MIT Admissions Dean gets booted

The book Less Stress, More Success: A New Approach to Guiding Your Teen Through College Admissions and Beyond gets rave reviews, except for this one:
The co-author of this book, Marilee Jones, was recently forced to resign from her position as Dean of Admissions at MIT when information supplied to MIT revealed that she lied when she applied for a job there, and subsequently. Jones had claimed to have degrees from Albany Medical College, Union College and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. In fact, she had no degrees from any of those places, or anywhere else, M.I.T. officials said.

No wonder Jones recommends not stressing out about being admitted to college. Follow her example and just lie about it.
You would think that MIT would have checked at least once in the 28 years she worked there.
