Chinese seek US college admission at any price

From CNN – in University World News.

Jessica Zhang, a 21-year-old Chinese student from Jiangsu Province, says her English wasn’t strong enough to fill in her US college admission form. So her parents paid three consultants US$4,500 to fill out the application, write her personal essay and compose teacher recommendation letters.

She says she’s unaware that her application could be considered fraudulent and even get her expelled, write Shen Lu and Katie Hunt for CNN.
