Classmate FORGED letters of rec... What do I do?

Postby amus » Sat Jan 30, 2010 12:54 pm

There is girl in many of my classes and this last semester, we've gotten fairly close. I wouldn't say we're best friends or anything, but we've hung out a couple of times outside class... mainly to discuss papers we're working on or to share class notes.

Anyways, the other day we were both talking about grad school applications and the topic of letters of recommendation came up. I casually asked her who she asked and her response was "I actually didn't ask anyone... promise not to say anything?... I just made up my own letters of recommendation and signed the envelope with my professor's name... I mean, it's not like they'll know the difference and if I don't get into grad school I don't know what I'll do with my life..."

At this point my jaw was literally down to the floor in disbelief!!! I couldn't believe what she had told me!!! I've worked VERY hard to form some form of a relationship with my professors this semester and I can't believe that she would do something so... crazy! So now what? We're applying to some of the same schools and I feel like I have an obligation to say something, but I don't want to seem like a "tattletale" to the universities I'm applying to... but the injustice of it all makes me want to scream! Is it likely that she'll just get caught?

Ahhh I'm so annoyed at the nerve of this girl, but I don't know what I should or shouldn't do...suggest:www.sosonike.com

If you're real... they could very well find out. It's pretty difficult to write two or three LORs and a personal statement all in different styles. But then again, they don't read them that closely.

I can't believe that four of you responded to a spam post.

Don't buy the pirated Jordans. I bought some Pumas from China once thinking that they were the real deal. One vendor sent me cheap knock offs. The other just took my money. I vowed revenge or something. I forgot all about these incidents until I read this post. I'll have to get around to that "revenge for stolen Puma money thing" eventually.

Oh well, back to message board banter.

As far as spammers go, at least this one is mildly entertaining. But someone please save us with the banhammer.

I can't believe that there were at least two more serious/semi-serious responses after the above exchange.
