I'm a sophomore and I was talking to my senior friend that just got accepted to her dream school. Everyone was extremely shocked because it was definitely a big reach. When I was congratulating her I said something about how they must have been impressed with her essays and her hard work really did pay off. After that she informed me that she lied about nearly all of her EC's and some volunteer work. Do colleges check for some sort of proof with these things, or is it only ethically wrong? Will they find out that she didn't really do most of these things?
