College Admission Scandal

March 14, 2019

The college admission scandal continues.

In a report released by CNN, two students from Stanford have filed a lawsuit for unfair competition.

U.S. Attorney for District of Massachusetts Andrew Lelling announces indictments in a sweeping college admissions bribery scandal, during a news conference, Tuesday, March 12, 2019, in Boston.

Students who got into college because of bribery, falsification of resumes and other devious means will so realize that a degree does not guarantee a job. Outstanding grades in college, internships and apprenticeships with college professors and sending out tons of resumes and hitting the streets is going to land them that prestigious job.

From CNN’s article:

Students Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods allege in part negligence, unfair competition and violations of consumer law, according to the suit filed Wednesday in US District Court for the Northern District of California. The lawsuit asks for a variety of relief, including compensatory and punitive damages, restitution and other relief deemed proper by court.

The suit alleges Olsen and Woods have been damaged in that their degrees are not worth as much because prospective employers may question whether they were admitted to the school on their own merits "versus having parents who were willing to bribe school officials."

The lawsuit names Stanford, the University of Southern California, UCLA, the University of San Diego, the University of Texas at Austin and Wake Forest, Yale and Georgetown universities as defendants. The schools were cited in the stunning nationwide conspiracy that federal prosecutors unveiled Tuesday.
