    I am surprise this story has not been posted yet. We all expect kids of wealthy parents to have an advantage whether it is just being a legacy or donations to the school but it this case it goes well beyond that. They are bribing officials, changing SAT scores, and even taking fake pictures of them participating in athletics they never played.

    You would think there would be bipartisan outrage over this. Liberals should be outraged that wealthy white people are again benefiting from poor applicants and conservatives should be mad that more Hollywood elites are probably acting like hypocrites taking advantage of their money.

    The networks seems to be focusing on the actors right now but I am not familiar with either of the 2 actresses involved. I have seen William Macy in some movies like Air Force One but I don't think he has even been charged yet.

    Ah yes, wealthy white liberal elites using their privilege while pretending to be supportive of minorities. Hypocrisy does not get better than that.

    Probably quite the opposite. USC which is one of the Universities mentioned in the case has a 16% Asian population. If they solely went by test scores it probably would be more similar to Berkeley which has close to a 45% Asian population. The GPA to get into USC is about 3.73. Berkeley has a recommended 3.85 GPA minimum. Wealthy people with stupid kids would stand no chance if we went to a solely test score based system.

    So much for "not posted yet".

    The Search Function is a very useful tool.

    Anyway, I would be surprised if any of them get Federal Time.

    But, who knows?

    Maybe Mrs. Macy and Aunt Becky get a small stretch in a cushy Club Fed (like Martha Stewart)?

    Sorry I scanned through the first few pages of current events before posting. I didn't look in Opinions and Beliefs.

    No biggie.

    Still a good topic.

    Crazy that Aunt Becky paid 500k.

    That is crazy.

    The Full House memes have been priceless.

    Is Aunt Becky the Lori Loughlin actress? 500K is crazy. If the kid is not too bright academically she could have just used the 500k and got her into a business or something she is passionate about. What school was she trying to get her kid into?

    Yeah, I had the same reaction. This is like hearing about Catholic Church sex abuse. Rich people game the system again. Water is wet.

    There's going to be a reckoning. Breitbart was cheering Elizabeth Warren on the other day about breaking up the tech companies. People are pissed.

    What they did is wrong and they should suffer the consequences.

    But, this is a NOTHING BURGER compared to what is really happening at today's colleges on admissions and faculty hiring. Discrimination against: State Resident Students, Whites, and Asians is out of control. Faculty hiring of only Leftist and discrimination against Conservative thinkers is the norm.

    Colleges have become Left Wing indoctrination centers... and there is no investigation of their admission or hiring policies, because they serve the Democratic Party and Leftists.

    I agree they should suffer the consequences. What about the kids? Should they be charged too? Many knew, especially the ones that went for photo shoots in sports they never played. Should they be expelled or their degrees and accreditation be revoked.

    How about the eminently qualified random kids (WITHOUT Rich Parents) who were denied a seat (b/c of this outrageous conduct)?
