Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods are two Stanford students who have filed a lawsuit against Yale, USC, and more in the wake of the college admissions scandal.
The colleges that Woods and Olsen are suing are: Yale, USC, University of Texas at Austin, University of San Diego, Yale University, Wake Forest University, University of Southern California, and Georgetown University.
Now, the two students are saying their degree is worth less. In the complaint, the lawsuit states that Woods’ degree (along with Olsen’s) “is now not worth as much as it was before, because prospective employers may now question whether she was admitted to the university on her own merits, versus having rich parents who were willing to bribe school officials.”

Olsen & Woods Lawsuit: Read in Full Below
Within the lawsuit, which you can read above in full, the lawsuit states that Olsen and Woods were both excellent students and athletes.
For Olsen in particular, the lawsuit reads in part, “Had she known that the system at Yale University was warped and rigged by fraud, she would not have spent the money to apply to the school. She also did not receive what she paid for — a fair admissions consideration process.”
Olsen Is a Member of the Stanford Dollies
Per the official site, the Stanford Dollies are a five-person dance team: “Together, we make merry musical mayhem all over the Peninsula and the world. Dollies dance to the live music of the band with choreography entirely of their own (and past Dollies’) design. Their style ranges from modern to ballet to jazz, but is always unique and impressive.”
Woods Is From Nevada, & Is Pre-Med at Stanford
According to a Stanford bio of Woods, she is pre-med at Stanford, works in a lab on campus, and is majoring in human biology.
