About the allowing it in middle school/ high school thing, I don't think it would be right either way. I don't know if this is for everyone (well I go to a private school, so I guess that's why it's different for me), but I had to apply to my high school. Now you (I don't really know who that you is directed at...) said that if this fund rasier was also in high school's, people would use it to apply to Harvard with an insanely high average. It would also be the same for middle schooler's applying for high school though, since they would have that 100 average to apply to the er "local Harvard High".

Anyway, my point, as awesome as it would be to have. It's a terrible idea. Unfair to people who work hard in the first place and unfair to those with less money.

I think I would laugh historically if some kid taking the test to get into "local Harvard High" hands in his test with a $10 bill because he's so used to it.

Oh Chuey I remember that so very well :D:

I would do it, only in desperate times.

It takes less than 10 notes to impress someone, more than a million to be remembered.

Anyway, I think this is a terrible idea. This would teach students that they can solve all their problems with money. That's not how the world works. NS:|

Since the issue has come up, there is a summer school in my educational district that is known as the "buy your mark" school. It is very well known that anyone who attends this school gets at least 95%. These are marks that would appear on your transcript and such and could be sent to a university.

Although not 110% or anything, many of the people I know do consider this buying marks, as getting, say, 95% in English is a task that is very difficult for anyone to achieve.

Ah, Safari's spell check has failed me yet again. (I spelt hysterically histerically, and it gave me historically as the only choice, and I wasn't paying close attention) :D:

NO.

That defeats the entire point of the marks system. Anyone can pass if they can shell out a bit of money? HELL NO.
