I wonder if this could help solve the college admissions problem. 😊 If this really has been an ongoing problem, colleges should openly set aside 'x' number of spots open to wealthy families who choose to use $ donations as leverage. Everyone else gets in on their own merit. 1) everyone knows about it, no big deal 2) wealthy families can compete among themselves 2) Or - would wealthy families & their kids want to be known for getting in through that program? It might even discourage it from happening at all. I'm sure there are holes in that idea, just a thought.

Maybe Lori Loughlin can get a role playing a stripper or some sex toy that steals men's wallets or goes out with them for money

I’m pretty sure there’s enough evidence and coverage to verify this. I really hate how to say “alleged” on stories that go against your political bias. I’ve seen it time and time again from CNN. I’m pretty sure they never used the word “allegedly/alleged” with the Russian collusion conspiracy.

Come one everyone in the royal families of Europe have been doing this since colleges were first being built. Take a bit of time to look at the British royal family and their education history. You will see people who never should have been able to go to Cambridge University or Oxford University some would even question if they made it through high school but they wind up in the best universities. The rich have been paying bribes or donating to build a whole new building or wing at a university in exchange for their kids to get in forever. To think this is something new is a joke. This has been going on ever since these elite colleges were first built how do you think they even got built in the first place. Wealthy individuals wanted to have a great university to send their offspring to over the years generation after generation so they paid for these universities to be built relatively close by their family's large estates. The financing of the building of these universities were all under the understanding that all their generations would automatically be allowed to attend, and this is all still happening today. The only difference is that the list of university donors has expanded but it is all under the understanding that their kids will all get in regardless of qualifications or merit. The media makes it out to be some big shocking revelation that this is happening, everyone knows this has been going on for hundreds of years. Money buys privilege it always has and always will and that is not really going to change anytime soon. I would bet these parents are going to get community service and a big fine no real punishment. This practice will continue as always how else do all these universities get all new buildings or major renovations every 30 years so they can charge all these crazy tuition fees they charge. They can not charge 80k a year if the university is a dump now can they. This entertainment ride will only continue if wealthy families continue to donate fortunes to these schools and the only way that is going to continue to happen is if their offspring generation after generation are guarenteed acceptance regardless of merit. This case will not change that fact regardless of how much each of these university's social studies departments cry and moan about social inequity as a mere cover for the fact that equality it not happening on their campuses when it comes to their admissions process.

If a university website states their accepted ACT & SAT 25th, 50th, & 75th percentile score requirements for prospective student applicants, THEN those universities MUST expel all of the children from this scam, BECAUSE, the scores submitted were nonexistent because they were fake and cannot be used for entry into the university. That equals an incomplete application.... & ALL scholarship money would need to be paid back in addition to jail time (depending on the financial source) because alot of times those scholarships are affiliated with federal funds.

We can complain or take action. Contact Netflix & Hulu. Let them know if Loughlin & Huffman are not fired from their shows and the providers continue to air them that we will cancel our Subscriptions. The only way to fight this kind of corruption is to hit them in the bank account. I just informed Netflix that if Loughlin isn't fired from Fuller House and Netflix continues to carry the show then I will cancel my Monthly Subscription. I refuse to let my daughter watch "Family Programming" that enriches a dishonest celebrity criminal who is actively hurting honest children and families attempting to earn their admission to college fairly and honestly.

So Asian students are protesting because they are being unfairly filtered out.. Meanwhile "white" students with affluent parents are given a handicap.. At least the schools are not giving *ALL* so called "white" kids a handicap like it has throughout most of American history.

What a farce, there has always been a back door admissions scheme at many colleges and those who lost out should be more upset the athletics fake or otherwise cost them a spot than a few idle rich kids.

Honestly it is no shock also for the rest of the world to watch this. The FBI manages to catch these schools + rich people's frauds in only 50 cases when the whole system of elite universities is based on this. But good for the FBI! Also don't get how they only focus on the celebrities when all the people arrested are big players in USA's (and the world's) capitalism?!

What I am thinking is that she may not be found guilty, so I don't think she should be fired from the companies she works for. It's such a thin line, meaning they may have hired this college coach and when she sent him pictures of her girls were working on some rowboat machines but not really in real rowboats, then the coach may have been the one to put their faces on someone else who were on real rowboats in the water. Just saying........

Trump should be on this list with his track of buying off FORBES and the other financial reporting entities. wouldnt be surprised to find out he and his dad could be part of this scheme..its so down Trumps ally to have been involved in this. the only the feds got involved is because of the FED financial aid program that colleges offer. its called Title IV funding. the caveat is that the more graduates able to find employment within their field of study within 6 mos of graduation the more Title IV funding the college receives. so logically if famous people are enrolled, it draws more people to enrollment to edge the college's goal of getting more Title IV funding and of course theres the problem of students who earned their way by way of meeting all enrollment requirement being pushed out by those looking for the short cuts. The take away is this: colleges have turned to a business model rather than an educational institution. thats to be blamed on the Gov as well because of their policies in awarding funding to colleges. this should be a starting point for the Fed Gov to overhaul its processes regarding college funding programs. its really not that complex of a scheme.

They were not rich enough to officially bribe the colleges. You just need to be as rich as Arnold Schwarzenegger who founded the Schwarzenegger Institute at USC. That’s how you get your children into a prestigious school.
