that's quite a stretch - forging transcripts, diplomas, LOR's, and even an SAT score...

Wow that is absurd. Harvard admissions missed the fact that MIT uses number grades rather than letter grades? And how could he forge the test score? I thought SAT score reports were sent directly to the school from the test admin company. How did they not notice it then?

Impressive.
