    College Admission Bribery Scandal

    Back door deals of the Rich and Famous.



    Among the more high-profile defendants named in the indictment are actors Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

    Huffman was allegedly part of a scheme in which a proctor was arranged to help her daughter during the SAT and change her answers to help her get a higher score.

    William Rick Singer is the man who sits at the heart of the scam.

    The 59-year-old from California was indicted on charges of running an elaborate scheme to bribe university admissions officers.

    William Rick Singer was indicted on charges of running an elaborate scheme to bribe university admissions officers.

    Prosecutors said he arranged for fake "test takers" to appear on exam day to take the ACT and SAT university admission tests on behalf of his clients' children. It was also alleged he set up pictures of their kids playing sports, and even Photoshopped their faces onto stock photos of athletes in order to help them get coveted sports scholarships to elite schools.

    In some cases, parents paid Singer as much as $US6 million ($A8.5 million) to get their kids into a good school.

    Now that's funny!

    TBH...I kinda don't blame them. I never had kids but if I did and I had that much cash to burn I'd probably grease some palms to set them up...as long as my kid wasn't a fool who would waste it.

    I've always wondered how a father must feel after forking out tens of thousands to educate the kid only to see them piss it away by having 3 kids and becoming a professional ski bum.

    You mean to tell me that people use their wealth and power to better themselves and their family? And that higher education is one big cash grab prettied up? I am shooketh.

    In all honesty though, the "student-athlete" loophole was pretty clever. Still shitty, but clever.

    Just 'cause it zips, don't mean it fits

    This is why we need Bernie to get elected...So that all college is free, and this type of corruption will go away.

    In the end, it doesn't matter. Some bartender in New York said the Earth is going to end in 12 years so all of this other crap is irrelevant.

    Make them get degrees at Trump University... didnt Eric Trump ski bum for years in Vail? This sucks but just sayin

    Plus these Universities are so hard to get into because only Legacies go. Unless you are a smart athlete you dont get into Stanford with a 4.0 and a 30 ACT. Im not making excuses for them but unless your family went and donates, you dont get in.

    Maybe this is just affirmative action for dumb rich kids... we can't all claim to be Native American to get ahead...

    Kinda like how Trump somehow got into Wharton and W got into Harvard? Seems like there was some palm greasing there.
