A naive question. Several times, in magazines and books, I have read that, for example, it is easier to be admitted to an Ivy League college if your father graduated from it. Lots of amenities in college are donations of former alumni. And there are perfectly legal donations to colleges, they need libraries, they need better systems. And there are courses preparing for SAT, ACT, GRE, MCAT, what not. 500,000 donation could be good for a library, or a study hall. Why did these actors/actresses/others need to get in cahoots with some shady organizations, unknown names, if they could be the official donors to the schools? Especially since UCLA is not an Ivy League school, and while SAT has a complicated scoring system, ACT is very straightforward. I mean, unless the kids were very stupid, a good tutor could have prepared them? In other words, why, instead of going the prestigious donors’ way, the celebrities chose the illegal, shady one? This shady foundation must have served the parents, the middlemen, and someone from the schools.
