The rich-shits-cheating-and-buying-their-kids’-way-into-good-colleges story is old news by now; but turns out it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

It did not help matters when a boy [from one of the most notorious cheater schools] who had been rejected from Georgetown emailed [that school] to say he had been accepted to Harvard and wrote: ‘Fuck you. I’m going to Harvard.’

    Frankly, I could see Harvard leaning in. I can think of a lot worse university branding slogans than “Fuck you. I’m going to Harvard.” Like: every one mine has come up with in fifteen years.
