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

The ingenuity and moxie it takes to pull something like this off is bordering on enviable. I would never have the stones, or the ego, to try and forge my way through Harvard.

Yes he did get caught, but he got away with it for quite awhile. Makes you wonder...

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.
