According to a recent BBC news report, the University of Liberia found themselves in a unique position when nearly 25,000 candidates failed the university's admission exam.
Those who failed the $25 examination were doomed by not having even a basic understanding of English. Well, at least they hadn't lost a sense of optimism. A university official said this was the first time anything like this had ever happened. Maybe so, but you gotta admire the $600 grand profit margin on an unprecedented event such as this. That's almost a better racket than Trump University, er...the Trump Gimme Your Money Institute.
According to the country's President, the country's education system is still in shambles following the end of a civil war ten years ago. Still a pretty good shambles when you have nearly 25,000 students trying to enroll at a university with 17,000 students already. Not to mention the fact there are fourteen colleges or universities within the nation.
Education Minister Etmonia David-Tarpeh will meet with the university to discuss the statistical miracle. Me, I'm waiting for the news there will be a Trump University - Zimbabwe campus. Wonder how much that admission exam will run (in American dollars)...
