But for some, this strategy worked. With a few token concessions — none of which compare to the rights the po

Rich Chinese parents also caught up in college admissions scandal

Paying millions of dollars to secure their children a spot at an elite college may

sound absurd to many parents, but some are willing to do this.

Nicole Shen, the Chinese mother of a high school student in Palo Alto, California, said she would be wi

lling to pay a pretty penny upfront to get her daughter admitted to a top-tier university if she could afford it. “As long as eve

rything is legal,” she added.Zhao, 52, was introduced to William “Rick” Singer, a college consultant in California and the mast

ermind behind the scandal, by Michael Wu, who worked as an adviser at the Los Angeles area branch of in

vestment bank Morgan Stanley, according to the Los Angeles Times. Wu has since been fired.

Two wealthy Chinese families have recently been in the spotlight and t

he subject of widespread discussion after media reports showed they paid huge am

ounts in a high-profile college admissions scandal. The sums they paid dwarfed the typical amount footed by US parents.

The highest-known payoff to date is the $6.5 million by billionaire Zhao Tao, president and co-founder of Shandong Buchang Pharmaceuticals Co.

Lovren celebrates scoring their fourth goal during the Ch

England — Liverpool delivered the greatest in a long line of famous comebacks to reach the Champions Leagu

e final on Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi’s Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to overturn a three-goal deficit from the first leg.

Divock Origi scored twice, either side of goals by halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum early in the second half, to send Liverp

ool into its second straight final and set up a meeting with either Ajax or Tottenham on June 1.

It was only the third time in the history of the European Cup that a team ca

me from three goals down after the first leg of a semifinal and progressed to the final, afte

r Panathinaikos in 1970-71 and Barcelona in 1985-86. No team had done it in the Champions League era.

The comeback was all the more unlikely given that Liverpool was witho

ut two of its first-choice forward line, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Instead, it was Origi — the scorer of the crucial fourth goal in the 79th minute — who made the seemingly impossible, possi

ble. And it needed some remarkable ingenuity from Trent Alexander-Arnold, who pretended to walk away from taking a co

rner before quickly spinning round and sending in a low cross as Barcelona’s players dawdled. Origi swept in the finish.
