Did Trump even graduate?

I mean we know how Trump lies, I'm just asking.

Trump went to a military boarding school at age 13. He went to Fordam for 2 years, could he have flunked out of Fordam? He transferred to Wharton college of the University of Pennsylvania, not Wharton Business college. Did he really graduate? I saw an interview with one of Trump's professors, I think from Wharton, he called Trump the dumbest student he ever had.

Is my idea crazy? Think about it. Trump is giving these schools monetary donations, he is paying to get into these schools. Were his military academy grades good enough to get him into college or was it his money that got him into college. While at Wharton Trump also worked at his family's business which would make it a lot harder to study and get good grades, no? The NY Times reported twice that Trump graduated first in his class at Wharton, yet school records show that Trump never made the dean's list.

Finally, isn't it dumb for Trump to have his lawyer send letters threatening law suits if his SAT scores, his military school grades, his Fordam grades, his Wharton grades were ever revealed? What's the big deal if he was only an average student? Could there be more? Just asking.

41. $100 says he didn't write one essay paper, and most are from different authors, different voices.

.

He peobably fucked over every one of the people he got to write papers for him.

Probably threatened or blackmailed into silence, since writing a paper for someone else can get you expelled.

21. yes, I've seen that as well

The only woman in the graduating class was summa cum laude, too.

(There may have been a few names that could have been either gender, but the only name that was almost certainly female was summa cum laude)

It was the end of the alphabet (maybe "M" thru "Z" ). Hopefully there were more women in the other parts of the list.

27. Those are printed up before the final grades are in

Degree award and diploma come later. You are usually handed a diploma case.

Still it is pretty foolish to spend much time with.

49. Depends on the school.

At 2 of the three schools I graduated from, it was an actual diploma and the program was prepared after grades were in (One of those is the bane of my existence now, because I am typically teaching 3/4 of the graduating class in a course that generates 10 papers per student to grade . . .)

The third school included a mixture. I actually never received that diploma because at the time they printed the program they had misplaced my class and believed I had one more to go so I got a diploma case. Once they straightened out their records, they apparently decided they had handed me my actual diploma.

5. What do we really know about him at all??

Only what we see him doing right now.

Finance and tax records: secret

Health records and status: secret

Educational records: secret

We don't know much about this guy at all. Hopefully now that there is a governing body in Congress, we soon will. Of course most of us knew within the first minute of hearing him speak that we didn't want him, so it wouldn't have changed much for us. But maybe for others.

15. He has zero problem inventing stuff. Trouble is we

are in the high information age, not back in his hay day.

Saw this with my own eyes. Melania, on her website, showing she graduated with an Architecture degree. You KNOW he made that up. The page disappeared and then it morphed into that she went for one year and then off to Milan to model.

Only the most extremely humble person would even think about hiding good grades. And he us the antithesis of humble.

Listening to him speak for a minute and it's obvious he didn't pay attention in school. His real education was in how to manipulate people, bully people, take advantage of people, and never admit to being wrong.

Exactly. Remember when Dubya gave a commencement address and joked about how he was a D student? His supporters didn't care one whit that he was as dumb as a rock as long as they thought he would be fun to have a beer with.

We have to stop thinking that there aren't plenty of stupid people in this country because there are.

who allowed Cheney to invent a fake war where hundreds of thousands died).

Yet, I agree, all he has to say is that he knew the left and fake news would criticize him if they knew. They won't remember he said he was a stable genius?

12. Yes It Did

BBA from Penn.
But, he was an undistinguished student, and did not get an MBA from that school.
Doubtful he would have scored high enough on the GREs to get in, absent a ghost test taker, which is not a stretch given who we're talking about.

24. Yup - people who have seen his transcripts say not bad, not good - just

mediocre.

But further up on this - he wasn't trying to learn anything that didn't relate to his wanting to be a real estate tycoon. The rest, he skimmed. He wanted to brag about a degree from Ivy League, but didn't care to learn anything other than real estate.

28. BBA? What is that?

As a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton Undergraduate Program, I received a Bachelor of Science, Economics (BS).

I am not familiar with that degree from Penn or that was what ever was awarded from Penn to students enrolled in the Business program.

Commonly used term. Sorry if I extended that to Penn & Wharton.
I know at least 6 people from different schools that have what is termed a BBA.
Again, if Penn is different in their terminology, I apologize

Trump was too stupid to get into the graduate school program at Wharton. In addition, trump did not graduate with honors. http://fortune.com/2015/08/14/donald-trump-wharton/

His school posted his graduate program that shows that he did not graduate with honor shttp://www.pennlive.com/news/2017/02/what_is_trumps_real_record_at.html

36. I'm sure you're right about that

I believe I read somewhere (maybe in David Cay Johnston's bio, not sure) that Chump's college attendance record wasn't even that good. He skipped a lot of classes, maybe even paid somebody to take his exams. During that time he was already working for his Dad so he didn't need a degree to get a job. Also he didn't have to worry about getting drafted, Daddy took care of that too.
