She Can Get Your Kid into an Ivy

Michele Hernandez boasts that 95% of her teenage clients are accepted by their first-choice school. Her price: As much as $40,000 a student.

Read about it in the current issue of Business Week.

If I had 40,000 to spare, I think that a donation directly to the college of choice might be a better way to go. I guess that the 95% acceptance rate would be hard to beat though...

Is this person the middleman???

Interesting...I just attended a presentation by Tom Doe last night, who is the husband of Mimi Doe. He mentioned that she was on the cover of Business Week and here it is on Carpe Diem a day later.

I've read the article. She also tells the kids what school their number 1 choice is. Therefore, she should have a 100% acceptance rate.

It's really about rich parents who don't have a legacy school that want their kids to have one. Money won't make your kid a superstar, but it helps (especially when employers only hire from ivy league schools).
