    This is happen in my country. And you know what worse, its from the goverment institution. Someone could become a police with a true heart of the real police that serve the citizen. But instead those with true heart never selected, and become like this

    I love the INSANE hypocrisy of this video. A man, who's doing EXACTLY what colleges are doing, only at a better price….he's a criminal and they're not? Wow. How twisted the world is. That's just like the government calling the Mafia criminals when they force you to pay land tax and tell you they'll take away what's your when you don't pay their "legal" version of extortion.

    imagine how the kids (that didn't know their parents were involved) felt when they realized that their parents didn't believe that they could do well on their own and had to create a false version of their child

    My question is if you are a rich parent and you spent all this money to get your kid into college and then you find out your kid is just really stupid and even with all your help still can't graduate what happens then? There is a reason why it is so hard to get into schools like Harvard and Yale and MIT and so on.

    This happened not only for the US student admission, they definitely do this to globe international admission too. I always wonder why these kids that not even hustle on their admission paper or not event came from good Uni from local country could be accepted. Now I know that money talks. 🙂 No offense just feeling mad I guess.

    Amazing they went through all this to put it in the public's eye for what? They could've kept this within the wealthy courtroom as usual. Difference between wealthy criminals and everyday criminals, status! Crime is crime.

    The heartbreaking thing about this is that the parents had no faith in their children's abilities. I think the kids in this get hurt the most. Undermining their sense of competence, humiliating them by not believing in them.

    For all the people who have an issue with AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, think about this scandal and realize that even WITH affirmative action minorities STILL have to fight.

    I love the snide 'they had every advantage yet they still cheated" well if they had every advantage why did they need to cheat? Regardless this story surprised absolutely no one. We all knew this was happening, I mean unless your a naive imbecile.
