On the NY TImes web site:
"The dean of admissions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who had counseled students applying to colleges not to try to 'measure up to everybody else’s standards,' resigned from her post today after acknowledging that she had padded her own résumé.
"Marilee Jones, who was in charge of the office that decides who gets in to the prestigious university and who does not, at a time of fierce competition for entrance to the best colleges, admitted to her supervisors that she had 'misrepresented her academic degrees to the Institute,' school officials said today. . .
"Ms. Jones had claimed on her résumé that she had received degrees from Albany Medical College, Union College, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, but in fact she had not."
