I was talking to my friend about the common application, and I could tell that he was really exaggerating his actual accomplishments in order to make himself look better. This got me thinking. How do colleges know if you are lying or not? For example, my friend would put that he was the President of a club, when he was really the VP. He would aslo put that he was a district wrestling winner when he was really the sub-district winner. Do colleges really know if you are lying?
