PHOENIX – News of a huge college admissions scandal broke Tuesday, but online conversation Wednesday in the Grand Canyon State was buzzing in defense of Arizona State University.
Prosecutors in Massachusetts have charged 50 people – including an Arizona developer – in a scheme to alter SAT and ACT scores or have their children fraudulently admitted to prestigious schools as student athletes, even if they had never played the sport. They also have released emails exchanged by suspects in the case.
Actress Lori Loughlin, who played Becky in the TV shows Full House and Fuller House, has been charged in the case. In an email between her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and a witness, Giannulli said: “We just met with (our older daughter’s) college counselor this am. I’d like to maybe sit with you after your session with the girls as I have some concerns and want to fully understand the game plan and make sure we have a roadmap for success as it relates to (our daughter) and getting her into a school other than ASU!” azcentral.com reports….
