Actress Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty on Monday for her role in a scheme in which she illegally spent $15,000 to help get her daughter into college.

The 56-year-old "Desperate Housewives" star was in tears as she admitted to the felony charge in Boston. Coaches, business executives, and celebrities including actress Lori Loughlin were among those charged in the wide-ranging scheme.

Huffman admitted to paying a fixer to change answers on her daughter’s SAT test to raise her score so she could get into college.

I have a lot more respect for her than I do those who pled "innocent".

The thing I don't get is how parents think a child with raw aptitude scores hundreds of points under a college's admission cutoff could succeed at that college? I know from experience that high SAT scores don't guarantee success, but I always assumed that low scores were a pretty accurate predictor of failure...

And, that would be true in a merit-based system, but this is obviously not the case.  I think celebrity students always succeed.

That assume bribery stops at admission to college.
