College admissions scandal: There's more we don't know about, college consultant says

The process favors the wealthy They can apply to more schools and invest heavily in preparing for tests and essays

It's unclear how the Shameless star is spending his birthday, although hours before, he was supporting Huffman, 56, at the federal detention center in Los Angeles where she was being held on Tuesday. "We will make informed, appropriate decisions once those reviews have been completed".

Loughlin is accused of paying Singer $500,000 to help cheat her daughters' way into the University of Southern California (USC) by bribing rowing coaches at the school to pretend the girls were gifted rowers. An FBI agent stated in an affidavit that Macy was in the room when Huffman first heard the pitch from a scam insider.

Huffman is best known for her role as Lynette Scavo on "Desperate Housewives". For that, she was charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

One of the ways the alleged cheating scheme worked is that students would fake learning disabilities and apply and in many cases receive extra time on ACT and SAT tests and be allowed to take the tests one on one with a proctor.

The intersecting worlds of celebrity, extreme wealth, and higher education have been cleaved open by a recent federal indictment alleging a massive bribing scheme around college admissions.

Ocasio-Cortez's remarks were in response to tweets noting the many ways wealthy people manipulated the US educational system for their children's benefit while constantly disparaging affirmative action, which aims to provide equal educational access to people of color and underrepresented groups that are typically overlooked by leading colleges like those listed in the indictment including Yale, Stanford and the University of Southern California (USC). She, then, appeared in court, where her bond was set at $250,000.

Kozlova led 6-5 and was within two points of winning the first set before Halep forced a tiebreaker in their first meeting. It is important to note that Kozlova struggled with her own serving as she allowed Sasnovich to win 5 return games.

Some of those who were indicted included college coaches, but there's no indication the schools were involved, according to CBS News.

A Hallmark Channel spokeswoman said the network hasn't decided what effect, if any, her arrest will have on programming. According to multiple reports, the actress landed at LAX on Tuesday during the court hearing.

Riddell didn't return several phone calls seeking comment.

The accused, who also include chief executives, financiers, the chairman of a prominent law firm, a winemaker and fashion designer, allegedly cheated on admissions tests and arranged for bribes to get their children into prestigious schools including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California, federal prosecutors said.

"The Department of Justice believes that Yale has been the victim of a crime perpetrated by a former coach who no longer works at the university", Yale's president said in a statement.

USC is reviewing the school's application process, officials said.
