This definitely is how it works at a number of schools, but not quite like in the methods displayed here. Typically, if money is part of the equation, it's essentially hinted at or promised upfront as a donation later, once admission is conferred. The fact that these people thought they'd get away with the fake recruiting and the outright bribery is hilarious.

Meanwhile Desperate Housewives fans recall a plot in Season 1 Episode 5 in which Lynette Scavo (Huffman) tried to get her twin sons into an elite private school, with her husband, Tom (Doug Savant).

After the Scavos end up in a private school bidding war, they learn they will beat out another family for their spots if they can cough up a “donation” of $15,000.

As fate would have it, $15,000 is the exact same amount Huffman stands accused of paying in revelations this week.

You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried…
Lynette turned out to be a bad influence on Felicity

Do you think that whoever came up with that sum was a fan of the show?

Re: College Admissions Scandal: Actresses, Business Leaders Other Wealthy Parents Cha

It's clearly not about future income but rather about status...

...bragging / not feeling ashamed about your kid... and giving your kid a more "elite" experience.


Because if you are going to spend 500k / 1 mil, to go to elite college vs. regular college, the lifetime income earning potential difference or the child probably doesn't make up for the amount you spent lol.

- her family paid over 500 000$ in bribes

Just grab some popcorn and go to her IG or youtube channel comments section, unless she's disabled comments by now. A lot of people asking for SAT tutorials or advice for getting into a good university
she has fabs? who is she? the rest is sooooooo embarrassing
