At first, I thought it was rich parents trying to get their brat kids into a drama program, but it is really fucked up. Here is why:

-They wrote off these bribes as a tax write off to the IRS.

-They are going after merit scholarship money and other financial perks.

-They are doing it to get their kids into serious academic and scientific programs.

-USC School of Dentistry is involved in the Scam.

I'm late to chime in, but I actually worked in admissions at a top 10 college many, many years ago. I am stunned by this and all my fellow college admissions friends are too.

Everyone and their mother knew that straight out huge donations helped otherwise rejected kids get in, but this athletic and test scamming stuff is mind boggling. My guess is that this kind of stuff circulates among the "lower tier" private schools, where very wealthy parents send kids that aren't that intelligent or lazy or difficult - I would be shocked if kids from Exeter had to resort to these measures. Kids at the lower-tier privates are tutored up and the parents and schools push them as aggressively as possible, but they generally end up at middle-tier private colleges. Those private high schools had to be aware of this scam- they have a general idea how kids will test on ACT/SAT and there is no way a kid bumps up a score by hundreds without someone figuring it out. They were prob paid to stay quiet too. The kids' ACT/SAT tutors certainly knew because I'd imagine that many of these parents tried to tutor their kids to better ACT/SAT scores before throwing in the towel and breaking the law. Again, prob more payoffs.

Mamet is a colossal asshole who likes to sit and watch the world burn, and then turn it into his next project. He’s right about higher education being full of corruption and hypocrisy, though, so it’s no wonder he excuses his dinner companions for gaming the system - it’s exactly what the protagonist in one of his plays would do.

R9 Supposedly, the ACT/SAT tests measure cumulative knowledge, and being prepped for them only gives students a slight edge by making them familiar with the presentation of material and thus reducing test anxiety. I would guess wealthy kids benefit more by going to private schools and being tutored for many, many years. However, there will always be dumbasses like OJ who need to bribe their way through the system.

I wonder if the FBI was actually investigating an agency unrelated to athletics like, say, the College Board, but stumbled onto Singer’s other connections during the investigation. If the corruption is not limited to a few opportunistic criminals, but rampant throughout these organizations, coming from the top as with Enron or Wells Fargo, this will be HUGE. How many rich high school students were also “tutored” by proctors when they took their AP exams?

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 2203/13/2019

Someone mentioned that David Mamet was only voicing his support of Felicity Huffman because of his friendship with William H. Macy. Huffman actually starred as "Karen" on Broadway in Speed-the-Plow" in 1988 (maybe she took over for Madonna?), later won an Obie Award for appearing in Mamet's play "The Cryptogram" and starred in the premiere of his play "Boston Marriage." She also starred in Mamet's 1997 film "The Spanish Prisoner" and had a small role in his '88 film "Things Change,"

So those two have their own (rather long) history.

The thing with the colleges themselves is, was there no vetting of these kids and their accomplishments? Like if you say you’re a champion tennis player, they just accept that? Everybody fluffs their resumes somewhat, but you would think the big achievements will be checked.

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 2803/13/2019

R27, WTF? Are you seriously unaware that universities rarely interview prospective students as part of the admissions process? How the fuck would the schools be "complicit"? If anything they should be the opposite: bribing ... er, donating to a school directly is perfectly legal, since it goes into their endowment funds, but bribing individual school officials is not okay! (from their perspective) Btw it's not like they can readily conclude after admitting a student that they're somehow "too dumb," and you also can't judge one based solely on their social media presence.

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 2903/13/2019

R23 Mamet and Macy also invented an anti-method acting technique called Practical Aesthetics that uses raw energy, literal reading, and being present in the moment rather than ruminating about past events or over-analyzing situations to develop characters and generate emotions. They both strike me as rebellious guys who believe “unlearning” the post-modernist philosophies supposedly espoused by university theater professors. That Macy ended up ensnarled in a college scandal is very surprising to me.

