What total scumbags- fleecing the poor and hopeful to benefit the rich and greedy who do nothing to benefit anyone at all. Celebrities, notables, public figures- it would only be time until your evil has been unearthed. These people have no moral compass, have no integrity, and instead of using their wealth and power to benefit others, they spread their greed spawning their own kind and the cycle is reborn. It makes me upset and despicable that these type of people did this. I heard on the radio some of these kids who were sent to these prestigious schools on to make comments about how they didn't care about going to school and only attending to experience the partying scene. Hearing that made me want to puke.
