I actually agree with Bostonians comment. If theres a subset of Ivy admissions that relies on infusions of endowments for enrolment, call a spade a spade. The reason such honesty doesnt exist is because those wealthy families who so strongly identify with Ivy status that theyre willing to buy it lack the self awareness to openly accept their progenys lack of genuine ability at face value, and the implications that carries about themselves. The value they get is plausible deniability to themselves. A rich, deluded idiot will, apparently, part with a lot of money to avoid reality.

What is to give light must endure burning.
