Guilty admissions : the bribes, favors, and phonies behind the college cheating scandal
Laporte, Nicole2021
Books
An unscrupulous college counsellor named Rick Singer preyed on the desperation of some of the country's wealthiest families-- deeply insecure parents who would do anything to get their kids into name-brand colleges in order to maintain their own A-list status. LaPorte offers a soap-opera-slash-sneak-peek-behind-the-curtains at America's richest social circles. The result is an examination of the cutthroat world of college admissions; and a parable of American society in 2019, when the country is run by a crass tycoon-- a world where the rich get whatever they want, however they want it.
