get made fun of in boarding school. In my experience that isn't because those evil, evil non-Chinese refuse to cooperate with the precious snowflakes..

Interesting point. If you're on the admissions board of a prestigious university that has a world-wide pool of applicants, you could probably fill an entire entering freshman class with left-handed, non-white valedictorian volleyball players if you wanted to.

So what's the "right" thing to do? Just take the best of the best, and let the racial makeup fall where it may? Massage the numbers so that the entering class has the same overall racial makeup as the United States population?

=====================

My alma mater had large numbers of Asian students: Chinese, Korea, Indian. The foreign born students were all to themselves, but the first gen Asian kids were more stupidly American than the white kids. That's the real beauty of America, it can take a 2,000 year old culture and undo it entirely in one generation.

Asians are punished here in California as well.

From what I understand of the issue, the University of California system is not supposed to consider the race or ethnicities of the students applying to UC schools. However, the UC system wants to help "under-represented"---no one uses the word "minority" anymore---students get in. So how does the UC system attempt to accomplish this?

Well, they have a list of "preferred" high schools, schools located largely in poor Hispanic and black neighborhoods. Students from these schools are given "extra consideration." However, UC does *not* keep a list of high schools located in poor Asian communities (yes, poor Asians exist). It's as if they forget that poverty and a dearth of opportunities exist for students who aren't black or Hispanic.

So if a poor Vietnamese family is struggling to get by, working 80+ hours/week to afford an apartment in an area with a higher quality school than the one they could afford if they only worked 40 hours/week, their kids will be punished, in effect, because they didn't send their kids to a poorer quality high school.

Those universities also argue that the diversity yields a superior education for everybody. It isn't just affirmative action.
 
2012-10-10 11:25:01 AM
Back in the bad old days, universities used to set quotas on the number of Jews that could attend (let alone Asians, non-WASPS, non-whites, women, etc.).

Then they realized this was wrong. But the result, of course, was "too many Jews". Being hard-working and valuing education, Jews wanted to go to university in large numbers. Of course, this was before everybody wanted to go to university, namely, before the invention of coed dormatories, sex, drugs and rock and roll.

The solution was to declare diversity one of the shining values of a liberal education. So they set quotas on how many people could attend from the cities and the urban states where most of the universities are. Thus, you would have a much better chance of attending university if you were not "urban" (Jewish), a New Yorker (Jewish), a Bostoner (Jewish, or worse yet, Irish or Italian). You were a shoo-in if you were from Iowa, eight feet tall, three hundred pounds and could understand the basics of football.

In those days, I might add "urban" people (Jews) dominated basketball. This ended when the quota for blacks (zero) was removed. Urban people replaced urban people playing basketball and in a few university seats, so the Jews moved to the suburbs and became White People in a huff. This was very shocking to their systems and they never fully recovered. Most of them dropped out and became hippies.

In the meantime, the unvirsities found that Jews were even smarter than they thought (namely, smarter than White Christians by a long shot). The Jews responded to the quotas like good sensible White People. They moved to the right neighbourhoods in order to get their children into the right schools.

This is why there are Jews in Montana. The other reason has something to do with the fur trade or something.

Any hoo, the universities could no longer discriminate on the basis of race or religion and so they discriminated on the basis of geographical location (as the banks did and still do). This did not work perfectly because the wrong sort of people can move into the right sort of place and it is a constant game of hide and seek to keep them out of the universities.

Meanwhile, the Asians arrived and like the Jews were hard-working, smarter than White People by a long-shot, and prized education. It was déja-vu all over again, to quote a famous manufacturer of what the British call Irish Bulls, namely sentences that don't make any sense grammatically or semantically except for the making a lot of sense bit in other ways.

Soon there was a quota on education for Asians and Jews. To counter the Yellow Peril, universities came up with another form of diversity: they insisted that students be not only diverse in race, religion, and geographic origin, but also in abilities, skills, talents, hobbies, sports, etc. They knew that the Jews had given up on sports when the blacks moved in, and the blacks had given up on dressing like white people when the Asians moved in (dressing more White than an Asian? unpossible!)

And so you have the quota-ridden university universities of today as the result of the abolition of quotas. Nowadays there is a quota for everybody (except legacies, white jocks, white fraternies and sororities, Christians, and of course, rich people's brats).

Next week: Why Democrats are more concerned with getting their precious snowflakes into the right schools, universities, kindergartens, etc., than they are with social justice.

The two political parties, of course, are exactly as bad as each other and in no why is one party superior to the other. Just like the rest of us suckers.

But just between you and me and this n-word holding up the wall, the liberal Democrats are slightly better at playing this complicated mindfark game than the conservative Republicans who are very often unreconstructed racists and old school, word. And, of course, the Blue Dog conservative, working class, racist Democrats who grew up behind Union and Government quotas, have the best (or worst) of both worlds because they get to be racist under cover and overtly as well.

So much for Asians buying their way into Harvard. Back in the bad old days, Harvard used to rank its students, not according to their intellectual attainments or marks, but according to how rich their fathers were. Yes, they really did. They simply did not have enough titled brats to form a proper aristocracy, so they did with the super-rich until something better came a long.

At school---at least, in the physics, chemistry, and math buildings, the only building on campus I ever walk into---I've been seeing lots of handwritten signs above sinks that say "Do Not Put Food In Sink." Even one of the signs explicitly says food goes into the trash and not into the sink. Is it because of the Chinese kids that these signs exist?

Sorry about the length of that last point, but I thought it would be interesting to explain what happens when you put the foxes in charge of the chick coop, the wolves in charge of the sheeple, and the lions of society in charge of your universities, government, religious establishment, etc.

DerAppie: I lived in a "dormitory" once upon a time. ... They would overwhelmingly say that they'd love for the Chinese to gtfo. Why? here's a list:

7. I have never seen a Chinese go to the depot to collect the complementary toilet paper/garbage bags we were entitled to.


That doesn't sound right. The impression I got from my Chinese (Canadian born, HK extraction) ex was that Asians will abuse the hell out of anything free. When we went out to eat and I took napkins sufficient for my needs, she'd roll her eyes at me, tell me I wasn't Asian enough and grab a huge wad.
