Athletic coaches from Yale, Stanford, USC, and Georgetown, among others, were also implicated as well as parents and exam administrators, federal prosecutors said. In return, Loughlin's two daughters were accepted to USC as "recruits to the USC crew team-despite the fact that they did not participate in crew".
In 2007 Singer began operating the Edge College & Career Network, also known as "The Key" - a college counseling and preparation services business, authorities said.
Most of the students who benefited from the alleged bribes were not aware of the circumstances of their acceptances, according to ABC. Both were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud.
The racketeering conspiracy charges were brought against coaches at schools including Wake Forest, Stanford, Georgetown, the University of Southern California and University of California, Los Angeles.
Martin Fox, 62, the president of a private tennis academy and camp in Houston, is accused of introducing Singer to Center and of arranging similar bribes on two occasions with varsity coaches at the University of San Diego.
Dozens of people, many affiliated with prestigious American universities, face racketeering charges over allegedly facilitating cheating on ACT and SAT tests and bribing college coaches, according to an indictment in US District Court in MA. Presumably the reason Huffman is being charged and not Macy as well is because Huffman is the one they have recorded phone calls of. At Southern California, former women's soccer coach Ali Khosroshahin, former women's soccer assistant coach Laura Janke, water polo coach Jovan Vavic and Senior Associate Athletic Director Donna Heinel also were charged.
"I studied a couple days, but it's not fair a student not studying at all and having somebody else go in and taking it for them", said Suliman.

According to U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling, Singer received $25 million total from wealthy parents to ensure their children got into their top choice of colleges.
Prosecutors said Singer told one parent that he wanted to help the most privileged.
The 200 pages of charging documents in the case were unsealed in Boston federal court.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Boston described it as "a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities".
"For every student admitted through fraud, an honest, genuinely talented student was rejected".
The court filing states Singer paid cash bribes to test proctors as part of the scheme.
Heinel and Huffman were arrested Tuesday morning and were expected to be charged Tuesday afternoon. Secondly, the organization allegedly bribed college coaches to help admit the students into college as recruited athletes, regardless of their actual ability, prosecutors said.