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 3003/13/2019

USC's academic reputation gained, ironically, when they opened the floodgates and started admitting a lot of Chinese students. Despite the idea that UCLA is so Asian based, admissions says the split is fairly equal between Asian/Caucasian /Hispanic in the 20%s. The smallest segment is African Americans at 3%. Non US is 12% and mixed race is 5%. USC has 39% white, 20% Asian and 14% Non US. African Americans do slightly better than at UCLA at 4% and Hispanics are 13%

But why would Lori have to cheat to get her daughter in? OJ already has deals with, among others, Amazon and Sephora. Those are very impressive on an application. She has famous parents and don't think the University didn't try to use that to their advantage before the scandal. She graduated from, I presume, a good private high school. That has to account for something at a private university. Even though she probably is a total airhead, it's hard to look at some of those achievements, including large following on social media, and not think that the admission board would be swayed.

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 3103/13/2019

R22 Felicity gets cast because she’s a competent actress (see American Crime) who was on a hit show and has an Oscar nom. It’s not like she’s nabbing A-list roles. She just built a career out of a series of smaller successes (and no huge breakout role) as many people do.

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 3203/13/2019

R28 - for the non-revenue generating sports, like rowing, sailing, etc., the universities generally trust the coaches, though at top-tier schools there is a higher threshold those candidates need to meet to get in (not as high as the standard for regular students, but higher than revenue generating sports like football). The coaches usually give the admissions folks a list of students they want and they get preferential treatment.

That being said, Lori Laughlin's kids must be fucking stupid to have to cheat to get into USC, esp. given OJ's work experience.

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 3303/13/2019

[quote]Like if you say you’re a champion tennis player, they just accept that? Everybody fluffs their resumes somewhat, but you would think the big achievements will be checked.

R28, this was discussed in one of the articles that came out yesterday (though I can't remember where). It made the excellent point that achievements in sports such as tennis, crew, volleyball and water polo aren't exactly well-publicized beyond maybe a specific state's level, so even within a given community of enthusiasts they have no real way of knowing for certain if a student is indeed a star athlete. Yes, leading universities may compete with one another to land the handful of genuine stars with reasonably large fan bases, but they might have 100 spots to fill on a given team, and there simply aren't enough "known" athletes to fill them.

Also, particularly among elite universities with widely known rigorous academics, there's both internal and external pressure to produce across-the-board excellence, even in seemingly "minor" sports like water polo. It wouldn't be "fitting" if Yale had a consistently top-3 academic ranking but a tennis team ranked in the lower half of the top-100.

by Brought to you by Entitlement reply 3403/13/2019

R34, so in other words, the coach must be complicit with the cheating company in order to produce documentation that the student is truly an elite athlete. At USC, one girl got onto the womens basketball team, which only has fifteen scholarships. No way the coach did not know of this development but he's still there.

In his case, that was the University of Texas cancelling his deal after he was lecturing his students and advising them to give hell to all arabs because they "bombed New York City". He was promptly told not to come back for the next semester and his racist views were no longer considered vital to the curriculum lol.

Mamet's had a tough few weeks. His best friend Ricky Jay dies and now his other best friend is going to be a prison whore. I knew senility was kicking in on Mamet a few years ago when he said he was "in love with Sarah Palin".

I know a family with two very smart and clever sons. They got into top tier schools based on merit, both were valedictorians of their high schools and had exceptional academic and other performance prior to applying to the colleges of their choice.

One son made money during and after college by writing and editing the essays and other written material students needed to submit as part of their applications. Both sons are now in solid tech careers but the cheater is arrogant and entitled. The parents were deeply distressed by a lot of his behavior but now that he's successful and stable in his field they've put the past behind them. Creepy as he could be, he did not himself cheat, but he did enable others.

The cheaters in this case got caught. Their cheating was reprehensible, bit they aren't the only ones gaming the system. It happens in countless instances and in a variety of ways. Sometimes it's mom editing their kids papers and beefing them up with additional information to get a better grade. I have a relative who did that, I doubt her son would graduated without her constant help. I imagine their are legions of parents out there assisting their kids that way.

With the corrupt leadership in the US today I fear it will inspire even more people to cheat any way they can.

