Q: How often can we look into the eyes of our children and say, "We are fighting and WINNING for you in the Court of Public Opinion"

      So forward this to your friends & relatives, particularly those in the Harvard community.  We of course know that AsAm parents normally do great things for their offspring at the micro-level.

                     We are Winning in the Court of Public Opinion.

As a Harvard professor, I'd like to thank you for publicizing the disgusting, money-grubbing truth about the z list, aka jared kushner's method of acceptance. many of us are sickened by our own university's policies and daylight is certainly the best disinfectant. for details please read Dan Goldin's "the price of admission." Veritas anyone?? And Drew Faust is at Goldman Sacks where she truly belongs.

When I was an admissions officer at MIT in the late 80s we were warned that we should not give any advantage to applicants who were children of or related to donors. We were told that doing so could jeopardize all of our donor's abilities to deduct contributions to MIT on their tax returns. And I was frequently asked what "the figure" was - the donation amount that would get a donor some influence with the admissions committee.

So the most surprising reveal in this article to me is that Harvard is allowing people who are supposed to be giving money to it as a charity contribution - from which they are not supposed to derive any personal benefit - to buy an admissions advantage for their friends and family members.

Has Harvard just jeopardized its 501(3)(c) status with that admission?

    Wow!  Just that title from WSJ's Editorial Board is sufficient to tell you that we are winning in the "Court of Public Opinion."   Be proud that we are beginning to fulfill our generational responsibility to our offspring.  Please don't relax.  Push on!  Help our kids & help make America "a more perfect Union."
