If I had just had money, I could have bought my way into those schools not caring if I had Ds, Cs, or took no courses to get in higher education universities.  Give money and get in. 

Here is a question.  Once these people were in school, did they flunk their courses - what was the outcome?
Getting in is one thing - staying in is another. 

Here is a story:  I applied to be a Counselor/Psychological examiner at a school in Dallas, talked to the Superintendent.  He looked at my transcript and said it concerned him that I had all As in my college/university courses.  I said, "If your child had trouble learning in school, would you rather have someone who made Cs, Ds, Bs in the testing courses test your child, or would you want me with As in those courses?  He offered me the job.

@Victoria33 it's hard to fail out now, except in the STEM fields where you actually have to learn something.

When I went for my associates degree I pulled B's and C's. After i got married and was working on my Bachelors it was straight A's. The assistant superintendent looked at my transcript and questioned the B's and C's I told him I had been young and stupid and was working full time instead of focusing on college. I said after i got married I had a strong reason to focus on my grades while still working full time. Two years later he saw the results in my students and told me they had made the right choice with me.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
