Olsen et al v. Singer et al Featured Case

Plaintiffs Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods are both students at Stanford University. Plaintiffs alleged that they did not receive what they paid for--a fair admissions consideration process--when Olsen applied to Yale University and Woods applied to the University of Southern California. Both also allege that their Stanford degree "is now not worth as much as it was before, because prospective employers may now question whether [they] were admitted to the university on [their] own merits."