Oh Mamet

I went to BU film school eons ago. For one of our screen writing classes Mamet came in to lecture for a day. The was a cautionary warning that if we were even a minute late for the class we were out of luck because he would lock the door and we weren't allowed in. As I had other commitments in the morning I was aware that i probably couldn't get there on time so i didn't even try to make the lecture. When I did make it in I ran into one of my classmates and asked him about it. He said that I missed nothing as Mamet did indeed lock the door and then told all of them to quit grad school as it was all a waste of effort. That was his lecture. The whole lecture.

BONO's partner in socially responsible investment firm is charged in college fraud scandal after paying $250K to USC, hiring a man to take his son's exam and photoshopping boy into football photos

Bill McGlashan, who is a founder and managing partner at TPG Growth, allegedly paid over $250,000 to get his son into University of Southern California

He gave $50,000 to an athletic director at the college prior to his son's application and an additional $200,000 after he was admitted

In addition, documents state he paid an individual to take part of his son's ACT exam in West Hollywood while he and the boy were home in San Francisco

McGlashan would later, without his son's awareness, assist to photoshop images that showed the boy as a punter, despite never playing football, it is claimed

'Pretty funny. The way the world works these days is unbelievable,' said McGlashan in one call that was recorded and transcribed by prosecutors

He founded the $2 billion Rise Fund with Bono, an investment firm that focuses on social responsibility and ethical investing

TPG owns a majority stake in Creative Artists Agency, where McGlashan serves as a director

There’s only so much a tutor can do even if the kid is dedicated and committed to learning. You cannot turn every child into an intellectual anymore than you can turn every child into a world class runner. We all have our aptitudes and biological limitations. With the current emphasis on STEM I know parents who have invested a lot of money in tutors, weekend courses, camps in coding and the kids just don’t get it. Only one kid has become competent. You have to have an aptitude, sadly one little girl is a really, really good writer but the parents are pushing her to code and work for one of the big tech companies. They can’t accept that she’s never going to wake up some morning and get it and they can’t let their dream go.

We had 3 couples and 2 single moms over for dinner a few weeks ago and I couldn’t tell you where any of their kids go to school or plan to go or if they are on the honor roll.

Allen Koh, CEO of the elite admissions consulting firm Cardinal Education, told The Daily Beast that he first heard about Singer in 2013 from some of his clients, who had hired Singer to get a second opinion.When he met Singer at one client’s home, Koh said, he was immediately skeptical of Singer’s promise that he could win students a spot at elite universities.“One of my mottos is—and I tell this to families, and I tell this to my staff—anyone who offers a guarantee is either lying or incompetent,” he said. He expressed those concerns to some families, he said—but due to Singer’s “titanic” reputation among the uber-wealthy, they didn’t always listen.

And while he suspected that Singer wouldn’t be able to deliver on his promises, he said he never thought that the middleman was committing felonies.“I thought he was a charlatan,” he said. “I didn’t know he was a crook.”

This is just the beginning of the fallout, Koh added. “There’s gonna be so many more names coming out. A lot more names. Just of the people I know who’ve worked with him, just a fraction were indicted the other day,” he said. “It’s gonna be ugly.”

Check out this cunt. Son defends parents------

Maybe this is why Gregory and Marcia Abbott allegedly bought their daughter’s way into college.

Their “rapper” son, Malcolm, popped out of the family’s Park Avenue building to smoke a giant blunt — while defending his parents and bragging about his latest CD.

“They’re blowing this whole thing out of proportion,” said Malcolm Abbott outside the home that overlooks the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “I believe everyone has a right to go to college, man.”

In between drags, Malcolm, whose father is the founder of food and beverage distributor International Dispensing Corp., admitted, “I didn’t go to college.”

The toker, who sports a ponytail and raps under the name “Billa,” then shamelessly plugged his music. “Check out my CD, ‘Cheese and Crackers,’ ” he said of his 2018 five-track rec­ord that includes a song titled “If I Lost My Money.”

