In light of the college entrance exam cheating scheme, the University of Southern California has said that it will be expelling anyone that gained admission through the scandal, which could include Lori Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade, The Blast reported.
A rep for USC told The Blast it would be conducting a “case-by-case review” of current students and graduates that may have been involved in the cheating scheme. The school said they “will make informed, appropriate decisions once those reviews have been completed.”
The school also told The Blast, new students applying to the school “who are connected to the scheme alleged by the government will be denied admission to USC.”
Olivia allegedly was admitted to USC through the scheme, however , she said in a YouTube video that she was most looking forward to “partying” at the school. She also said, she “didn’t know how much of school” she would actually attend.
Olivia, who has over a million Instagram followers and almost two million YouTube subscribers, said in an interview on the ‘Zach Sang Show’ that she only decided to attend college “mostly because my parents really wanted me to go.”
Olivia’s mother surrendered herself to authorities on Wednesday morning after shooting in Vancouver. Loughlin has since deactivated her social media channels and was set to appear in court the same day. She was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud. She was one of 50 people allegedly involved in the scheme.
Jade and her sister Isabella were accepted to USC as recruits to the school’s crew team. Loughlin and her husband paid an alleged $500,000 to USC to consider their daughters for admission, despite them never being in crew.
