Unacceptable: College Admissions Scandal

Please join us and our friends at CAA Brooklyn for a book talk with Melissa Korn ‘07JRN and Jennier Levitz, authors of Unacceptable, an explosive true crime story of fraud, corruption, greed, celebrity, and justice in the cheating scandal that shattered the myth of meritocracy.

Melissa and Jennifer will share insights into their work writing the story about the largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice, which broke on March 12, 2019 and sent shock waves through American schools and families.

As verteran Wall Street Journal reporters, Melissa and Jennifer traced the wiretapped calls, covert payments, and blatant deceit that brought the feds to Beverly Hills mansions and Upper East Side apartments, their residents all inked by one man: college whisperer and ultimate hustler Rick Singer.

This event will be hosted by Terry Kung '94CC, '05TC, President of CAA Brooklyn and former Assistant Director of Admissions at Columbia University, and moderated by author and NYTimes journalist, Ron Lieber.
