Olivia Jade's Former Classmate Shares Thoughts on College Admissions Scandal

YouTube vlogger Harlow Brooks went to high school with Lori Loughlin‘s daughter Olivia Jade and she’s opening up about her thoughts on the college admissions scandal.

Harlow says that she was “not surprised” to hear about what happened.

“There’s a network of five to seven or so private schools in Los Angeles that are $30,000 to $45,000 in tuition every year. The work is literally harder than college. It is insane what these students go through to go to these schools because their parents think that they need to. They want them to go to Yale and Harvard and USC,” she said.

Harlow opened up about the intense workload that students at the private high school were given and how she had a hard time keeping up without anything else going on in her life. She noted that Olivia was working on her YouTube channel while in high school.

“How does she travel for YouTube? How does she have time to make YouTube videos? An arrangement with the school or something?” she said. “It just didn’t make sense to me. These schools, your life is literally, 100 percent school.”

“Seeing as I am a person who loves school and do really well at school and I couldn’t even handle the workload — I know that she’s publicly stated that she doesn’t like school — I can’t even imagine making it through a school like that if you are not committed,” Harlow added.

    This girl waves her arms and hands, too much. She is capitalizing on a supposed acquaintance with the Miss Jade. Good name for her …Jaded…
    Anyway, She does an almost ten minute dissertation on Miss Jade. Who cares what she is trying to sell, where she came from, when she got there, and why she is selling her dribble?
    Why is she telling us she had ‘such acne’…is she next going to sell us an acne cream? g i v e us a b r e a k.
