Earlier this week, when the internet exploded with the college admissions scam news, we knew repercussions were on the way.
Aside from the embarrassment and shame, these corrupt parents and administrators have brought on to themselves, two students are now taking legal action against these institutions of higher learning.
Stanford students Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods, have filed lawsuits against Yale, USC, the University of Texas at Austin, University of San Diego, Yale University, University of California Los Angeles, Wake Forest University, University of Southern California, and Georgetown University for their involvement in this epic scam.
They basically claim their degrees have lost their value and have no merit considering other students’ parents bribed in their ways onto their campus.
“(Her degree) is now not worth as much as it was because prospective employers may now question whether she was admitted to the university on her own merits, versus having rich parents who were willing to bribe school officials.” read an excerpt from their lawsuit.
True student-athletes know the grind and what’s required to excel in two fields, and unfortunately for the scam schools, Olsen and Woods are both. In the lawsuit, Woods, a current Pre-Med major, claimed she excelled as a student-athlete in high school, while Olsen is currently a member of Stanford’s Dollies dance troupe. Olsen and Woods are also both women of color. They literally represent the type of student you don’t want suing you to oblivion.
Whether they win or not? To be determined. But down the road be on the lookout for similar lawsuits geared towards a broken system that continues to gaslight, lie, and steal from the disadvantaged.
