Phony Harvard student claimed to study at Georgetown
Adam Wheeler, the man who was indicted on Monday with 20 counts of larceny and identity fraud for lying his way into Harvard University, also claimed to attend Georgetown University, according to a résumé leaked by the New Repulbic.
Among the many accomplishments lauded in the résumé, Wheeler included a “Independent Graduate Study” at Georgetown during the Summer of 2008, presumably (and fictitiously) awarded though a “Georgetown Summer Research Grant.”
(Not to mention fluency in French, Old English, Classical Armenian, and Old Persian.)
However, Wheeler’s other academic claims dwarf his Georgetown lie—they include a perfect SAT score, a short stint at MIT where “[he] was, to put it poorly, suckled upon the teat of disdain,” forged recommendation letters, and a false undergraduate transcript, according to the Harvard Crimson.
After the jump, we’ve attached a copy of the résumé that was originally published by TNR.
