The investigation into a nationwide college admissions scandal — code named Operation Varsity Blues — was revealed Tuesday morning.
The details in this are mind boggling:
—”Parents allegedly paid to have photos of their children edited onto the bodies of pole vaulters or water polo players to get them recruited as athletes, often dissing their kids’ athletic abilities along the way.”
—”When a parent suggested a $160,000 donation could secure a spot on Stanford University’s sailing team, a cooperating witness running the scheme scoffed, saying, “that’s not all it takes. This is not TJ Maxx or Marshall’s.”
—”The Yale University women’s soccer coach allegedly knew a recruit didn’t even play soccer, but was paid $1.2 million and let her on the team anyway.”
