Adam Wheeler falsified his transcripts and etc., to get himself accepted as a transfer student at Harvard... after having been dismissed from Bowdoin due to academic dishonesty. Harvard only realized what he'd done in his senior year, when he applied for Fulbright and Rhodes scholarships by listing someone else's work as his own. One of the profs reviewing the scholarship applications recognized the listed work as being that of a fellow professor, and thus not the student's. Wheeler is being brought up on charges, including larceny, due to having, basically, stolen the over $45k in financial aid he'd received in order to pay for his schooling. http://www.bostonherald.com/news/re...accused_of_falsifying_documents_from_harvard/ Interestingly, he was denied an internship at McLean Hospital because they found that he'd lied on his application. See, McLean did a background check. But for Harvard, the kid somehow was able to falsify and submit fake SAT scores, MIT transcripts, Phillips Academy transcripts, false professor references, etc, and got in without a second glance.
