"Nationwide college cheating plot(s) exposed by Feds"

Dozens of people have been charged in a nationwide college admissions cheating and athletic recruitment scheme, federal officials announced Tuesday.

The United States Attorney’s Office will hold a press conference Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Boston to announce the charges.

Prominent entertainers and business owners are implicated in the alleged scandal that involves boosting SAT scores and bribing college administrators, according to the criminal complaint.

Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among those named in the complaint. They face charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

The complaint alleges Huffman "made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 to KWF to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter."

Huffman allegedly paid to have someone who "controlled" an SAT testing center proctor her daughter's exam in Los Angeles and secretly correct her incorrect answers.

"Ultimately, Huffman's daughter received a score of 1420 in the SAT, an improvement of approximately 400 points over her PSAT," the complaint reads.

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, agreed to "pay bribes totally $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team -- despite the fact that they did not participate in crew," according to the complaint.

Others implicated include owners of a media company, vineyard, private equity firm and real estate development firm.

John Wilson, of Lynnfield, who owns a private equity and real estate development firm, allegedly bribed the USC water polo coach to designate his son as a recruit to the USC men's water polo team.

"Wilson also sought to use bribes to to obtain the admission of his two daughters to Stanford University and Harvard University as recruited athletes," the complaint reads.

This is a developing story...

WCVB will have more information when it becomes available.

Can't they just donate the money directly to the school to get their dumbass kid admitted like all the other Ivy League failsons?

most legacy kids that go to Ivy League schools have some inkling of intelligence
having to cheat on SATs and get in through sports means the kids are complete idiots

>kids are complete idiots

They're usually kids who would be on the fringe/a hair outside of the scores to qualify for these elite schools, but the parents want a *guarantee* of admission, not just a dice roll.

Like, to get into Harvard, the mid-50% of ACT scores accepted are 32 through 35. So you could be a kid with a 31, a really good score, and be in the sub-25th percentile for acceptance.

In my experience tutoring the insanely rich in LA, very very rarely do people try to send dummies to elite schools. Parents are happy to ship their mediocre student rich kid to Boulder. But if their kid gets mostly As and is sitting on a PSAT of 1250+ start of junior year, their eyes get mighty big and they think they can side door their way in.

... I tutored a dumbass YouTube personality in LA who got a 1500 on the SAT and ultimately went to Michigan. So I'm never surprised by an overlap of book/grade/test smarts and dumbassedness when it comes to rich kids, lol. I just saw the video of Lori's daughter and... yeah, I mean, it's hard to see her crushing a standardized test, but I would've thought the same about my student, so who knows? I just see these types with astonishing frequency, so it's hard to tell, haha.

That said, going the "fake athlete" route suggests she needed more like 4-5 points of wiggle room on the ACT rather than 1-2. So... yeah. lol

In response to Reply # 1


  

          

Either that or they're too cheap/privileged to feel like the school deserves that much money from them.

Ivy Schools have constant flows of rich people begging to give them money, so they aren't really that impressed if a rich parent donates a large amount-- only if a rich parent donates an absolute fuckton. So that only really applies to some .000001% folks.

One of the guys running this scheme had a great quote, that essentially said most kids can't get in the front door, and most parents can't access the back door. So they're all out there looking for *guaranteed* ways into the side door. That's where you get all of these fraudulent schemes-- the phony proctors, the phony athletic profiles. This also isn't even touching upon the kids who get phony extra time on the test, who have their admissions essays written for them. Anything to make entrance easier-- because donating money and/or getting a rec letter from a prestigious person or three simply isn't enough to *guarantee* admission these days.

Outside of social networking, she doesn't appear to have much ambition that would require even an associates degree. They basically wasted $500K?

71. "Sounded like they might have been buying a coach's 'picks'"
In response to Reply # 14


          

my understanding from when my sis used to work in admissions at a NESCAC school was that coaches get a certain number of picks they can get in almost regardless of qualifications.

