What would you think if a family were to convert to a particular religion purely for the sake of being eligible for a private school of that religious denomination?
Is it normally competitive? A bit excessive? Morally and ethically questionable? Hypocritical?
Do you think religious leaders are right to hand pick their 'applicants' if they suspect its not a genuine conversion?

I went to an all girls catholic high school, in my year for every girl that got in there were 6 who didn't. So the criteria to be selected got WAY past being catholic. It was first selected on that, then how long you had been catholic, if you went to a catholic primary school followed by if your family had a history of attending the school (if your mum and nan were old girls you pretty much get in)
So there were a fair few of that I know of that converted but didn't get in anyway. So bit of a waste of time for them

My brother in laws family did this. And my sister in law applied for a job at the school, and made a big show of being religious - attending everything - for a few months and then once she was settled in, went back to normal. It really annoys me TBH. It's up there with fudging your resume.