Later, Malcolm emerged with his brother, who groused to The Post on Tuesday his parents “got roped into [this by] some guy who f–king cheated them.”

The parents are accused of paying admitted mastermind William “Rick” Singer $125,000 to boost their struggling daughter’s ACT and SAT scores.

Singer paid off an alleged crooked test proctor to inflate the girl’s scores to a perfect 800 on the SAT math exam and 710 on the literature test. On the ACTs, her score of 23 out of 36 was upped to a near-perfect 35, according to court filings.

The daughter of a Miami venture capitalist whose family has ties to supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid knowingly took part in the sweeping college admissions bribery scheme, according to court documents.

Dragon Global CEO Robert Zangrillo was one of 33 parents charged Tuesday for allegedly conspiring with crooked college counselor William “Rick” Singer to get his daughter admitted into the University of Southern California — going as far as to hire someone to retake classes his daughter failed, according to court documents.

His daughter Amber knew about the plot, according to the documents, even asking Singer in a phone call what he was doing “about an ‘F’ grade that she had received in an art history class she had taken.”

Singer said that one of his employees, Mikaela Sanford, would secretly retake the online class on her behalf and that she had “already got the class almost done.”

Singer asked if his plan made sense and Zangrillo and his daughter replied “Yes,” according to the document. They also asked whether Sanford could take a biology class for Zangrillo’s daughter.

Amber needed the stellar grades on her transcript since her application to the school indicated that she “was taking classes” at a number of colleges after being rejected by USC the first time around in 2017.

Her new application also “falsely stated that she rowed crew at a club for an average of 44 hours per week for 15 weeks a year.”

Zangrillo allegedly paid a $50,000 bribe to USC’s athletics department and made a $200,000 donation to a bogus charity so Amber would be labeled an athletic recruit, despite her having never rowed competitively, the criminal complaint states.

On June, 14 2018, USC accepted Zangrillo’s daughter.

Amber posted the happy news to her Facebook account in July.

“Started School at University of Southern California,” her Facebook post read.

The Zangrillos appear in multiple Facebook photos with supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Zangrillo posted a photo of himself with Gigi and his other daughter Alexa in Central Park in 2013 and an image from St. Barths celebrating the New Year in 2014 with the sisters.

Zangrillo couldn’t be reached. A message to Amber was not answered.

They're celebrity parents and company CEOs.

The children were likely raised by nannies while the parents were working long hours or filming on the other side of the country.

The parents probably did it as a result of feeling guilty.

That doesn't excuse them. I'm just saying, I doubt any of them had much of an idea of what was really going on with their children in school so using their money to patch up their lack of concern (and their children's lack of grades) and get them into these colleges was just the quick fix they were used to.

"Elite school?" Yale, Stanford, Wake Forest, Georgetown? Yes. The University of San Diego, the University of Texas, and the University of Southern California? Not so much.

What I'm saying is with some of the schools implicated these kids clearly just wanted to go there for whatever reason. They weren't shooting for the moon.

It doesn't have to be either/or with "entitlement" and "guilt." There are many loaded parents who would have donated money to the school or actually bothered to pay enough attention to their kids to get them the help they needed before they even bothered to take the test or put their kids in a plethora of activities that they paid for. Entitled people don't generally limit their sense of entitlement to one thing.

Huffman's daughter has been making the audition rounds for the big drama schools--people saw her with her parents at the Carnegie Mellon auditions, NYU and the Unified (multiple schools) in Chicago and, of course, USC. The high profile programs are extremely hard to get into -- they take a handful of students. Naturally, the connections would be a huge plus, but academics/test scores count for half the admissions score at NYU, while UCLA won't even allow you to audition unless you've got a competitive GPA/SAT combo. Given that one of the NYU-Tisch studios was basically started by Macy and Mamet, you'd think Macy's kid would have a guaranteed slot, but NYU's admission system is a bit weird. The theatre department holds auditions, interviews the kids and gives them the score, but NYU separate admissions committee makes the decision on who gets in and who doesn't.

Acceptances and rejections started in February with most of the big schools delivering the good and bad news at the end of the month. I expect the Macy-Huffman kid just got moved over to the rejection pile at a number of places.