So the article I read, it struck me that they might have been forging the athletic qualifications and then bribing the coach to use one of his guaranteed picks on a kid who would never be able to play on the team.

Tomjohn's second example notwithstanding, experience generally shows that it's harder to get into elite schools than it is to perform acceptably once you're into them.

It seems like there is big money changing hands in this whole scheme. But nothing serious will come of it.

A Yale soccer coach accepted a check for $400,000 to designate a girl
who didn't play soccer as an athletic recruit. There was another promise for $450,000 for another girl.

And since we're viewing everything through racial lenses, here is a picture of the coach. You know he's getting the brunt of the time

But I would not pay one extra dollar to get him in, if he couldn't get in on his own. Especially if he could get in somewhere else.

WTF!? ...Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, agreed "to pay bribes totalling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team -- despite the fact that they did not participate in crew," according to the complaint...

A half milli? That's 10x the actual tuition. They couldn't just send them to a different university they could actually get into?

That money could send 100 kids to San Diego State!

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Kushner in Harvard is one of many examples

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/8/2/16084226/jared-kushner-harvard-affirmative-action

The Trump administration’s views on affirmative action are back in the news. The New York Times reported this week that the administration would rescind Obama-era guidelines on ways in which colleges could legally consider race as a factor in admissions. But as Vox’s Libby Nelson writes, the real action will be in the Supreme Court, with Trump set to replace Anthony Kennedy, the swing vote on the matter — setting the stage for a potential ruling to restrict the use of race in admissions nationwide.
Still, in conversations and debates over just who gets a leg up in university admissions, the tale of how senior White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner got into Harvard is an instructive one.
Of course few will be surprised that Kushner’s father, Charles Kushner, a wealthy and connected developer and political donor, helped him get in. But the details of just how that happened, described in Daniel Golden’s thoroughly reported 2007 book The Price of Admission, remain remarkable to this day.
What Golden found, essentially, was that Jared’s father handed Harvard (a school he did not attend) a big pile of money just as Jared was starting to apply to colleges. Around the same time, Jared’s dad got his US senator to contact another US senator to arrange a chat with Harvard’s dean of admissions.
Happily for the Kushner family, Jared was then admitted. But several officials at Jared’s high school outright told Golden that they found the choice puzzling, since his grades and academic record really didn’t seem to merit it:
In 1998, according to sources familiar with the gift, the New York University alumnus pledged $2.5 million to Harvard, to be paid in annual installments of $250,000. ... At the time of the pledge, Kushner’s older son, Jared, was starting the college admissions process at the Frisch School, a Jewish high school in Paramus, New Jersey. A senior in 1998-99, Jared was not in the school’s highest academic track in all courses, and his test scores were below Ivy League standards. Frisch officials were surprised when he applied to Harvard — and dismayed when he was admitted.
“There was no way anybody in the administrative office of the school thought he would on the merits get into Harvard,” a former school official told me. “His GPA did not warrant it, his SAT scores did not warrant it. We thought for sure, there was no way this was going to happen. Then, lo and behold, Jared was accepted. It was a little bit disappointing because there were at the time other kids we thought should really get in on the merits, and they did not” ...
... Margot Krebs, who was director of Frisch’s college preparatory program at the time, said, “Jared was certainly not anywhere near the top of his class. He had some very strong personal qualities. He’s a very charming young man with a great deal of poise, the sort of kid you would look at him and say, ‘This is a future politician.’ It was an unusual choice for Harvard to make.”
Golden goes on to describe the role of the two senators — Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey and Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts — in getting Charles Kushner in touch with Harvard’s dean of admissions:
A source close to the family told me that New Jersey senator Frank Lautenberg, to whom Kushner and his family gave nearly $100,000 from 1992 to 2002, turned to Massachusetts senator Edward Kennedy to boost Jared’s Harvard prospects. Senator Kennedy, a Harvard alumnus whose family has been associated with the university for three generations, is said to have contacted admissions dean William Fitzsimmons, who then spoke with Kushner.
You can read more detail in Golden’s book, but overall the saga is a rather remarkable peek behind the curtain at just how the admissions process can be twisted to the benefit of the wealthy.

