Being a haughty hottie probably won’t get you far with the judge.

Indictment against wealthy parents buying their kids into selective college is stunning. Some kids didn't know about their parents efforts. But Lori Loughlin's kids did. They pretended to row crew - even posed on ERG machines - to get into USC. They are both Instagram stars.
----------------------
After receiving provisional admission based on pretended to row crew, Loughlin's daughter couldn't figure out how to fill out the actual application, so they had the fraudster fill one out for her. The scope of laziness and entitlement here is something

Also having your arms crossed, with a smug condescending look on your face is not the best strategy in a hearing.

@Hoodat

In the daughters defense,they grew up in a world where there is no such thing as line between fantasy and reality.  You can't blame the children for their upbringing until they are 25 or so,and have had a chance to experience life away from home.

Children are born as wild animals,understanding nothing but hunger and thirst. All they know about life as they grow up is what their parents teach them.

Things get even weirder (granted, this is the Daily Mail, so take it with a grain of salt, BUT...)

Lifestyle vlogger Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, took on fellow influencer Marissa Rachel and singer Rydel Lynch in a 2016 episode of Tap That Awesome App for a now defunct Verizon mobile phone channel.

But when Rachel was declared the winner in front of a live audience she says studio execs mysteriously stepped in and ordered producers to re-shoot the final few questions.

When the trivia contest resumed Rachel and Lynch were under orders not to buzz in with the correct answers, leaving Giannulli to take home first prize, a $5,000 donation to a charity of her choice, it's alleged.

When one of the parents asked if this could blow up ineir face, they were told that it has worked for 24 years.

The same people outraged that the rich can  bribe a path for their kids to get in a college, are all for providing free college for illegal aliens.

Maybe some of them are in there, but I'm not one for providing free college to illegals, and think that some person who could pass the tests got replaced by someone who felt entitled just because of daddy's money is bullsh*t.

Athletic and merit scholarships are the last great hope of kids who know they won't be able to afford the tuition otherwise, and they bust their butts to get those. Letting someone buy that spot is crap, and it's how we get all these ubercredentialed idiots running around in DC and elsewhere.

Well, to be sure, you know as well as I do a lot of those athletes in  major colleges performing before the adoring masses are most likely there fraudulently.
I only have to hear some of them talk and look at their tatted up physiques to wonder how they got through high school much less be able to take regular college courses.
Reminds me of a story (might be apocryphal) I heard about Dick Butkus. Supposedly, when he got to U-Illinois he complained about having to read books when he went there to play football.

I'm not saying the jocks are there because they're geniuses. I have seen that, too, even when I went to school. That  racket is that they bring in alumnae dollars, which, in turn support the sports programs, with a little skim... As for their grades, well, that's the reason I ended up on the Honor Council, only called on one case, which to the dismay of the poly sci majors, I did better on than they did. I was not called back for a second case.

That isn't saying there aren't those who can make the grades, just that some are questionable at best, in training for the entitled attitude seen so often in the pro sports to which they aspire.

"Looks like University of Illinois!"

One thing that I hope does not get lost in this story, is the bottom line that there is a terrible gaming of the higher education system, and the "REAL" losers are the ones who get bumped from consideration.  NOW....add the fact that Elizabeth Warren basically did the same thing, lying about heritage to get into Harvard.  Beleive me.......    There was a very deserving talented Native American who lost their spot to the school for her actions.   The nation can not forget this.
