Education / Re: $400k to get into Yale

This thread I want to say is about cheating, pay someone to write an essay for you potentially, altering documents/photos, fake test scores, tax fraud (expense for college prep), connections to get into college

The question is why spend that much effort to get into that school.  The answer is in the potential benefits from attending and graduating from the school.

Better schools offer better potential benefits.  But ultimately it's still up to the student to make use of social networks/alumni networks, and the degree to get foot through the door to a lifetime of benefits.

Hmm ... the privilege and support system that got many of these people in, also exists to get them plum jobs after graduation. In many cases the doors were already “open” so to speak

What one should look at is students from non privileged backgrounds and how did they end up doing in these elite colleges compared to those who already come from access.

“NBC article:Dr. Dre deletes post about daughter's acceptance to USC after $70M donation resurfaces

My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!" the rapper wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post.

Hip hop legend Dr. Dre deleted an Instagram post about his daughter getting into the University of Southern California without "jail time" after news of him donating $70 million to the school in 2013 resurfaced.

By Sunday evening, the rapper and founder of Beats by Dre had deleted his post after social media users found that he and producer Jimmy lovine made a $70 million donation in 2013 to the school for the creation of the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.

The prestigious private university is among a number of schools involved in the $25 million college admissions scandal which focused on getting students admitted to elite universities as recruited athletes, regardless of their athletic abilities, and helping potential students cheat on their college exams, according to the March 12 indictment.”

Perhaps I wasn’t paying to much attention but the are essentially all the same floor plan. Our house is 3000 sq ft and have the same number of rooms, even a formal dining room. Not sure why it’s so hard to get a little more creative with floor plans. With some innovation perhaps people would be willing to buy these. At upwards of 500/sq ft I can’t see these selling well at all

These floor plans are well selected which have been tested by the market. It is just too costly to test the market with new floor plans.

The floor plan in and of itself is a great floor plan. I have pretty much the same floor plan. The problem is the value. At some point larger rooms become wasted space. Our great room is pretty large and already feels like wasted space, same thing in our master bedroom (and bath and closet). Our secondary bedrooms are just the right size, any bigger and they would start venturing into wasted space land.

kB already has a quality perception. And trying to get $500/sq ft. As the quote goes, “good luck” (in Albanian accent)