Sometimes, like that high jump kid, they were completely clueless which is it's own kind of satisfying schadenfreude even if it does make you feel for them a bit.


On the other hand, you had kids posing in water polo gear for fully authentic headshots too. The parents are to blame for a lot of this and so is social privilege, but I feel like I was never dumb enough as a high school senior to get apply to any colleges that seemed out of my depth, let alone get accepted.


But I guess I don't know what it's like to get whatever I want, either.

You're opening yourself up to getting investigated by the FBI so you can help Aunt Becky's kid get into college? I know you're an employee of the university, but you're risking a hell of a lot to your career for something that doesn't help your program at all.

It's not like paying someone to get a player you want to come play for you, the only people benefiting from this are outside your program.

You work at UCLA and they're paying you 30k/year with no health benefits, and then some parent comes along with a suitcase full of cash to help a kid who you won't have to put on the field anyway? I'm surprised it isn't WAY more common than this.

In response to Reply # 77


  

          

Saw him ID'd as "spouse" on the phone and thought how is that not enough.

If they don't have him a paper trail connecting him to the first daughter, I suppose there's not much they can do.

because we are bombarded with outrageous shit 24/7.

but i honestly had no idea this 'world' existed. not to this degree.

just looking at this, fyre festival, maga, etc...

there are so many attributes of mainstream whiteness that arent attributed to the white mainstream.

bigger than what we're expecting.

It's like Madoff, it's almost unbelievable that so many "elite" people were got by the same guy. And I'm genuinely stunned that people this rich needed this kind of "help" to get their kids into USC (though Tomjohn and Longo make good points on this upthread.)

MAGA is, but personally I can say as a Bay Area resident, it's a pretty alien culture.

But most young YTs don't have the money for the Fyre Festival and they're parents don't have the money to do what's being doing here. Those are the domains of the pretty thoroughly rich.

you know so much scrutiny is placed on student athletes..with people assuming that they are "lesser" students, getting into college by ill-intentioned means...

then you see wealthy folks being able to side door into college using athletics...and they aren't even athletes.... completely fraudulent..


It's crazy because I now the USC AD involved in this.... they ran an annual NCAA clearinghouse workshop I would attend.... in fact they asked me to help them adjust their workshop for people involved in high school athletics because of the success we've had at our school.... I worked with them..then all of the sudden, they fell off....no more workshop, no nothing...

now I see why.... the Feds were on her...


crazy...

And I apologize if this was already discussed.

https://www.paloaltoonline.com/news/2019/03/12/stanford-coach-among-dozens-indicted-in-college-admissions-scandal

"At least one parent paid $6.5 million, according to federal prosecutors."

Mom, Dad...how about this? You give me the $6.5 million and I think I can take care of myself.

Spending no more than $150,000 per year, I could live off that for 43+ years. And $150,000 would have gone a loooooooong way for an 18 year old in Ohio in 1992.

They're trying to make it look like they're good, solid parents because their spoiled-ass brat is sharp enough to get into USC/Georgetown/Stanford/etc.

My boy said if the parents have to pay that much, then this kid probably eats boogers & walks into walls.

94. "8 elite schools hit with 1st lawsuit in admissions bribery scam (link)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Granted, I haven't read the actual complaint. I'm only going by the following paragraphs from the story in the link. But if those are the main reasons Olsen is suing, this suit sounds flimsy as fuck.

***

https://abcnews.go.com/US/elite-schools-hit-lawsuit-massive-college-admissions-bribery/story?id=61679252

Olsen, according to the lawsuit, applied to Yale University in 2017, submitting "stellar standardized test score, and a glowing profile that including being a talented athlete and dancer."

