And apparently even the Dean of Admissions at MIT is not immune to it (emphasis mine):
Marilee Jones, the dean of admissions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, became famous for urging stressed-out students competing for elite colleges to calm down and stop trying to be perfect. […]
Ms. Jones on various occasions had represented herself as having degrees from Albany Medical College, Union College and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, but she had no degrees from any of those places, said Phillip L. Clay, the chancellor of M.I.T.
Ms. Jones has a brass pair on her. To openly chide students for puffing up their applications while knowing all along that she pulled her own acadamic credentials from the deepest, darkest regions of her anal cavity, is truly awe-inspiring. I bet this woman shaves her legs while juggling rabid weasels and rollerblading down a street covered in tacks.
Also, she’s a hypocrit.
Just a tad.
I will give her some credit, though. She owned up to it and didn’t blame anyone but herself.
