    scheme(名詞)密謀;策畫

    Some prestigious US universities are currently getting involved in a scandal in which wealthy parents use cheating and bribery to get their children into elite colleges. For some cases, the scheme began as early as sophomore year in high school. With the help of William “Rick” Singer, the Los Angeles college counselor, students were given answers to college admission tests, flew across the country to take tests, or were asked to “act stupid” to be allowed for extended time on tests.

    目前一些美國名校正捲入一樁入學醜聞案件當中---富貴家庭的家長利用作弊及賄賂方式將其子女送進菁英大學裡。在有些案例中,此陰謀的策畫早在高中二年級就開始。由大學顧問辛格一手策畫的大學入學弊案,學生在考試當中得到正確答案、飛往其他城市應考或裝作能力不足,而爭取更多的應試時間。

    mastermind(名詞)策畫者

    The accused mastermind of the scheme, Singer, allegedly boasted to parents that he had gotten nearly 800 students into colleges through what he called the “side door.” Some students who have worked with Singer called the allegations “very mind-blowing and troubling” and didn’t want to comment.

    受指控的幕後操手---辛格向有需求的家庭吹噓,他過去幾年來讓將近八百位學生從後門送進名校。有些曾和新格合作過的學生表示,聽到這樣的指控十分令人驚訝以及困擾,他們不願對此案做出任何評論。 

    fraud(名詞)詐欺;騙局

    On the other hand, some students appeared to actively participate in the cheating. One example in the spotlight is Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, daughter of actress Lori Laughlin. She got into USC last year as a member of the rowing team despite not having any rowing experience. “This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud,” said US Attorney Andrew Lelling.

    而另一方面,有些學生則似乎對入學弊案知情,且有意識參與其中。一個十分顯目的例子是女星Lori Laughlin的十九歲女兒。她在去年以划船隊成員身分獲名校USC入取,但事實上,她一點划船經驗都沒有。麻省聯邦檢察官Andrew Lelling便直接表示,這樁案件呈現出頂尖學府入學申請制度腐敗現象日益擴大,財富裡挾著詐欺。
