They’re not so smug now.

The daughter of a CEO whose parents allegedly paid big bribes to get her into Georgetown University “gloated” about being fed the answers to her SATs, according to prosecutors.

Isabelle Henriquez’s parents — Manuel, the founder and CEO of Hercules Capital, and Elizabeth — were among dozens of well-heeled moms and dads charged with bribing their kids’ way into top colleges in the massive admissions scam that on Tuesday rocked the nation.
