Jared Kushner got into Harvard after his father pledged $2.5million dollar donation

The scandal involving dozens of wealthy parents including actors Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman who allegedly paid bribes so that their children can be admitted to top universities has triggered renewed interest in Jared Kushner’s acceptance into Harvard.

Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser, is the son of New Jersey real estate magnate Charles Kushner.

In 2016, when it appeared that Jared Kushner would join the incoming Trump administration, the public took an interest in the circumstances of his college acceptance.

It turns out that Kushner, the husband of Ivanka Trump, was admitted into Harvard shortly after his father pledged a $2.5million donation to the university, according to ProPublica.

Daniel Golden, the author of The Price of Admission, revealed that Kushner was accepted despite the fact that administrators at his high school said he was a less-than-stellar student.

‘There was no way anybody in the administrative office of the school thought he would on the merits get into Harvard,’ a former administrator at The Frisch School in Paramus, New Jersey said.

‘His GPA did not warrant it, his SAT scores did not warrant it.

‘We thought for sure, there was no way this was going to happen.

‘Then, lo and behold, Jared was accepted.

‘It was a little bit disappointing because there were at the time other kids we thought should really get in on the merits, and they did not.’
