This was just one firm in California that was performing this service as I understand it. This case could be the tip of the iceberg. There is no telling how widespread this is and how long it’s been happening.
It’s quite possible that we all know someone who missed out on admission to their college of choice due to someone cheating their way in.
This whole thing stinks to high heaven. I think we all have come to realize that big donors and legacies get a leg up on admissions but this crap is out of control.
