50+ People Charged In College Admissions Scam: How They Did It

Some people embellish their resumes… others downright lie.

More than fifty people have now been charged in what’s known as the college admissions scam. A cross-country scandal where wealthy parents paid to pass their kids off as star athletes or have entrance exams taken for them.

Two parents are actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin. Huffman pled guilty and served about a week in jail. Loughlin is fighting the charges and it will be an uphill fight.

Prosecutors have reportedly released the resume of Loughlin’s youngest daughter. A resume that says she is a gifted member of her high school’s crew team even though she doesn’t actually row. The resume states she won gold, silver and bronze medals at numerous competitions while in high school. It listed her team finishing 11th in 2016 and 14th in 20-17 at a prestigious event in Boston.

And it goes on to say she has success in both the men’s and women’s boats. Loughlin’s daughter is no longer a student at USC, the school that accepted these claims. Wonder if her next job application will reflect that?
