If others are right in their suspicions that Stanley Ann was a CIA ooperative, how much easier for her son to get in. Spending time in foreign countries as a child would make it much easier for him to blend into other populations.
There is even some site, can't recall the name, it is SOMETHING-cafe, and a Chicagoan named Skolnec or Scholnick or something had an article posted there years ago about BHO getting arrested in Russia.
I believe that the reason we can't get his financial aid records from college is that he was on a full paid CIA "scholarship."
Currently, it is primarily designed to hire minority and disabled students on a work study basis with a combined SAT of only 1000 needed to qualify. The student is a full-time student during the academic year, but works full-time at CIA during the summer at CIA HQ. I believe the CIA is just trying to boost their minority and disabled diversity quotas with this program, not find folks for forward leaning intelligence activities.
From the CIA website:
“The Undergraduate Scholar Program was developed, in part, to assist minority and disabled students, but application is open to all students who meet the requirements. The program offers unmatched experience. You'll complete work sessions during each summer break, increasing your knowledge and job responsibilities while assisting intelligence professionals and applying your academic skills.
“We believe in challenging our Scholars with meaningful work that relates to their college major. An IT major, for example, might be given increasingly complex projects involving sophisticated computer systems. An engineering major might help produce a piece of state-of-the-art equipment. A finance major could be involved in developing and analyzing budgets for a worldwide operation. A foreign language major might be instrumental in translating documents for US policymakers. As a final example, a human resource major could have the opportunity to develop and implement personnel policies and procedures.”
“Once selected, you will be given an annual salary; an optional benefits package that includes health, dental and vision insurance, life insurance, and retirement; and up to $18,000 per calendar year for tuition, mandatory fees, books, and supplies. You'll be required to work at an Agency facility in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area during summer breaks and to maintain full-time college status during the school year with a minimum cumulative 3.0/4.0 GPA.”
Financial need as demonstrated by the household income ceiling up to $70,000 for a family of four, and $80,000 for a family of five or more
