Maybe the celebrities should pay the college tuition for a number of students with good grades and SAT scores that cannot afford those expenses on their own?

The parents that did this need jail time. All the students need to be kicked out of the schools they are attending and all class credits CANCELED. NO CREDIT at all.

Ever since OJ, the rich and famous hire attorneys to get them out of the troubles they made for themselves. What does it tell the other rich parents wanting to do the same thing for their children?

They ARE criminals.....they should get jail time like anyone else that BREAKS THE LAW. Why should they get any privilege, who are they?????

I'd say more probation than jail time, though. Also depends on how much money someone was scammed out of.

all credits earned by the student should be cancelled and they should have a lifetime ban from the school in question. A permanent aster ix added to their college transcript.

Non-violent crimes, jails over-crowded. These are not jail-worthy; but hit 'em in the pocketbook! Hard! That's where it hurts the most. And I love the idea of banning their kids from certain campuses.

They should have to serve 10 years community service and pay the tuition for the five students who were closest to getting in.

I've considered it . . . but, the cost vs. efficiency makes it highly unlikely. At this point in life, taking out a $60,000+ loan to save maybe $3,000 a year is stupid.
