With the help of his friend Joe Shapiro taking his SATs and his brother’s friend James Nolan’s influence at the school, Donald Trump transfers to the University of Pennsylvania to attend the Wharton School in the summer of 1966.
“He called me and said, ‘You remember my brother Donald?’ Which I didn’t,” Nolan, 81, said in an interview with The Washington Post. “He said, ‘He’s at Fordham and he would like to transfer to Wharton. Will you interview him?’ I was happy to do that.”
Soon, Donald Trump arrived at Penn for the interview, accompanied by his father, Fred Trump Sr., who sought to “ingratiate” himself, Nolan said.
