Will children at center of college admissions scandal pay a price along with their parents? – Los Angeles Times

Thursday, March 14, 2019

A USC spokesman said Wednesday that students who applied for admission in the current cycle — which is underway for fall admits — and are tied to the scheme will be denied admission. That includes about half a dozen applicants.The school will also conduct a case-by-case review for current students and graduates who may have taken part in the scheme.

“Children”?

While one or more individuals maybe be “innocent bystanders” in their parents’ actions, others were involved.  I don’t think that “innocent bystanders” should be penalized until them demonstrate that they can’t or won’t meet the standards. Those involved deserve anything they get.  Graduates are probably “untouchable”.

What a mess.

A friend shared a story he heard recently, over eggs and toast at a local eatery. A citizen needed an MRI. He asked the price, and the regional hospital quoted him $1,500. He looked concerned, mentioned that was expensive, and the provider offered that the cash price was $500. Curiously, that $500 is exactly what his insurance plan would have him pay. For a lot of people, this looks like a wash.

A peek behind the curtain?

I’ve often thought that there’s a “big club” that I ain’t in to fleece the medical consumer.  Gooferment, Big Medicine, and Big Insurance are the conspiring club members.

Argh!
