Spurned students sue US colleges in admissions scandal

The makeup obsessed teen and beauty vlogger is a freshman at University of Southern California (USC), a place the Justice Department alleges she was able to secure because her parents Fuller House's Lori, 54, and designer Mossimo Giannulli, 55, allegedly committed mail fraud. "I think they did fine, ' Olivia said on the Zach Sang Show, before joking that her parents were 'hypocrites".

Giannulli has also been sponsored by a number of other companies, including TRESemmé, Princess Polly, Smile Direct Club, Amazon Prime Student, Clinique, Lulus, Windsor, Dolce & Gabbana Beauty, Conair, Boohoo and Smashbox Cosmetics.

Federal prosecutors say 50 people took part in a scheme that involved either cheating on standardized tests or bribing college coaches and school officials to accept students as college athletes - even if the student had never played that sport.

As for the charges, while they range from conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud for the actresses, Singer has reportedly already pleaded guilty to racketeering charges.

In a YouTube video published in August 2018, the social media influencer told her almost 2 million subscribers that she wanted to attend college for the full experience of "game days" and "partying".

At a brief court appearance Wednesday, a judge allowed Loughlin to be released on $1 million bond and travel to the area around Vancouver, Canada, to work but that need appears to no longer be needed.

Toy did not say if any colleges admitted her only child, or where Joshua might have won admission but for any chicanery.

The U.S. college admissions scandal that erupted this week has spawned lawsuits accusing rich, well-connected parents and prestigious schools of conspiring to admit those parents' children at the expense of the less affluent. That's because USA Today is reporting that Hallmark Channel's parent company has dropped Loughlin from any and all future projects.

"I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend", she said in the video.

It is now unknown whether or not Olivia will be expelled from University of Southern California, where she is now enrolled.

"Mostly my parents really wanted me to go because both of them didn't go to college. And it just kind of made it seem like I don't care, I just want to brush it off", the 19-year-old said in the video.

Lawyers for the other plaintiffs did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

She added: "I'm really disappointed in myself". Those include Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman and TPG Growth founder Bill McGlashan.

A Stanford spokesman said the university is reviewing the lawsuit.

As reported by TMZ, Olivia was cruising the Bahamas on a boat owned by the L.A. billionaire when prosecutors announced her mother would face criminal charges for allegedly paying $500,000 in bribes to the university.
