    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.

    It is disturbing to know that so many dull twats have slid through this system and now exist
    within our government at their low level of performance.. Donald Trump is one of them, as we notice he has not released his grades or tax returns. The testing administrators are so stupid that they have not used facial recognition technology to admit the correct people to the testing sessions.

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.

    Faking a one-time SAT or ACT test score is one thing (maybe they just got lucky on their guesses), but faking an athletic career?!
    I never had to talk about my SAT/ACT scores after I took them if I didn't want to, but hard for an athlete to hide their athletic ability, or lack thereof, for long.
    Really, I've been injured for four years. That's going to come out.

    • MarcellusTheGreen

      Faking athletics used to be difficult because the limited luxury athletic scholarships were given only to football players, regardless of literacy. Even the few swimming and track scholarships were diverted to big-money football. Once in college on a football scholarship, they hired people to take their tests for them and even appear in classes so the athlete could spend more time training. (Not to mention the use of fine cars and women and a luxury dorm.) Hence the athlete finished school with a degree whose diploma he could not read. And of course, female students could pay with sex, even if it was just stripping for money.

    -Black People get scholarships just for being black, in order to manufacture diversity in colleges, raising their reputation, thus raising their value.
    -Athletes get full rides because they bring money to the University
    -Hypergeniuses get into universities because they can promote them as alumni, further raising the University's value.
    Colleges don't let you in because of your work, they let you in if you can make them money or boost their reputation.
