An interview resurfaced this week revealing that long before Lori Loughlin’s husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was indicted as part of the college admissions scandal, he lied to his father about attending the University of Southern California.
He told the fashion blog The Hundreds in 2016 that he used tuition money his father sent him to start his fashion business instead of going to classes.
But many of the parents charged in the scandal, in which they’re accused of sending bribes of up to $US6.5 million to get their children into elite universities, did attend college and received prestigious degrees.
Some parents attended Ivy League schools: Former Pimco executive Douglas Hodge went to Harvard University, businessman Bill McGlashan went to Yale University, and lawyer Gordon Caplan went to Cornell University.
Many continued their education after receiving their bachelor’s degrees and went to law school or business school.
