    duke may have applied a different number of credits to each course so that is probably not a valid criticism.

    there may have been easy classes at duke just like there are at many universities, but i personally would not knock the value of a duke degree. just sayin.

    I'm not knocking the value. A Duke degree is prestigious. That former BF is very successful now.

    But there were the same number of credits per course. At the time I was in in school, the guy I was dating had just graduated, and both schools gave 3 credit hours per class. You took one class for either an hour M/W/F or 90 minutes T/Th. I don't know if they still do it this way since it's been many years, but Duke required fewer credits to graduate, period. And me and my BF at the time had similar majors. Mine was business admin and his was economics. He told me that Duke wanted their students to have more time for extracurricular activities.

    My husband's school required more for his degree. He needed 130 credits to graduate (also a state school). He was on the 5-year plan, otherwise he would've had to take 18 hours for several semesters to graduate in 4 years. Which is tough. 15 hours/semester was enough for me. But I also worked part-time all 4 years (plus full-time every summer). I really envied other students who didn't have to work.

    Objectively speaking, I think that Post-PS Ivanka can be quite pretty. Of course, her being who she is and who she is married to, etc basically ruins any real bit of attractivness to me.

    It makes one wonder if they had their children's interests at heart, or their own. Maybe they would have been happy at some obscure college somewhere in Iowa or Indiana where people didn't know or care who their parents were. My mother did this to me when she forced me to go to an all-boys high school for gifted students, it wasn't what I wanted, it was what she wanted so she could brag to her friends. The two years I went there were two of the most horrible years of my life. Ask your kid what they want first, how hard is that, unless your own ego is in the way.

    the number of diff credits doesn't make sense to me. it could be the requirements for PE or a foreign language or something else.

    OMG my previous post clowning Olivia for being dumb enough to buy the $125k yacht package at Frye Festival was just caught hanging out on a yacht owned by the USC Board Of Trustee Chairman! Lol my impression of her wasn’t far off after all.

    I wonder if this USC bribe scandal has some Jeffrey Epstein vibes to it....it doesn’t say if this USC Board of Trustee Chairman was on the yacht but something else seems really sleazy about this.

    My in-laws might know one Family embroiled in this scandal. I am trying to snoop this out- nosey Sunnygir is on the case!


    I wonder if Moissimo sells these skull slippers at a Target? They sure look comfy for cold hard prison floors lol.






    Lori Loughlin's daughter was spending spring break on a yacht owned by the USC Board of Trustees Chairman when the college bribery scandal broke - and the YouTube star has now returned home to face possible expulsion from the school



    • Olivia Jade was enjoying spring break on a yacht owned by Rick Caruso, chairman of USC's Board of Trustees, when news of her mom's indictment broke
    • Caruso told TMZ Olivia got off the boat and has gone home to Los Angeles
    • Olivia's future at USC is uncertain as officials review the applications of each student implicated in the alleged college admissions bribery scheme
    • Lori Loughlin surrendered to federal authorities in Los Angeles on Wednesday
    • She and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of bribing college officials and coaches with $500,000 to get their daughters into USC
    • Prosecutors say they lied and said the girls both rowed crew to get them in as recruits for the rowing team
    • They face five years behind bars if convicted of felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud



    Lori Laughlin's daughter Olivia Jade was sunning herself on a yacht owned by a top University of Southern California official when her perfect college spring break was shattered as federal authorities charged her mother with paying to get the 19-year-old into the school.
    USC Board of Trustees Chairman Rick Caruso confirmed to TMZ that Olivia had been with his daughter, Gianna, and several other friends on the billionaire's yacht in the Bahamas on Tuesday when the sprawling college admissions scandal was revealed.
    Caruso said: 'My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government's announcement yesterday. Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.'
    Olivia has since disembarked and gone back to Los Angeles to face the allegations that could result in her getting expelled from USC.


    THE FULL LIST OF PEOPLE CHARGED WITH COLLEGE ADMITTANCE SCAM

    THE STARS


    Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli spent $500,000 getting their two daughters into USC, according to prosecutors

    Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli
    Actress Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo are among the three most well known names on the list. They have two daughters, Olivia, 20, Isabella, 19, and Mossimo also has a son from a previous relationship. It is not clear which of their children is in college.
    Olivia is a YouTube star who has amounted millions of fans online but she is also enrolled at USC, as is their 19-year-old daughter Isabella.
    They allegedly paid $50,000 to get their oldest daughter into USC under the guise that she was a crew coxswain when in fact she does not row crew.




    Felicity Huffman is accused of paying a $15,000 bribe to get her oldest daughter Sofia into USC

    Felicity Huffman
    Huffman is best known for her role on Desperate Housewives.
    She is married to fellow actor William H. Macy but he has not been charged in the indictment.
    The pair have two daughters, Sofia, 18, and Georgia, 16.
    Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to have her daughter's exam proctored by Mark Riddell.
    Riddell was described by authorities as 'just a really smart guy' who would either sit tests for students, change their answers afterwards or help them actively while they took it in one of two test centers that was 'controlled' by the scheme's 'mastermind' Rick Singer.
    Huffman allegedly used the scheme in December 2017 but the indictment does not specify how Riddell allegedly helped her daughter.
    She considered using it for her youngest daughter, Georgia, but decided in the end that she did not need to, according to authorities.


    THE COLLEGE PROFESSORS, COACHES AND 'MASTERMIND'
    William Rick Singer, the 'mastermind'



    Rick Singer ran The Key, a college preparation business

    Singer is accused of leading the scam.
    He led a college counseling program and, according to prosecutors, also ran a fake charity through which he funneled bribes.
    The scam worked in two ways; he would have people come into the exam to correct students' answers and he also then bribed sports coaches to offer them scholarships, in some cases for sports they did not even play.
    Singer cooperated with authorities as part of the investigation and continued taking bribes after he had been contacted by police.
    Some of his conversations were recorded by police who obtained a wire tap to listen in. He is facing a maximum of 65 years behind bars and has pleaded guilty on all counts he was charged with.
    It remains unclear if he will be given leniency given his cooperation.

    According to court documents, his daughter played high school basketball but was not gifted enough to get recruited as an athlete so he arranged for her to be one.

    He then made a $300,000 'donation' to the fictitious charity run by 'ringleader' Rick Singer and then made monthly $20,000 payments directly to Heinel.

    His daughter got into the college but never joined the basketball team, according to the documents.
    In a phone call with the fixer, they said: 'I’m not going to tell the IRS anything about the fact that your $300,000 was paid to Donna-- Donna Heinel at USC to get [your daughter] into school even though she wasn’t a legitimate basketball player at that level.'

    Buckingham sent a handwriting sample for her son to a test taker and had him take a fake exam at home so he wouldn't know about the fraud, court documents indicate.

    I'd be surprised if Macy escapes being charged. Another source (New York Times, maybe? I can't remember) said that he was in the room when the scheme was discussed. According to the same source, the reason she was the one indicted is that they had her on tape.
