Inside the Infamous College Admissions Scandal
In March 2019, news broke of a massive college admissions bribery scandal. Among the accused were prominent business people, well-known actors, sports coaches and four of California’s top universities. At the heart of the conspiracy was con man Rick Singer, an author of self-help books and purported college counselor, who masterminded rigging SAT and ACT tests, faking athletic profiles and bribing coaches. Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz – Wall Street Journal reporters who broke major developments in the story – detail the rise and fall of Rick Singer’s elaborate operation in their new book “Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit & the Making of the College Admissions Scandal.” In this hour, we talk with Korn and Levitz about the book and take your questions about the college admissions scandal.

The Takeaway
Coronavirus Test Bill
While coronavirus testing has become more widely available across the country, people are increasingly reporting receiving huge bills for getting a COVID test – which insurance sometimes won’t cover. The law says there needs to be free testing available for all, so what gives? The Takeaway hears from one man who received a $1,800 bill for a test, which he must now pay, and from listeners about the testing bills they’ve been faced with. Then, KFF’s Karen Pollitz breaks down the reasons for these bills and what they say about our medical system at large, as well as what people need to know when going in for a test.
