Exclusive: For less than $300, a private West Hollywood high school with ties to the college admissions scandal issued diplomas to non-students, a Times investigation has found.  https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-college-admissions-scandal-west-hollywood-prep-20190528-story.html 

The Times discovered the diploma arrangement while looking into West Hollywood Prep’s former director, Igor Dvorskiy, who was accused of conspiring with college admissions scandal mastermind Rick Singer.  https://lat.ms/2HziAw2
