Better twist: this is the Duke kid who posted his take-home on TLS

This story is relevant to OP: http://lawshucks.com/2011/10/ex-midlaw- ... ranscript/ (Ex-MidLaw Assoc. Caught Fudging Transcript)

So I would withdraw, if only because it's the safest way to proceed.

I made a good faith error last year when I mistakenly inflated my undergrad GPA by .1 pt on the resume I submitted for a job fair. I realized the error when I got my undergrad transcript and corrected it on the updated resume I submitted at the interview. But this is a whole different ball game.

I really like to believe the best in people...but hell no. The whole "whoa is me, meh parents wanted meh to get good grades story" was just a failed bid to get sympathy. Nope. You doctored it. There will be consequences.

Yeah, I just got a letter from my SA firm asking for various payroll-related paperwork in addition to an official transcript. I can't imagine the dread that would have accompanied the request had the unofficial transcript I submitted had anything wrong with it.
