Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit and the Making of the College Admissions Scandal


Join us for a fascinating discussion with Cornell alumna Melissa Korn ’06 and co-author Jennifer Levitz, Wall Street Journal reporters who broke major developments in the story that exposed the college admissions scandal that shocked the nation.

From Penguin Random House website: In their latest book Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit and the Making of the College Admissions Scandal, Korn and Levitz trace the wiretapped calls, covert payments, and blatant deceit that brought the feds to Beverly Hills mansions and Upper East Side apartments, their residents all linked by one man: college whisperer and ultimate hustler Rick Singer. Unacceptable is a propulsive true-crime drama of greed and privilege run amok, set amid America’s most exclusive enclaves and prestigious institutions.
