Many of these athletes go pro.
Athletes aren't a bunch of dummies who cheat to get into college. In fact, this thread is about non-athletes who cheated to get into college using athletics as a hook.
@goddess00: The cheating on the SAT and or ACT piggybacks on the enormous abuse of accommodations that a great many students receive these days....The percentages have risen dramatically every since it could no longer be noted on transcripts/applications. This was a huge mistake....if you get double time or even multiple days it enables rampant cheating.
If we care to avoid repeats of this scenario, we ought to be examining the weaknesses in our higher education system and how they were exploited.
