Re: College admissions scandal in the U.S.
I think it is something more common than people realize and it has been going on a long time. I had a friend who was doing a Masters degree back in Scotland and he was confused by how the Chinese students were doing so well. He was at the seminars and they could not express themselves very well, yet apparently were getting the best grades. I think it boils down to the fact that money gets you somewhere. They pay a lot of money.

Personally I think the most capable should be in those places regardless of status.
