    "Huffman's daughter is said to have taken the test in December 2017 and received a 1420 on the test, a 400 point improvement from a previous test."

    I'm kinda shocked that straight up $500k can't buy your way into those colleges anyway. How bad were the students that they couldn't get in with that kind of advantage WITHOUT actually cheating!

    Actresses Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman among 40 charged in college exam cheating plot

    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 unsealed in Boston.

    ...

    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.

    ...

    In all, 44 people, some of them college coaches, have been charged thus far.

    Prosecutors said the scheme was masterminded by William Rick Singer, the founder of a for-profit college preparation business based in Newport Beach, California.

    I'd probably put the kids of the people involved on suicide watch. To find out (if you didn't know already) that your parents bought your way into your school would be a major shame

    There's no indication that the schools were involved in any of the wrong-doing.
    From 2011 to last month, parents paid Singer roughly $25 million to bribe coaches and university administrators to "designate their children as recruited athletes, or other favored admissions categories," according to the court papers.

    That surprises me as well, I guess the costs of everything at colleges is going up, including payoffs and bribes.

    I wish they'd hurry up and release the names of the other people.

    Probably giving the really big ones a chance to buy their way out of it.

    According to what has been reported so far, the kids would have almost certainly known and were likely active participants in the schemes.
