Harvard admissions 5.21.10

Interesting story about the perfect transfer student at Harvard. Adam Wheeler claims he had a list of articles, books, and spoke a variety of languages. I question some of the people in admissions for failing to detect the fraud and don't see how the charges aren't more serious. Given his track record he should write a book and tell future students how to get past the stringent admission office.
