Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday March 13th, 2019

If you read US national news is was hard to miss the story about the bribery scandal to get students into elite schools by buying their way in.  This has been going on a long time.  I just had no idea they were getting paid so much per student.   When my daughter was going through the recruiting process I saw that being an athlete gave you a HUGE advantage in getting in to Ivy League schools.  Especially if you had the ability to pay full tuition.  Ivy Leagues don’t offer scholarships and are purely based on need.  If you have a student that is good but not great and tests well but maybe not high enough that would normally get it, you combine the two and you have a big advantage over other students.   It presents a big opportunity for a coach to use the final 2 or 3 team spots to fill with pay to play parents.  Because a coach’s recommendation can dramatically improve the chances of getting in Ivy league schools.  They aren’t on scholarship so nobody really checks on the progress of the players. All the coach has to do is say they quit after one season and start it all over.  What you are reading about  will absolutely run deeper than just this one person.

Of course, having someone else take the ACT and SAT test are taking it to a whole new level.  As well as faking the athletic ability of an athlete.  The schools pretty much assume that the coach has done the research on the athlete and never checks all the fake info in their file.  There is already so much playing around with athletes, especially in female athletics, because there are limited scholarships.  Many schools are forced to find a student athlete that can either afford to pay the full tuition or is smart enough that they can come on an academic scholarship and play the sport.  They use the scholarships for the star players.  Give half away to them, and divide the others to entice other athletes.  When those run out it goes to the players mentioned above.  But there is often a few spots available that aren’t needed or they can’t fill.  So they’ve been selling them.

I knew it was happening.  Fortunately my daughter was just fast enough and just smart enough to get the combo package. I also felt that 75K wasn’t worth an Ivy league education for undergraduate. Maybe graduate school.  But I could see how the Ivy Leagues coveted her because she could fill roster spots and would have to pay full tuition.  At first I thought it was because she was a good, smart,  runner but I saw her friend and she was faster and had a 35 ACT but didn’t get in.  I can’t prove it, but I think it was because she came from a single parent household and would get a lot of aid.

In short, the system was ripe for picking and I’m glad that its been exposed.  Let the kids that worked hard get in.  Not the parents that worked hard.   Here are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD keep on keeping on.

  1. Shane, this is my first post, but have been a daily reader for over a year.
    Looks like also used to be a porn site (archivedotcom results). First registered in 2016…unusual for a family name I think. Unfortunate legacy for them perhaps….
    Keep up the good work.
