Prominent actresses, CEOs and others are alleged to have paid sizable bribes to college coaches to get their kids into prominent schools.NBC News first reported the news:The alleged scheme focused on getting students admitted to elite universities as recruited athletes, regardless of their athletic abilities, and helping potential students cheat on their college exams, according to the indictment.The plot involved students who attended or were seeking to attend Georgetown University, Stanford University, UCLA, the University of San Diego, USC, University of Texas, Wake Forest, and Yale, according to federal prosecutors.Among the people involved: Aunt Becky.Lori Loughlin, the popular Full House actress, allegedly paid $500,000 to get her daughters into USC.ABC 11 had details on how the scam worked:The alleged scam centered around a man in California who ran a business helping students get into the college of their choice.Authorities say parents would pay him a predetermined amount, with full knowledge of what they were doing. He would then steer the money to one of two places: either an SAT or ACT administrator, or a college athletic coach.The coaches would allegedly arrange a fake profile that listed the prospective student as an athlete, and exam administrators would either hire proctors to take the test or correct the answers of a student.Social media is going crazy over Aunt Becky’s involvement in the scandal.Uncle Jesse never forcing those kids to get a haircut when they were young no doubt turned them into hooligans in their teen years, forcing Aunt Becky’s hand. #BlameUncleJesse— Jeremy Birmingham (@Birm) March 12, 2019I thought I was completely bored by NCAA recruiting scandals.
