An alleged SAT cheating ring has been busted in Long Island, N.Y., resulting in the arrest of seven students.

At least six high school students allegedly paid 19-year-old college student Sam Eshaghoff thousands of dollars to take the test for them, prosecutors said.

Over the past year, six students from Great Neck North High School in Mineola paid Eshaghoff between $1,500 and $2,500 to take the test on their behalf, according to Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice.

Perry should hire him and then he could denounce his “Texas Dream Act” publicly!

The article didn’t say how good his scores were. Does he do AP tests, too?

If you can’t achieve a decent score on the SAT on your own you are not going far in college anyway, why bother? Just ax’n

Many years ago a guy who was a college professor and a newspaper columnist wrote something about a then scandal of people selling term papers to students. While not condoning the practice he related that when he’d attended college the fraternities kept files of papers written by past fraternity members.

IOW, this ain’t nothin’ new.

I disagree. The most I got was 840 and I am an Electrical Engineer (BSEE - PE) with an undergrad in Finance (BSBA).

Must have been “decent” enough to get you into college. And that was my point.

As you probably know, Great Neck is one of those NYC upscale suburbs where there’s a TON of pressure on kids to get into the “right school.” Lots of $$$, little sense. This will assure they get into NO school, and ole Sam will be kicked out of whatever U he has been attending.

Many moons ago I took the SAT test for my brother. When the score came in they thought he should enroll in engineering instead of social Studies at the U of O (ya, he voted for Obama now regrets it)

Many years ago I was offered a considerable sum to take the LSAT for someone. Let alone that I wouldn't do it but the required thumbprint would have been tough to get around.

There's always a shot you could become editor of the Law Review and then a congressman, senator, and, finally, president.

Unfortunately you'll be able to do okay. Private colleges and even public ones are reluctant to flunk anyone. Professors are reluctant to give low grades because the parents will sue and the professor will get poor evaluations. Things have changed. Once you get into college these days you have to work hard to flunk out. Really hard.

Any idea if someone else took the offer?

Does this really matter? I mean once they get into College they’ll be programmed into radical leftists anyway who won’t have one iota of a clue about how the real world works.

Nope. It was someone I did not know who found out what my score was. I hope he didn't make it.
