If I offer $12,000 to Georgetown in my essay, will they accept me?

I really want to go to Georgetown for some reason, something about the name idk. It's really prestigious too, it places a lot of folks into Goldman Sachs. I like the elitist, upper class, white culture at Georgetown as well.

If I offer $12k to them in the essay, will they accept me? I also have a little bit more.

Thanks

I have no damn clue if that will work. But, what I can tell you is that you're already off on a bad path if you "like the elitist, upper class, white culture" at a school. Hope this post wasn't serious lol.

I do because I can fit in. Ok I'm being dead serious but it may not sound like it but hear it out.

"Yeah man I heard he dropped 12 large of his own money to get in." That can lead to creating amazing friendships. Next thing you know I'm friends with a dude whos Dad is a MD, etc etc etc.

I will have way more money by the time I apply, especially when I sell my car. Getting into G-Town is a guarantee into high-finance. I know people who rejected Ivys to go to G-Town. What's the worst that can happen? I'll offer this donation to all my reach schools (elite schools) and see what happens.

What makes you think anyone is going to be impressed by that? The kids you're talking about won't think 12k is a lot - that's how much a vacation costs. They spent more than that on SAT tutors, extra curriculars ect. every year in high school.

Jul 15, 2017

nah, not 12K, 12MM

Ok I cant tell if you're being sarcastic but no family is dropping 12mm on Georgetown. Unless the kid is from a family of F500 CEOs.

I think GTown will take my donation.

12K isn't enough

12K is nothing

Hey i'm asking if you can bump my new thread like the old one?

Jul 16, 2017

Not trying to be an arse. If you think that your 12K donation is going to raise an eyebrow to a school with a $1B+ endowment you may want to reconsider. Food for thought: I was lucking enough to leverage athletics to go to one of the top 5 ranked prep schools in the world and receive an offer from Georgetown which I turned down. I made friends with some great kids from highly respected families in the country, and none of them would consider such an act, or think that's how you gain friends at such institutions let alone anywhere. The ppl you seem to want to cater to are a dying breed and you may want to consider going another route. Also to be more blunt, knowing friends that went to GTown, you will not 'fit in' with that mindset. Not all rich white kids are assholes...

Best of luck man....if you really want to go to GTown, do not do that.

Smh. Quit looking at the bigger picture. Focus! They're a pool of applicants, all 4.0 schmucks with stupid adversity stories. Here's my application, ANOTHER 4.0 kid smh...WAIT he says he wants to drop 20 large in donations etc etc.

Also Gtown bball sucks idk what other sports they have. I know Ewing and A.I went there. Would've gone nonetheless but that's me.

Can you please elaborate on GTown culture? I heard it's privileged, rich white kids and I kind of want to join that melting pot. I don't want to go to a school with 20 different genders and races. Any other homogenous schools you recommend? I've heard GTown still has that breed and isn't "dying" as you claim.

Thanks! :)

Look at Hampden-Sydney in VA. All men's (read: white) liberal arts college that has a great alumni network considering how small it is.

Jul 16, 2017

I did my best. The best I can do is tell you GTown is one of the most international schools around. What you are seeking doesnt exist and really signals that you realize ppl like you are becoming increasingly irrelevant. The few gents I know, who have younger siblings looking at colleges dont have the problem you describe probably because they dont think like an ass-hole and/or they are legit. All I was suggesting was you are not going to validate yourself with 12k. Narrow or big picture. You are honestly better off writing some off the wall essay to show you are unique, but money is not it. Or if you really want to buy your way in...have pappa open up the real wallet and put your 12k back under your bed. Or explain what special skills allowed you to earn all this money you apparently have. Your nonsense comments on gtown basketball r not worth commentary. Nothing was but your thought process is pretty interesting/ridiculous.

Ok I don't want to go there anymore. I'm seriously not trying to be a bigot but I just do not like diversity. Are there any prestigious colleges that are pre-2017 GTown? I don't have a chance at GTown academically, 4.0 at CC.

Jul 16, 2017

I think you should go to UMich.

Wtf you must be trolling.... if u are, this is some low quality trolling dude.

Jul 16, 2017

I really do have $20k plus sitting my account. I really want to get in an elite college but a 4.0 isn't good enough to stand out because everyone has it.

Jul 16, 2017

Congrats on successfully trolling, the amount of people trying to offer real advice here is absurd. I didn't know people bit THIS hard on here, smh

Dropping 20k to get into a school isn't significant at all. I only know one girl who donated to get in but she was a legacy with a 4.0 GPA and a 32 on the ACT. The million her dad donated just helped but she already had a good applicated for the ivy she was applying to. The smaller your connection to the school and the worse your application is the more you need to donate.

Jul 16, 2017

1 million? WTF does her Dad do? Oh well then I guess I will just put the $20k into some dogshit stocks and watch is grow until I retire and die lol.

Don't give up just because you can't bribe your way into a school.

It's not illegal to fuck an old lady. Paying bribes isn't even illegal in most private circumstances.

