    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.

Funny how Donald Trump Junior chimed in immediately blasting Hollywood and the liberals. Sorry but Lori Laughlin has always been a devout conservative Christian Republican. Oops.

    It's sad that people are so outraged with The actresses when it's the universities fault. This has been business as usual for decades and two actresses is all we are hearing about??? Come on people wake up. All of these universities knew what was going on and probably work with people like singer all the time. College became a scam years ago and unless your family is well off and you have ties to a network of individuals in the field your interested in entering, college is not worth being in debt the rest of your college is all that is necessary and if your only going to get a job your wasting your time unless you know someone. Liberal arts degrees are a complete scam and waste of time. People should go to college with their mind set on educating themselves, and not expect to be given a career because they graduated. Most of the graduates I know who didn't already have their foot in the door of their chosen career are highly educated burger flippers at wack Arnold's. College has become mandatory for many careers but that is why community college is a far better alternative to a big name school and the reason so many millennial s will never own anything until their parents die. Unless you get a scholarship, you shouldn't be going to USC or any school that you will spend the rest of your life in debt because of student loans.

Jane Fonda and Henry Fonda 7.) Michael Douglas and Kirk Douglas 8.) Nancy Sinatra and Frank Sinatra 9.) Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn 10.) Charlie Sheen, Emilio Estevez and Martin Sheen 11.) Colin Hanks and Tom Hanks 12.) Ben Stiller, Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller 13.) Norah Jones and Ravi Shankar 14.) Allison Williams and Newscaster Brian Williams Each one of the people you see above has made millions off of their parents arranging them to have a career and a high level of success in the entertainment industry, but not one of them has been charged with anything.

    My only question is why did it take so long? This policy has been going on for years. The rich and famous always get what they want. The colleges would rather have celebs and the rich attend and we all know it. God knows they get away with murder. They live by a different set of rules. I don't believe for a minuet these colleges are not aware. I am sure they condone it.

    This will be tough to untangle but if it were me? I'd pull EVERY record and placement name since Singer started this "charity". ANYONE who made a payment and got their kid in must be automatically audited by the IRS. Additionally all degrees must be FORFEITED. They can apply to another school and start from scratch if they want it that bad. If you are CURRENTLY in school, you must be un-enrolled. And you may not do so quietly or under the guise of nightfall. You cannot argue the kids didn't know. They do. They know they are not scoring well on tests and shared that info with mom and dad, hence the fix. They know they never had college level athletic ability, or they would have been recruited. Will it be messy? Yes. But cheating, writing check with backdoor bribes cannot and should not be tolerated.
