A Stanford University student who was linked to the college admissions scandal has been expelled from the university, according to the school. School officials revealed last week that the student, who has not been identified, was accepted through the “standard process,” but her admission was followed by a $500,000 donation to Stanford’s sailing program via ex-head coach John Vandemoer, the school newspaper reported. “We determined that some of the material in the student’s application is false and, in accordance with our policies, have rescinded admission,” the school wrote in a Tuesday press release. Vandemoer was fired last month after agreeing to plead guilty to accepting donations in exchange for recommending non-sailors as recruited athletes.
