Get Paid to Get Good Grades

Gambling and grades cross over in a new way at Ultrinsic.com, a website that provides students with a cash incentive to get high marks. The site takes wagers on grades from students, paying students top dollar for A's, a little less for the more likely outcome of a B average or better, and so on. To use the site, a student registers, uploads his or her schedule and gives Ultrinsic access to official school records. Ultrinsic then calculates odds based on the student's college history and the difficulty of each class, the topic and other factors. The student decides how much to wager up to a cap that starts at $25 and increases with use.
