Should contribution for university entrance be accepted?
University entrance system in the U.S is quite different from the system in Korea. In Korea, the grades in the secondary school and scores of university entrance test are essential, and universities doesn't really care
about applicant's character or activity in community. In the U.S, however, academic accomplishment in high school is important, but universities also consider many other criteria, such as community involvement, leadership
and distinction in extracurricular activities, and work experience. There are many ways for students in the U.S applying for universities even though they are not qualified in terms of scores on entrance test.
Contributory enrollment is a special enrollment which accepts students based on their financial contributions. Because Korean society tends to emphasize an academic clique, and an academic clique regards as a criteria of one's success , the contributory enrollment system can be perilous in Korea.
