WTF !!! Over... ?
I guess this is why they are telling everyone to look towards hollyweird and the Admissions scandal there.
Harvard has different score requirements. Asians are required the highest.
I suppose Hogg claimed he was gay...
Hmmm, wonder who paid for that?
So in this case...it’s not his mom or dad who paid a million or five million to the college. Some middle-guy, with a 20-year agenda, is figuring a pay-off to the right entry-control members, will get the ‘kid’ into the school and he’s likely on some sports deal where professors have to go lientient on him because his grades won’t match the ‘norm’.
However, this is a private institution, and unless the Chancellor there (Catharine Drew Gilpin Faust) sees some hint that the story is going to get out....that’s about the only way that she’ll open an investigation and determine that someone got paid off.
It’s sad to see young David’s parents setting him up for social condescension and academic failure. If the SAT ranges reported in connection with the Asian students’ discrimination case are accurate, David won’t be academically alone at Harvard, but he’ll be deep in affirmative action territory. He’ll probably end up majoring in virtue signaling. It’s a bad decision by his parents. His score, while not exciting, is somewhat above average. He would be a fine candidate at a solid state university, where he could succeed academically on his own merits.
They want to make sure he gets elected to office or gets a high paying job as a govt bureaucrat. It’s a reward for being a leftist sh$$ kicker.
The $10,000 question is why there is no repercussions on Warren.... or Obama for that matter. No way this douche made the grades
Hogg won the Ivy League lottery. He was at the wrong place at the right time. He was also photogenic & charismatic enough to become the mouth peace of a very-visible liberal movement. Intellectually, he is likely a midget. Even so, look for him to get straight As and run for Congress afterwards.
In short: it’s all Political.
So did Odungo..
It appears that in the artsy crafty courses in most of our elite institutions academic rigor has been abandoned as a despised remnant of the unenlightened age before Critical Thinking. All students at Harvard are above average, all get the trophy, all get the pass to the good life.
About the same way 0bama did
William F. Buckley, Jr.
His mother was a BIG Hillary pusher. His fame is due to Mommy and friend (HRC).
How in the whole wide world is he......photogenic????????
No doubt due to his nasty vile attitude, but I find his photo unfortunate, and thats being kind.
Otherwise I agree with your speculations.
You are joking, right. Why would someone just because they are Asian have to have a higher score. That would be so racist it can't possibly be true. You forgot the sarc tag, right?
I guess another question is why did this marginal student even apply to go to Hawvard? Who told him he had a chance? It takes effort and money to apply to a college, particularly Hawvard. Why did he apply and when it’s common knowledge that Hawvard will immediately dispose of the application of any white guy whose SATs are below 1500.
I certainly didn’t apply to Hawvard, and I doubt any of Trump’s 60 Million or so Deplorables did (at least I hope not). What, exactly, motivated him?
Harvard is not a merit bases school
It is affirmative action
It is legacy based
It is “getting an interesting crossection”
I don’t think it has ever been merit based
MIT on the other hand...
While I agree that he will be competing against kids who are much, much, smarter than him, don’t be surprised if he gets a bit of ‘help’ while he’s there. Who’s to say when this crap ends.
Dershowitz, who taught there 50 years, was saying that 50 years ago a lot of people would flunk out, now no one does, and even getting a “C” is rare.
