    I wouldn't, no, because I have morals. Plus I don't believe in bulldozing the way smooth for your kids, so even if I had kids and a shit ton of money I'd still make them get into university the hard way because that's how it should work. But there are plenty of people out there who don't feel that way & wouldn't hesitate to cheat to get their dumb and/or slack ass kid into a good school if they had the means & opportunity.

    I hope all the kids who benefited from their parents' criminal meddling are kicked out. I've heard a lot of "but it's not the kids' fault", and it isn't - not even Lori Loughlin's daughter - but nobody should benefit from this crime.
    You must admit there are a lot of "rich douchebags/fucking Hollywood" comments out there about this. Including on this thread.

    Absolutely. Schadenfreude at work. I don't think reveling in the sorrows of anybody is in keeping with the moral high ground. There but for the grace of God go I, and all that.

    I’m well aware many poor/middle class people would do it as well if they could. There’s also rich people who wouldn’t even dream about doing this. But that doesn’t excuse the fact that these scumbags stole spots from actual, hardworking lids

    Well, of course! That's schadenfraude. Who am I to say who's going to burn in hell over what, but if you're going to, may as well enjoy it.

    On the other hand, Lori Loughlin's daughter seems like a right twat. Hope she gets kicked out.
    I agree that there are people in every social/economic class that are corrupt, but the difference is that the more $$ one has, the more likely it will be swept under the carpet and life will resume as usual in a very short period of time. Yes, LL has lost her Hallmark and Fuller House gigs and her daughters will either go to a different school or not go back at all but its not like this is something that will leave them bankrupt or losing their house or life savings like it would if it were someone in a lower economic category. I'm not condoning that type of behavior from anyone. Just pointing out that the consequences are very different. I'm also not losing any sleep over LL, FH, etc....getting busted. Most likely they will get a pat on the shoulder and back to normal for them.
