The Complete List Of Who’s Been Charged In The College Admissions Scandal

Ludmila Leiva

In case you haven’t heard, today news broke of what’s being called the largest college admissions scandal in history.

It goes like this: A man named William Singer, who is the founder of a college-prep business called The Key, accepted millions of dollars from individuals to get their children into elite colleges, such as Yale and The University of Southern California.

How did he do it, you might ask? Singer had an intricate network of accomplices and utilized strategies that ranged from paying standardized test administrators to fake students' test scores to falsely positioning students as competitive athletes. According to U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Andrew Lelling, most clients paid between $250,000 and $450,000 per student. But some paid as much as $6.5 million.

So far, Singer has been charged with obstruction of justice, racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, among other charges. But he’s not the only one being held accountable for this complex, decades-long scheme.
