Whatever happened to that Harvard girl who plagiarized her novel?

<p>Does anybody know? (Maybe someone from Harvard?) I followed the case pretty closely when the Crimson (as well as every other paper in America) covered it, but then it kind of fizzled out.</p>

<p>Just wondering.</p>

<p>She became a peer counsellor (no joke)</p>


<p>That's horrible.</p>

<p>They made a movie about it, and then she wrote a book about being in a movie, and then they made a movie about that, and then she wrote a book about a movie about her writing a book, etc etc</p>

<p>She lost her contract and is "taking a leave" from Harvard.</p>

<p>she's only 18??!?</p>

<p>Is she taking a leave, or is she there and an RA?</p>

<p>From what I've heard from the news, she is going to edit her book completely and then send it out to be re-published... Maybe that has changed since I've heard that.</p>

<p>On a similar note does anyone know what happened to Blair Hornstein? Did she ever go to college?</p>

<p>the question is: who cares?</p>

<p>there's a thread on this on the parents forum:<a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/showthread.php?t=224556%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/showthread.php?t=224556&lt;/a> </p>

<p>I Had read that she was on leave in a brief mention in the newspaper, but apparently she is at school and a peer advisor!</p>
