UCLA - pay for admission

Pretty straightforward:

UCLA’s elite orthodontics residency program has violated University of California policy and standards governing public schools by giving special consideration in admissions to major donors and their relatives.

Hundreds of pages of e-mails and internal documents obtained during a months-long Daily Bruin investigation, along with dozens of interviews, show that the program and the officials at its helm developed a system of preferential treatment over the past five years.

Don't think I'd be too happy about that if i was a graduate or soon-to-be graduate - kinda puts a damper on everything you've done. Who will believe you actually did any work at UCLA, much less actually earned your own way in there?
