    Number 1 rule to get into college: Get good grades.

    Number 1 rule of the internet: Don't feed the troll.

    No.

    While coming from a rich family that might give large donations could certainly help, getting into a very selective college or university requires much more than that.

    I attended two Ivy League universities and did not come from wealth. In fact, they both awarded me very generous financial aid.  About half of students at the Ivies and other elite schools are on aid.

    By the way, I am a white person of northern European ancestry -- your basic garden-variety WASP, though not one born to wealth.

    That sign you keep posting means absolutely nothing. It's not accurate; it's not even authentic.
