Join us for a fascinating discussion with Cornell alumna, Melissa Korn ’06 and co-author Jennifer Levitz, Wall Street Journal reporters who broke major developments in the story that exposed the college admissions scandal that shocked the nation. UNACCEPTABLE is a propulsive true-crime drama of greed and privilege run amok, set amid America’s most exclusive enclaves and prestigious institutions.