R531, the system is not that unusual. Drama departments accept on the basis of audition or portfolio, the university accepts on the basis of grades and scores. You need both acceptances to get in.

I think that is how most majors work. You interview to get into the department, but the college has the ultimate ability to accept or reject.

The detail of applying to get a kid in via the basketball team and falsely listing his height as 6’1” when he is all of 5’5” is just too amusing.

Isn’t SOMEONE going to notice the size of this guy when he arrives? Is no-one going to ask him to play basketball? And WHAT a lie. It’s not rounding up five feet eleven or even ten to six, it’s pretending a kid who is extremely short is going to be any use on a basketball team. I mean, I am 5’5”, true, but then again I’m a woman, frequently feel short even by female standards and at school my height was a real disadvantage for certain sports.

We had a guy at my university (an elite school by international standards, humblebrag but relevant for the story) who was from overseas and had been written the most ridiculous letter of recommendation from a person high up in the government of his native country that claimed he was the best student that nation had had in the last twenty-five years or something. On arrival it became clear that the guy could barely read and write, and couldn’t understand basic concepts as put to him in any of the classes. If engaged in conversation it was clear that he was honestly, slow. The professor in charge of the course openly complained to students about the lies in his recommendation letter. He eventually scraped the lowest possible passing grade after his parents engaged tutors to help him study day and night for a few months while everyone else was partying. Is that how these parents wanted their kids to live their lives? Surely they’d be humiliated when they got to these colleges if they had to be helped to this degree.

The handwriting kid may have dysgraphia and/or dyslexia. If that’s the case, the parents should put the money into working on that and start out in a smaller, less overwhelming school. Or maybe even realize that not everyone needs to work at a desk and see if the kid has a talent for mechanics, etc.

Trade skills can earn a decent living. I know it’s not the same for these parents as being able to say “my kid is at Yale,” but it’s a kid who can be self sufficient and make it in the world. That’s supposed to be the point.

Cut it at what? This gives them a leg up the same way "internships" do. It provides a network, a smidge of knowledge and a veneer of competence. Most jobs don't require the intelligence of Einstein. The BA in English "earned" from Harvard certainly doesn't make an individual more prepared for life than a similar degree from Kalamazoo. The Harvard name might open more doors or help one secure more interviews.

Well I know what you mean R562, because college doesn’t really prove very much and for sure you don’t need to be that smart to do the vast majority of jobs out there, but these kids seem so stupid and need so much help that I’m not sure they could get through the course.

So many areas of academia revolve around the idea that since the student was admitted, they have what it takes to graduate. They can retake a failed course or change majors etc. Most jobs don't ask for transcripts so a shitty academic journey is covered by the fact that one's completed it.

The point of the degree is to get to the next step.

If employers would hire unknown people without college degrees then people would stop getting them. Since they don't, people do what they feel they must, to get to the next stage of the process.

Harvard grad here. In the words of Ali McGraw in Love Story, smart and poor. I don’t think it made my life any different than if I’d gone honors to a state school, but I wasn’t part of the ski team/ rich kid group. So all the “networking” passed me by and I just studied, to be looked at by hiring managers once I graduated as either not part of the club, or some freak they couldn’t relate to. I made friends of course, but they mostly were like me from poorer backgrounds. The ones who have found success have mostly done it in politics.

R569, it really depends on what you study. What gets you ahead are the skills you acquire rather than the knowledge you gain. Theater majors do better in the job market than mathematics graduates because the workplace wants project management and team working skills rather than higher math knowledge.

MBAs are bullshit degrees and do not get you far. So you better believe that many of them wait tables.

But I guess without University I never would have been able to have even the somewhat disappointing reasonably middle-class life I now have.

It doesn't. That's why the outrage is laughable. Those of us that graduated from one of the 'elite' schools named in this fraud scheme know that even the less motivated students will graduate. Most classes are graded on a curve so even the idiots pass. These are private institutions in the business of making money, not babysitting. Students are pushed through.
