This now marks the first time a school involved in the massive college admissions scandal has taken the step to drop a student. According to the school’s website, two people applied to the university with fake athletic credentials from women’s soccer coach Rudy Meredith. Although one was accepted the other was denied.

Yale has decided not to name the student whose admission has been rescinded. However, the school did say Meridth was aware of the college scheme but Yale was not. It was also noted that Meredith, who resigned last November, was one of 50 individuals charged in the alleged college admissions scam.

As we previously reported, the university, along with other top schools like the University of Southern California, Stanford and Georgetown, were tied up in the scam allegedly organised by mastermind Rick Singer. The alleged scheme involved helping students cheat on entrance exams, as well as getting non-athletic students admitted on fake athletic scholarships.

He is expected to appear in court later this week.
