Submission + - MIT Dean Uses Fake Resume For 28 Years

Nick_Allain writes: "Boston.com reports that MIT's Marilee Jones resigned "after acknowledging that she fabricated her academic credentials. Jones's fall from grace is full of irony. She made it her life's mission, speaking at schools and conferences around the country, to combat the rising admissions frenzy, telling high school students and their parents that it is more important to be happy than to get into the most famous college or to have the perfect resume". Her resume was a near complete fabrication: "Massachusetts Institute of Technology officials said yesterday, Jones said she had degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Union College, and Albany Medical College, all in New York State. She does not have a degree from any of them"."
