GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) A Georgia college student is facing charges he stood in for New York high school students and took the SAT exam for them.
Six current or former Great Neck North High School students also were arrested on Tuesday.
Nassau County prosecutors say Sam Eshaghoff was paid between $1,500 and $2,500 for each exam.
Eshaghoff is a 19-year-old Great Neck North alumnus who now attends Emory University in Atlanta. He spent his freshman year at the University of Michigan.

He’d make a great lib president. I wonder if he has an SS number from a dead man in New Hampshire.
They don’t require picture ID and some form of verifying confirmation document from the school?
Hey! He is a entrepreneur! He created a job!............
I wonder what his scores were.
That's the only way I got into Joe and Emma's School of Truck Drivin', Hamburger Cookin' and Radiator Repair.
Shoulda paid more than $18.00.
I’m just considering the career possibilities. My score was 1510, in the old days when that meant I got almost all the answers right. If I colored my hair brown again, overdid my makeup, and wore a tank top and flip-flops, I might pass for a high school student ...
Or I could wear a burka and demand they admit me or face a lawsuit.
Very little, but he didn't buy his bogus SAT in Atlanta. He bought it in New York. I don't know what the percentage of 'North-of-the-Mason-Dixon-ers' is at Emory University, but it's extremely high.
Atlanta has also been one of the centers of Jewish-American life in the South since before the Civil War (that's not to say there was an absence of anti-Semitism; the Mary Fagan/Leo Frank incident took place in Atlanta). According to Reform Judaism Magazine, Emory University ranks #7 in the U.S. among universities with the highest percentage of Jewish students, and tied for #9 in total Jewish students among private universities.
It's an excellent university with a reputation as being a Southern enclave for Northern Jewish students.
Here’s a new job for old-time high scorers. Do you think that the wonders of modern makeup could make me look like a kid young enough to be my grandchild?
I don't think makeup and a tank top would help me none though. They'd just hand me a broom and mop and tell me to wait until everyone was done to clean up.
Love your tag-line, TC.
Have you seen some of the “before and after” pictures of supposedly beautiful actresses? It’s incredible what makeup can do!
1984. Some of my teachers mentioned that our class and a couple of years before us were a small cohort who had learned phonics and math facts.
I’m ‘barassed to say but mine was a time before yours.
I wonder if any of the teachers all over the country that have been caught cheating in a myriad of ways on the exit exams have been arrested or even disciplined. They too were doing it for money. This kid just learned what he was taught. (Not condoning it, just making an observation.)
Eshaghoff, a 2010 Great Neck alum, was apparently worth the money. Out of a possible 2400, he scored between 2220 and 2140 on the tests.
I would have gotten that one wrong.
He’s probably academically brilliant, but I would not hire him for anything. Ever.
I saw that, too ... that’s why it came to mind.
