想上哈佛?爸媽捐棟樓就可以了……不開玩笑,是真的!
來源:21英語網    日期: 2018-10-24

前兩天,有關哈佛招生過程中歧視亞裔的案件正式開庭。雖然尚無結果出爐,不過根據目前已公布的資料顯示,哈佛大學在招生中確實也存在著另一個令人意想不到的高標準:錢!

CNN:哈佛招生案件審理,把這所學校的骯臟秘密公之于眾



有關哈佛招生歧視亞裔的案件已經完成了首周的審理,有一件事也越發清晰:除了完美的成績和分數,還存在其他方法可以讓申請者在常春藤名校中獲得一席之地。

As a trial over alleged discrimination against Asian-Americans in Harvard admissions finishes its first week, one thing has become clear: there are ways to win a place at the Ivy League campus that fields a surplus of applicants with perfect grades and test scores.

家境富有,與校方能搭上關系;運動天才;非裔或拉丁裔美國人背景都會大大提升申請成功的機會。在某些情況下,申請者的家庭斥資上百萬美元捐一棟樓也是有幫助的。

Family wealth and connections to the school; athletic superiority; and an African-American or Latino background all significantly enhance an applicant's chances. In some instances, students whose families pledged over millions of dollars to fund a building got an advantage.

《衛報》評論指出,對于很多美國名牌大學而言,某種程度上捐錢進校門已經實行了很長的時間。有錢人享受精英教育的例子比比皆是。

It has long been understood that you can, to some extent, buy your way into many of the US’s prestigious universities. There are certainly plenty of examples of people with more money than sense being admitted to elite educational institutions.

《衛報》:什么方法可以幫你進哈佛?帶著支票簿和簽字筆的超有錢家長



《衛報》舉的例子正是當今美國總統特朗普的女婿賈里德•庫什納,并且還不忘調侃一番↓



庫什納在哈佛就讀期間分數平平。當然,這個可能和他入學前其父捐贈的250萬美元沒啥關系。也許,招生部門預見到,庫什納才是那個可以最終為中東地區帶來和平的天選之子。

Jared Kushner, for example, got into Harvard despite having a mediocre academic record. To be fair, this may have had nothing to do with his father pledging $2.5m to the university shortly before he was accepted. Perhaps the admissions office just had a hunch that this was the genius who was finally going to bring peace to the Middle East.

在本次庭審的過程中,還披露了哈佛校方的郵件交流記錄。

上周三庭審披露的資料顯示,2013年,哈佛大學肯尼迪政府學院院長給前招生辦負責人費茨西蒙斯(William Fitzsimmons)發了一封郵件,主題為“我的英雄”,大贊后者為來自慷慨富裕家庭的學生提供入學邀請。

A 2013 email exchange among Harvard administrators, for example, was presented at the trial last Wednesday. In one email (subject line: “My Hero”), the dean of the university’s Kennedy school of government commends the dean of admissions for doing a great job in extending offers to students with generous parents. 

郵件節選內容顯示:“我很高興看到你招進來的這些人……真的承諾捐贈一棟樓。而在郵件中,他還把其他承諾捐贈大筆費用的捐助者,稱為招生過程中的“偉大勝利”。

“I am simply thrilled about the folks you were able to admit,” the email says. “[Redacted] has already committed to a building.” The other people described as “big wins” in the email were connected to donors who had “committed major money for fellowships”.
 
還有一封郵件顯示,一位申請人的家人向哈佛大學捐贈了110萬美元,為他爭取到了入學資格。而在另外一封郵件中,一位哈佛發展部門的人員與招生辦主任討論他們大約可以從申請者身上獲得多少錢。

Another email made public in the trial talked about rolling out the red carpet for an applicant whose family had donated $1.1m to Harvard.There is also an email exchange in which a Harvard development officer and an admissions dean discuss how much money they are likely to extract from a candidate. 

目前,案件還在進一步審理中,預計將在本月底給出結果。

The case expected to run through the end of the month.