Olsen noted that she paid an application fee of approximately $80, according to the suit.

"Had she known that the system at Yale University was warped and rigged by fraud, she would not have spent the money to apply to the school," the lawsuit states. "She also did not receive what she paid for — a fair admissions consideration process."

Olsen contends she had been damaged by the admissions scandal because her degree from Stanford "is now not worth as much as it was before, because prospective employers may now question whether she was admitted to the university on her own merits, versus having parents who were willing to bribe school officials."

Parents obsessing over their kids getting into good colleges is nothing new, but committing actual crimes to make it happen would seemingly require a particular mindset and financial position. When the Justice Department announced yesterday charges and indictments in an absolutely batshit college admission cheating scandal, in which wealthy parents are accused of paying tens of millions of dollars to a fraudulent group called Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) in order to get their kids into “selective” colleges, we got a look at exactly what that mindset and financial position looks like.

The parents participating in this scheme would have to be wealthy enough to pay a $200,000 bribe to a coach in order to get their kid admitted as an “athlete,” but not wealthy enough to go the Charles Kushner route and pay $2.5 million straight to Harvard to get his doofus son Jared enrolled. They’d have to be desperate enough to knowingly commit conspiracy and fraud just to buy an ultimately meaningless status symbol, but not savvy enough to do it without getting caught. They’d have to be accustomed to buying their way out of predicaments, and too entitled to think it could come back to haunt them. Who fits that profile? Turns out it’s mostly business people, CEOs, and private equity schmucks, who learned about the cheating scheme through the gilded grapevine.

William McGlashan, 55, is a resident of Mill Valley, California. He is a senior executive at the global private equity firm Texas Pacific Group (TPG) and a founding partner of TPG Growth, an offshoot of TPG. He’s charged with conspiracy and fraud for participating in the college entrance exam cheating scheme for his son, and for bribing a USC assistant athletic director to label his son as a recruited athlete to facilitate admission. Though most of the recorded phone calls featured parents who seemed nervous about engaging in federal crimes, McGlashan was more cavalier, saying at one point, in response to a cooperating witness asking for a photo of his non-athlete son so he could photoshop it onto someone else playing sports: “Okay, Okay. Let me look through what I have. Pretty funny. The way the world works these days is unbelievable.” TPG placed Bill McGlashan on leave yesterday.

Agustin Huneeus Jr., 53, lives in San Francisco and works for his dad’s vineyard and wine company. He is charged with participating in the college entrance exam cheating scheme and paying bribes to get his daughter designated as a water polo recruit in order to facilitate her admission to USC. According to the charging documents, Huneeus had suspicions that TPG executive Bill McGlashan was involved. Huneeus is quoted asking the cooperating witness about it: “Is Bill McGlashan doing any of this shit? Is he just talking a clean game with me and helping his kid or not? ’Cause he makes me feel guilty. or are you just taking care of him in a way he doesn’t know because you have other interests with him?”

Douglas Hodge, 61, lives in a $16-million mansion in Laguna Beach, California. Before he retired in 2017, he was the CEO of PIMCO, an investment firm that manages more than $1.69 trillion. According to the charging documents, Hodge first contacted William Singer, the man who is accused of running the scheme, in 2008 to ask for help on his daughter’s application to Georgetown University. He then allegedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to help his son and daughter get into USC as “athletes.” Court docs say that the younger daughter’s falsified application to USC listed her as the co-captain of a Japanese national soccer team.

