    Not to mention one of the best engineering programs in the country. My son had several scholarship opportunities to multiple schools and we picked ASU after visiting multiple schools and doing extensive research on each program.

    He is a freshmen this year! Go Devils!

    She's major, but it's arguable that she's the "most beloved". She's in a lot of our stuff, but I would say that Candace Cameron Bure is the top actress on the network.

    UCLA and some others had soccer coaches involved, soccer is a pretty big sport at that level.

    Being a celebrity is really backfiring here. There's what, 30-40 people involved in this scandal and yet we only hear these two names come up, every, single, time. As someone who's never watched their shows, I find myself wondering about the other names on the list and what their backgrounds are. I caught the end of a radio clip today that said someone had AZ connections, but I missed the name.

    What do you guys think should happen to the kids involved? Seems to me that students that played by the rules should get those spots, but I'm open to other considerations.

    If there is no proof they knew and the kids are good students I say leave them be. If not good students? Make them give you their spots. Just my two cents.

    Everything I have seen re Laughlin's kids is that they are (big surprise!) spoiled, entitled, shallow brats. Not feeling bad at all about any fallout they (or the parents) are suffering from this.

    Not that it will likely negatively impact the rest of their (or any of these kids') lives, given where they started out.

    I'm thinking that if the students had no knowledge of the crime, they should be able to reapply to the college. If they can qualify, they should be able to finish without any additional consequence.

    If they knew and/or can't qualify even after the head start, sayonara sweetheart.
