The title has to do with an actress on the TV series Full House, Lori Loughlin, being in a get your kid into college scheme. Some of the methods that were allegedly used were having someone else take the SAT for the child and bribing coaches to inflate athletic ability. The goal was the cherish spot at an elite university.
This falls under short term gain for long term pain for me. Sure you can get someone into a college but if they can’t survive the course work it will hurt them in the end. It also destroy a part of their soul to know they have cheated to get ahead.
The parents who wanted their children to have a great resume have put a huge blot on it. They hurt more than helped.
How is this different than legacy admissions? Is it okay to straight out pay for a slot?
