The unfolding drama known as Varsity Blues has consequences that reach far beyond the classroom for just the rich and famous. Most people are well aware of the college bribery scandal where parents of wealthy people bribed officials to have their kids obtain a seat at a major University they did not earn and were not entitled to. Some people have the idea this is a crime without a victim… that train of thought ends if it’s your child who was deprived a seat in that school after paying to apply.
Alleged local mastermind Rick Singer has already pleaded guilty to Federal charges including racketeering, conspiracy and money laundering. He faces up to 65 years in prison. His victims include academia, many of our children and the idea that we have a level playing field based on merit. The people charged in the scam include names like Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman, vineyard owner Austine Huneeus and private equity manager William McGlashan. The schools involved include Stanford, Yale, Wake Forest, University of San Diego, USC and UCLA.
Every seat taken by someone who didn’t earn that seat deprives someone both short term and long term. Many students were left to believe “Why Try Your Best… Someone With More Money Will Buy Their Way In Anyway”. This is a sad reality and we hope as a society we can do better. Factual stories like these are just another reason why we work to give a voice to someone who might otherwise remain silent.