Elizabeth, 56, and Manuel Henriquez, 55, are a married couple living in a $12 million home in Atherton, California. Manuel is the founder and CEO of Hercules Capital, a venture capital firm that claims nearly $2 billion in assets under management. According to CNBC, the stock price of the firm fell more than nine percent Tuesday afternoon after news of the charges broke. Henriquez’s LinkedIn page says he attended Boston University and Northeastern University. Both Manuel and Elizabeth are charged with conspiracy and fraud for participating in the college entrance exam cheating scheme for both their daughters, and also for bribing former Georgetown tennis coach Gordie Ernst to designate a player spot for their older daughter in order to facilitate admission. In all, they are accused of paying more than $400,000 in bribes and for the test-cheating scheme. (Ernst, who stepped down as Georgetown tennis coach last year, has also been indicted.) Hercules Capital announced today in a statement that Manuel Henriquez had “voluntarily stepped aside” as chairman and CEO.

Robert Flaxman, 62, of Laguna Beach, California is the founder and CEO of a real estate development firm called Crown Realty & Development, which claims a portfolio of $600 million for properties primarily in California, Arizona, Virginia, Idaho, and North Carolina. It also has a weirdly shitty website. Flaxman is accused of paying $250,000 to KWF get his son designated as an athletic recruit to facilitate admission to the University of San Diego, and paying $75,000 to help his daughter cheat on her ACT.

Jane Buckingham, 50, lives in Beverly Hills, California, and is the CEO of a Los Angeles-based boutique marketing company that specializes in “youth culture,” according to Bloomberg. The Bloomberg report says Buckingham is “a lifestyle guru and marketing consultant frequently quoted in television and newspaper interviews as a self-proclaimed pesky whipper-snapper expert.” She is charged with paying $50,000 to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her son. According to the charging documents, in a conversation with a cooperating witness, she implied that getting her son into USC would be a monumental task: “I know this is craziness, I know it is. And then I need you to get him into USC, and then I need you to cure cancer and in the Middle East.”

Gordon Caplan, 52, lives in Greenwich, Connecticut and is co-chairman of the international law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher, based in New York City. The firm has has 700 lawyers in 10 offices in six countries. He’s charged with paying $75,000 to KWF to falsify his daughter’s ACT scores. He also allegedly considered having a KWF representative take online classes under his daughter’s name to boost her grades in order to strengthen her college application. In the documents, he is quoted as saying, “To be honest, I’m not worried about the moral issue here. I’m worried about the, if she gets caught doing that, you know, she’s finished.” Caplan was put on leave by his firm today. In a statement, Willkie Farr & Gallagher said, “This is a personal matter and does not involve Willkie or any of its clients. In light of the seriousness of the matter, Mr. Caplan has been placed on a leave of absence from the firm and will have no further firm management responsibilities.”

Gregory, 86, and Marcia Abbott, 59, live in multi-million dollar homes in New York City (Upper East Side) and Aspen, Colorado. Gregory is the founder and chairman of a food packaging business called International Dispensing Corp. He founded the company in 1995. Gregory and Marcia are both charged with conspiracy and fraud for paying $125,000 to KWF for a fake proctor to write in the correct answers on their daughter’s college entrance exams. The New York Post went to the couple’s Park Avenue home yesterday and spoke to a man who identified himself as the couple’s son. The man gave a full-throated defense of the Abbotts, insisting they were the victims:

“They got roped into some guy who f–king cheated them,” said the man, who referred to the defendants as his “parents” but later claimed to be a “friend of the family.”

“They’re in their 60s, but they’re also … removed from the real world,” he said. “They don’t f–king understand this s–t.”

Robert Zangrillo, 52, of Miami, is the founder and CEO of a private investment firm called Dragon Global. Zangrillo is the lead investor for a controversial Miami development project in Little Haiti that would redevelop a historically black, immigrant area of the city into luxury shops and apartments. He is charged with paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for the college exam cheating scheme, for bribes in order to get his daughter designated as an a crew recruit for USC, and for someone to take classes on his daughter’s behalf so she would receive better grades. By Wednesday, Dragon Global’s website appeared to have been taken down completely. The webpages say, “Maintenance mode. Sorry for the inconvenience. Our website is currently undergoing scheduled maintenance.”

