Disgusting. Utterly and totally disgusting practice. I hope they get sued to hell.

Another example of shady backdoor deals going on in J-INC with J-logic. It is probably based on some stereotypical bias from the oyajis (good ole boys club) who like to suck their teeth at people. A lot of times there is no explanation because they really dont know why themselves. They just can't imagine it, so it shouldn't happen.

In July, Masahiko Usui, 77, and Mamoru Suzuki, 69, resigned as the chairman and president of the university, respectively, following allegations that they bribed a bureaucrat, Futoshi Sano, 59, in the form of guaranteeing his son's enrollment in exchange for a government subsidy. They have since been indicted.

Seriously, 77 and 69? Can't these old goats retire and let in some younger, progressive and hopefully female leadership?!!!

Waseda University is looking for a medical college to incorporate into rather than establishing anew. Waseda is a prestigious private university in rival with Keio University. Keio has a good medical college while Waseda does not. I wish Waseda will incorporate Tokyo Medical College into them on this occasion also Tokyo Women's Medical College too. They are locationally all close each other.

Whoever did this, sanctioned this and condoned this are utter scum and have no place in education, or any other responsible position in society. This must be illegal - the Department of Education should be insisting heads roll at the university.

The medical college believed female doctors often resign or take long leave after getting married or giving birth, leading to the shortfall

This is suppose to be a place of higher learning... idiots!

This is Treason against the people if true.

They should be dealt with very severely if so. I cannot fathom this kind of behavior.

Our only strength is our people and their intelligence and ability. Why on earth would you sabotage a ladies test?

Only very qualified or rich go to Tokyo U in general.

This is outrageous on so many levels it’s almost pointless to list them.

Can someone please explain to me why this isn't the TOP STORY on this site?? This is utterly scandalous and, if true, is a new Japanese low....

Yeah, it's a disgrace but it's no surprise, is it. Hopefully there'll be public outrage and the TMU will get sued from here to Christmas by students cheated out of a place at the university.

I'm a neurosurgeon and contemplated going to medical school in Japan while I was working there as a CIR for the JET Program. This news disappoints me greatly but I'm also not surprised. I'm also a mother but work full-time and love being a surgeon, mother, and wife!

Yeah, like this is any different than altering test scores of minorities to make them qualify in the US

I don't hear a single argument in this thread that isn't based on your feelings.

Yup, we all feel mad about this and are making our feelings known. Why is that bad?
