UNIVERSIY PARK, Pa. (WJAC) — Thursday students and others are reacting to the college admissions scandal.
Wednesday parents and coaches who were charged appeared in court including actress Lori Laughlin who is now facing more fallout.
Hallmark says they are cutting ties with the actress.
Meanwhile students, education leaders and state officials are reacting to the accusations that parents paid money to get their kids into their colleges of choice.
In Pennsylvania, auditor general Eugene Depasquale gave his opinion on the bribery.
“When you're cheatin' for your kids, what type of lesson are you setting? Also, if you don't earn your own admission, it's not worth it's not worth it anyway,” Depasquale said. “The better lesson is even if a kid ends up going to a slightly less prestigious institution, we've got such great universities in this country, let the kids earn wherever they get in and move on from there."
Depasquale says there is no evidence that state-owned or state-related institutions were a part of this scandal.