Stephen Semprevivo, 53, of Los Angeles, California is the “chief strategy and growth officer” at a company called Cydcor, which provides outsourced sales teams. He is charged with bribing Georgetown tennis coach Gordie Ernst to fraudulently designate his son as a tennis recruit to facilitate admission. Semprevivo’s status at Cydor is unclear; he is no longer listed on the company’s executive team page.

Davina Isackson, 55, and Bruce Isackson, 61, are a married couple living in Hillsborough, California. Bruce is the president of a real estate development firm called WP Investments. The Isacksons are accused of paying $251,249, in the form of Facebook stock, to KWF in exchange for help getting their oldest daughter fraudulently admitted to UCLA as a soccer recruit. They are also accused of paying an additional $101,272 in Facebook stock to KWF in exchange for them falsifying their youngest daughter’s ACT score. Finally, they are accused of transferring yet another $249,420 worth of stock to KWF, which was then used to pay former USC administrator Donna Heinel in exchange for Heinel getting their youngest daughter admitted to USC as a crew recruit. At one point, while discussing the scheme with the cooperating witness, Bruce Isackson was recorded saying, “I’m so paranoid about Davina, I go, ‘I really don’t want you talking on the phone to about this.’ You know, I’m thinkin’, you know, are they—I mean, I can’t imagine they’d go through the trouble of tapping my phone—but would they tap someone like your phones?” Bruce is still listed on the company’s principals page.

Felicity Huffman, 56, is an actress living in Los Angeles, California. Married to actor William H. Macy, the couple paid $15,000 to KWF to have someone correct the wrong answers on their daughter’s SAT.

99. "Are they going to address legacy admissions now?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This scandal doesn't include those rich enough to outright pay millions via donations to the school and have their children enroll into the university. It does not address wealthy alums that spend money on the school with children that are accepted to the universities in a higher fashion than the true beneficiaries of affirmative action: white women.

Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband reportedly don’t want to take any plea deal that would result in them serving prison time for allegedly paying bribes to get their daughters into college — a strategy that may result in them serving even more time behind bars.

The “Full House” star and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were indicted on conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, plus a new charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering on Tuesday, prosecutors said.

And while other celebs involved in the college admission scandal — including actress Felicity Huffman — have accepted their guilt, Loughlin and Giannulli are fighting the charges rather than accept a deal that includes prison time, People reported Tuesday.

“They weren’t ready to accept that. They’re really not seeing how serious this is,” a source familiar with the legal discussions told People.

“They decided to roll the dice, and it may have been a bad gamble. Now they’re in worse shape than before,” the source further told the celebrity news outlet.

Adam Citron, a former Westchester County prosecutor, told The Post that Loughlin and Giannulli’s window for leniency from a judge is closing.

“The prosecution is not waiting,” Citron said. “The prosecution is moving forward and the window is closing.”

Citron added that the couple’s new indictment on money laundering charges makes it more likely they could face “significant jail time,” rather than just a few months.

A former federal prosecutor from the Southern District of New York pegged their possible sentence to about four years if they choose to plead guilty.

“We don’t know all the facts, but it will be significant,” Ellen Zimiles, who now works at Navigant Consulting, said.

“The fact that they used a nonprofit and lied about what they were doing — and that some of them had a discussion about lying — that makes it worse,” Zimiles added.

Loughlin and Giannulli allegedly paid a combined $500,000 to get daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose into the University of Southern California as crew recruits — even though neither participated in the sport.

They even had the girls pose for “action” pictures on rowing machines, which were submitted to the school alongside phony athletic profiles.

101. "where they fucked up was creating fake charities and stuff"
In response to Reply # 100


  

          

I don't think the admissions part would draw the same ire without some of the financial crimes they committed to launder cash and support the lies.

Probably their biggest crime of all is not being rich enough to game the admissions system the old fashioned way.
