“Being bullied isn’t what they’re afraid of, it’s public shaming.”

Maybe it’s neither bullying nor shaming. Maybe they’re terrified that they might be shunned, and being ignored is intolerable for narcissists.

“This is all overblown imo. These girls didn’t harm anybody. It’s a very big school, and I truly doubt their being let in kept anybody out”

Surely, you jest. Amazing opinion, but you are entitled to it.

Did you forget the “/s” OUCH!

One of the girls ( IIRC it was the younger one ) even posed on a rowing machine, as if to "prove" she was on the crew team. And both lied in interviews at the school.

Hollyweirdos are stinking hypocrites and liars.

“I truly doubt their being let in kept anybody out.”

Well, those two Gianulli asses were in chairs that could’ve been occupied by two honorable students. So there’s that.

They could always join the local Antifa chapter and fit right in beating up conservatives.

You must be talking about the basketball and football teams filled with minorities. Women’s men’s lacrosse and other sports have the highest gpas.

I think the girls may be victims. I mean, how much control did they have over what their parents did?

These girls may not be the brightest girls, but they are not mentally challenged. What 18 year old do you know who would not know that they were not a competitive rower, or other athlete in high school? And then know something was faked when they got admitted to college based on their "athletic ability".

They knew what they were doing, and the kids who got 1000 point jumps in their SAT scores also knew what was going on.

USC athletic programs can afford to BUY talent. How many colleges have bought football championships? They pretend they are amateurs. OU spent how long on suspension for no-show jobs and free cars for it's football team?

Is that the point you are trying to make? We're Conservatives. That means the Not Stupids. Try blowing smoke up some other asses.

WHITE LIBERAL PRIVILEGE
All White.All Rich.All Liberal Progressive.

The haves taking from the have-nots

Makes you wonder what the Clintons had to do to get their idiot offspring into college.

Obama’s kids got in easy——they applied as the children of a former black foreign exchange student. (/s)

A certain amount might be reimbursed per course, but even a community college required additional money.

That was my experience. I was working 40hr a week, so it was like gravy. In reality, it barely paid for books some semesters. I ended up going to Calif State university at Northridge. i could afford that putting myself through.

Multi-million dollar yacht belonging to USC Board of Trustee Chair Rick Caruso; daughter Olivia Gianulli, was aboard when bribery scandal broke.

celebitchy.com

19-year-old Olivia was on Rick Caruso’s yacht in the Bahamas. Caruso’s daughter, Gianna, Olivia and several other friends were spending spring break in the area. Gianna and Olivia have been friends for quite some time, occasionally posting photos of them together on social media.

Caruso, a billionaire who has major real estate holdings including The Grove in L.A., tells TMZ, “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 is off the yacht. Caruso was elected Chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees last year. We’re told the Board will NOT decide the fate of Olivia and other students involved in the case. That decision is left squarely in the hands of the University’s President.

By the way, Caruso came out strong Tuesday in the wake of the indictments, saying, “The charges filed today against employees of USC are disturbing and the alleged activity is absolutely wrong. I am saddened that these people would abuse their positions of trust and, as the government has alleged, victimize USC in the process. There is no option other than zero tolerance for this type of behavior. As a result, USC has fired the alleged wrongdoers.”

I went to college piecemeal, working full time and going nights. Because of working in different locales, my transcript would show...

El Centro Jr. College...Dallas
Georgia State ... Atlanta
York University ... Toronto
University of Texas at Dallas

And I racked up zero student debt!

They are. These schools are a joke and most people who get in are unremarkable zombies who get in because they wrote about how much of a communist they are in their application.

I think the girls were politely asked to leave by those who were the real players in the scandal not the fall guys charged. on social media the students were starting to talk and social connections were being made by the students at the college on who the real players on this scandal . from what I understand sevral twitter and Instagram accounts have been closed along with the purging of Facebook and Redditt accounts of posts dealing with the scandal. I think this scandal is only going to get bigger

Yes USC has only a 17% acceptance rate and yes for white males, non-athletes, maybe 5%? The odds are practically zero. The rate for Stanford for everyone is 5% which means practically zero for everyone, even those who have perfect GPAs, perfect SATs, and are Olympic-level athletes. . .

If your rich and your kids are stupid, sent them to USC.

Stanford is more selective, but USC students are far from stupid.

Stanford:

3.95 GPA, 4.8% admission rate

USC:

3.73 GPA, 16% admission rate
