Yale University has rescinded the admission of a student whose family allegedly paid $1.2 million in bribes get her into the Ivy league school. 

It marks the first time a school implicated in the nationwide college admissions bribery scandal has said publicly it has taken action to boot a student as a result of the allegations. 

Tom Conroy, a spokesman for Yale, confirmed in a statement to USA TODAY that "Yale has rescinded the admission of one student as a result of this matter."

The student, whose name was not disclosed by Yale, is identified as "Applicant 1" in the Justice Department's indictment of former Yale women's head soccer coach Rudy Meredith, who is among the 50 defendants in the sweeping case. Meredith resigned from the position in November.
