ABC reports that a school administrator asked that Bardwil
donate $100,000 to the school, and in return the prestigious college
preparatory would offer admission to his son. When Bardwil pledged $50,000
over a five year period, he assumed it was a sure thing.
So when his son's rejection letter came, Bardwil asked for the money back.
He told ABC:
"I told them if they didn't want my son that's fine, but I'm going to
rescind my donation...And then that's when they told me that they can't give
me my money back."