Jul 17, 2017

That point

Jul 16, 2017

I know this is a troll, but do some research. Where are they trying to grow? Where are they lacking. Is their crew team bad? Get inrowing shape and call the coach/captain. Did they just reinvest in a new psych department? Pay for Jordan Peterson to do a guest lecture. Does their hockey team need new skates and sticks? Buy new gear and donate. FYI 20k is not real money to admissions (especially if your parents are paying tuition). You need to direct that money to a single person/small cause and hope that buys you favor. What differentiates you? Leverage that.

I would give u a silver banana but fker wso blocked it. I fucking love you man I never thought of this. The thing is, I'm at a shit CC with a 4.0 in some very rigorous courses (not fkn psychology or arts) but so many other fuckers have that so I need to stand out. What if I use that money to open a student managed fund?

ALso no one is paying for tuition except fucking FAFSA

Jul 16, 2017

Ok. Call admissions and schedule a meet and greet. Put your best foot forward, be likeable and sharp, ask lots of questions but don't be too eager. Find an honors student or alum and get a rec. Take a summer course or two. Get a PT job there. Network. Say you're going to study something unusual (I got into Brown because I declared Egyptology. Didn't go cause that place is weird).

Jul 16, 2017

This isn't how "donations" to secure acceptance works. It usually revolves around donating money to build or renovate a building at the school. Many parents will send "donations" to the school to try and get their kids in but it is hard to tell how much it takes because you don't hear about the failures and successes outside of the family who has a building named after them on campus. That is really the only ones you can say for sure that a donation had an impact. As for your 12 or even 20k would have almost no impact considering that yearly tuition at Georgetown is north of 60k per year.

EDIT: OK well what the fuck can I do with this $20k then?

Jul 16, 2017

If you have a 4.0 and good test scores you are far from "fucked". You seem to be under the belief that the only way to get into schools is with money. 98% of all kids who get into the top schools don't have parents who pay money with their applications.

I rate this troll a 3/10.

Look kiddo, there are highschoolers with a lot more than 20Gs to drop, even money they earned themselves.

College costs $60K/year. If you can cut a check for $250K or $500K, that's something. And some highschoolers can do that.

You can't.

Get back in your rented Mercedes and go home (likely to Staten Island), cheezer.

I was not afforded the same opportunities as you coming from a rich family. Now all the fkers I know that are my age are sitting on their asses binge drinking like the degenerates they are and they come from rich families and don't utilize what they have. Meanwhile, I was ambitious enough to work hard but also smart to make the most money efficiently but controlling my hours and eyeing out tax rates. Now I've invested that money and have made some good returns. Maybe Adcoms can see past my 4.0 GPA at my shit CC and see how brilliant I am.

I also don't drive a Mercedes and don't live in Staten Island I'm not a rich like yourself.

EDIT: University Champaigne of Illinois is a top school, in an expensive city with expensive tuition. Oh let me guess, you got a scholarship? Oh your parents payed for your tutoring?

I drive a rusty honda and went in-state because that was what I could afford.

There are kids growing up poor in Detroit who've already started businesses and have made more money than you.

Let me rephrase this in a way that greasers like you can understand. Your $20K donation Georgetown for admission is like your uncle Tommy giving you and your buddies free hamburgers and milkshakes from his shady Staten Island restaurant and you giving him 27 cents in return as a thank you.

What may slightly increase your odds of admission is if you sell your ridiculous gold chains and goofy sunglasses and up the contribution to $21500. (The extra money won't help but the non-ridiculous look might.)

If you're trying to go against diversity at your school, what are you going to do when damn near every business/firm on the earth is trying incorporate a more diverse workforce? For the record this has to be a troll, but lets just play along loool

Jul 17, 2017

12K is absolutely nothing you piece of shit. 120K might get you an extra look, but probably wouldn't do much for you either. 1M+ donations are when admission officers put you in a special pile, from what I've heard.

Jul 17, 2017

Fuck you such a mean shit to call me that. Now I didn come from a super privledged family who sent me to private school. Adcoms will be impressed with how I made the money with my disruptive background

The angry comments are almost certainly coming from non-target state school students who (like me) also didn't have the money to pay a bribe.

Here is my suggestion:

1.) Spend $7K buying a hang glider and becoming a hang glider pilot. If you have to be a troll, be an interesting one. It may even help you as a transfer candidate.
2.) Spend $2K on a Kaplan course and nail your ACTs or SATs.
3.) Give the remaining $11K to me. I wanna buy 2000 bottles of Yellowtail Wines at $5.50 apiece to drink and distribute to my friends in the power elite who grew up insanely wealthy (mostly blue collar divers and hang glider pilots). That $11K spent on high quality Australian wine will get me a lot further than writing a check to Georgetown will get you.

Gimme dat $12k an I'll turn it into $50k. Better than going to a college with a bunch of nerds that will be in debt.

I would pledge $100k. Just in the fine print dictate that the money could only be earmarked for paying for your tuition, books, living expenses etc. and is not applicable to any other fund.

That way you paying your tuition, etc. sounds like an act of charity :D. Not for profits cannot use your pledges funds for anything else if you expressly specify what they are intended for :D.
