They said that 10-20 years ago, it might not have been that much, but now (think 2012-2013) it'd probably take $500k min to $1M to receive favorable treatment assuming your child didn't fully qualify.

I'm sorry but I would say there is a 0% chance you would get anyone from an admissions committee to confirm or disclose that they take donations for favorable consideration.

You don’t need them to confirm or disclose. Just look at the named buildings, scholarships, fellowships, professorships, etc and chances are, the named offspring are graduates/current students.

I am in no way denying that this does happen. I am skeptical that you would get anyone to say it happens.

No surprise. Harvey Mudd is basically a scaled down version of CalTech, and like CalTech it is only for the very serious student that has no desire for the social aspect of college.
