    “It will undermine every accomplishment they have in the future and it will be part of their story forever.”

    I don't know the actress. I've never met her, and really hadn't even heard of her before this story broke.

    But I would be interested to hear if she also believes that other people who got into exclusive universities on something other than their own merit also have this effect and if their future accomplishments will be similarly undermined.

    Either she or her layer is stupid to refuse the original deal. Now she and her husband WILL spend years in prison. And her legal fees just went up. They will probably offer her another deal, but for messing with the Feds, the second deal won’t be so sweet.

    I'm glad that she's concerned about the impact this will have on her children. This is a horrible thing to do to a child. Her children have now been told very publicly (with no fault on their part) that they haven't earned what they have. That's a horrible position to put them in. I'm glad to see that is where her concern is. I hope there is also deep remorse.

    While there is no excuse for this type of behavior, I will at least give her (and the other parents) credit for doing something so underhanded to benefit their children - rather than just themselves. That said, to do something like this shows a total disregard for all others in society outside of their own children...not quite narcissistic behavior, but on the cusp of it. Also, it wound up hurting their children rather dramatically. In the end, play by the rules. You want your kid in a great school or on a great athletic team and you have tons of money? Get them a tutor or a private coach. You'd still be giving them a massive advantage, but you are at least playing by the rules.

    She got poor legal advice, or ignored good legal advice the first go round. She didn't think they'd follow through on such an "important, rich, celebrity" as herself. She gambled and lost. This is a high profile case, and the public is angry. They really can't go light on her now. She bought herself extra charges. If she goes to court and loses, she'll spend a lot more than 1 year in jail.

    Yeah, right.
