Actresses Lori Loughlin (“Full House”) and Felicity Huffman (“Desperate Housewives”) are among 46 being charged in a massive college admissions cheating scheme between the super rich, using their money to get their children into elite universities. As of March 13, the FBI has charged three people for organizing therese scams, two SAT/ACT exam administrators, one exam proctor, one college administrator, nine coaches at elite schools, and 33 parents who paid enormous sums to guarantee their children’s admissions into these low-acceptance (fix) schools. According to the FBI some parents have spent from $200k to $6.5 million for guaranteed admissions.

The Ringmaster of this scheme has been identified as Rick Singer, who has already pled guilty for some charges. Singer started a non-profit organization where parents would come to him and ask for his help to get into elite universities like USC, Yale, and Georgetown. Singer’s organizations had two methods. The first method was asking the parent’s student to take the SAT/ACT and having someone who is- authorities say- “very smart” retake those tests for them, changing some of their answers to get a better score. In some cases, the parents would take their child to a therapist to claim a disability to get their child more time to take the standardized tests. Singer’s second method included him getting in touch with athletic coaches, attempting to get them in through the athletic route. Some students even faked their pictures, posing as athletes, bribing the coaches to help get in the school.

Upon this information being released, Lori Loughlin was released on a $1 million bond Wednesday after appearing in federal court in Los Angeles in connection with her alleged role in the scandal.
