Book Interview – Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit & The Making of The College Admissions Scandal

Melissa Korn is a higher education Wall Street Journal reporter who has co-authored a new book covering the Varsity Blues Scandal. That book, Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit, & the Making of the College Admissions Scandal, is available July 21, 2020 and can be pre-ordered/purchased through Penguin Random House.

Smith and Korn walk through the entire scandal to not only tell the story that reads like a crime novel, but it’s important to share how the scheme actually unfolded so administrators can take preventative measures against future attempts at fraud and don’t become complacent since this story has quietly left the conversation once the pandemic upended higher education and athletics.
