As the college admissions scandal broke and while those involved were name, fans of Lori Loughlin wondered what this meant for her future and how this would impact her work, particularly her role in Netflix's "Fuller House." The college admissions scandal is a serious deal. Now that this has been blown wide open, something needs to be done and changes need to be set in place to give students a fair chance to get into the schools mentioned.

It was revealed that Loughlin allegedly paid bribes of up to $500,000 to an admissions consultant, who fraudulently got their two daughters into the University of Southern California.

Fans wondered how long it would take for Neflix to take action against Loughlin. TMZ reports that Loughlin is not returning to "Fuller House" when Season 5 premieres. The report says that Loughlin was a guest star and there are no plans for her return for the next season.

This should not be a surprise to anyone. Netflix is not the only one to cut ties with the actress. Hallmark also announced they were done with Lori Loughlin. Hallmark released a statement regarding their series "When Calls the Heart," saying the series will not air on Sunday and are considering all creative options related to the hit series.

Last week, the FBI had started an investigation "Operation Varsity Blues," into a number of wealth parents who allegedly paid between $200,000 and $6.5 million to get their children into top universities. The scam allegedly included faking SAT and ACT scores and paying college coaches to have their kids designated as athletic recruits. The parents charged in the case include CEOs, real estate investors, and the co-chair of a global law firm.

It's time that hard working students are given a fair shot when it comes to getting into the college of their choice.
