Documents published by the Washington Post reveal that the University of Virginia’s fundraising department has a nearly decades-old system for flagging applicants tied to wealthy or influential alumni or donors for special treatment. While the school’s Office of Advancement acknowledges a relationship with alumni and donors, they maintain that these relationships do not influence the school’s application process. Guest host Jonathan Capehart reviews the “watch list” at one of the nation’s most selective universities and explores what this meant for local college applicants past and present.
