Bribes, Cheating, ACT, SAT, Actors, Coaches. Everyone was involved.
ROI seems to be off on this, you pay $1.2 to get your dumb kid into Yale? You are already rich, so it doesn't matter what the kids do in school.
I know an education is important but being rich is more important. Just seems dumb.
Sadly, it speaks to the sense of entitlement of the wealthy..

$500,000 for two tickets to USC sounds pretty steep. I'd rather have tickets to a Fleetwood Mac concert.
What really bothers me -- I mean, aside from this full frontal assault on the lower rungs of the U.S. aristocracy -- is that I already know the ending to the story: None of the parents go to jail. I suspect that none of them will even have to plead guilty to a felony. And all of them will get off easier than the poor schlub who tries bribing an employee of the Motor Vehicle Department for a passing grade on the written portion of a driver's exam.
