This March, federal investigators exposed the largest college admissions scandal in history. Dozens of parents and students were revealed to have bribed and faked their way into supposedly meritocratic, elite universities. As one of the accused schools, Stanford responded by hastily expelling Yusi Zhao, a student involved in the scandal, justifying the expulsion as something that “has long been our practice … [if] the student submitted false information.”
When she paid $6.5 million to an apparent college counselor on April 21, 2017 — three weeks after her daughter’s acceptance to Stanford — Yusi Zhao’s mother Xiaohong believed she had made a donation to the University, her lawyer Vincent Law stated on Thursday.
Stanford suspended a student for two quarters after finding that he sexually assaulted Sinead Talley ‘16 in 2014, The San Francisco Chronicle reported last week.
Stanford is “addressing” a Facebook post — authored last Friday by former Undergraduate Senator and incoming Norcliffe Resident Assistant Hamzeh Daoud ’20 — that originally threatened physical violence against Zionists. The case holds potential for disciplinary action.
