Admissions scam adds insult to injury for minority applicants
In what a federal prosecutor called "the largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice," dozens of people were charged in a bribery scheme to cheat on SAT and ACT entrance exams and buy admission to elite schools for the children of wealthy parents. Through payments disguised as donations, parents involved in the cheating scandal paid between $250,000 and $400,000 per student to its "mastermind," William Singer, who then laundered the money through his college counseling service to bribe college officials and coaches. Between 2011 and 2018, Leling said, the charged parents paid Singer about $25 million in total to guarantee their children's admission to schools such as Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, USC, University of Texas, UCLA and Wake Forest.
