Ultimately, they either play by the rules, or not. Do you think any of these parents would have refused to pay had they thought their kids not getting into the university of their choice had nothing to do with 'affirmative action'?

I would say the universities should formalise these arrangements and have a number of places for each course, available to those who would willingly pay a million, even if their grades are somewhat below par.
