    Hello everyone!

    A 26-year-old woman from Carmel, Indiana has pleaded guilty to forging transcripts and letters of reference. (The Indy Star has the full story.)

    In all, the woman forged high school and college transcripts to three different colleges. The bachelor’s degree she eventually earned has been revoked. As part of her plea deal, prosecutors will recommend that she:

    (1) receive five years of probation,
    (2) inform her probation officer about any future applications she may submit,
    (3) pay back the $130,000 in financial aid she received from Cornell, and
    (4) notify any future universities about her plea deal

    The government became involved when she received financial aid. The moral of the story: lying in your applications really isn’t worth it!

    Best of luck with your applications!
