Olivia Jade's High School Classmate Couldn't Understand How She Got Into USC

Playing Olivia Jade’s Former Classmate Reveals What She Was Like in High School

A onetime classmate of Olivia Jade Giannulli's said she was always wondered of how she got into the University of Southern California. 

YouTuber Harlow Brooks, 18, who went to high school with Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade at Marymount High School, posted a video to her channel detailing how she was shocked to learn her classmate was admitted to USC. 

"I remember hearing later that Olivia had also gotten into USC, and I was like, 'Wow that's kind of crazy, because USC is kind of very, extremely hard to get into,'" she says in the video. 

As it turns out, Olivia Jade's parents, Loughlin and designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of bribing both of their daughters' ways into USC as part of a sweeping college admissions scam.

Brooks told Inside Edition that Marymount was tough, requiring hours upon hours of homework every night. In fact, it was so difficult that Brooks quit after one week, she said. 

"I just honestly was super kind of impressed at the fact that she handled the school, handled YouTube, handled being a mega social media star and then getting into USC, it was all very impressive to me," Brooks said.

"I think that's why it made sense to me afterward when I found out about the scandal."

Marymount told Inside Edition in a statement that Brooks spent just a few days at the school. "It is unfortunate and disturbing that someone who spent only three days at Marymount would make false, misleading and harmful statements about the school," reads the statement.

Loughlin and Giannulli will appear in federal court in Boston for a preliminary hearing on March 29.
