College admissions are getting more and more competitive as the years go by.
It’s no surprise that the pressure to lie and cheat on college applications has intensified as well.
Imagine applying for an elite school that admits only 4 to 5% of the applicants. You may have the urge to lie or embellish the facts on your college application because you’ve heard that you can get away with lying on your college application. But you also know that there’s always the off chance of that lie being discovered.
But the question is, what are the consequences? Is the penalty simply a revocation of the admission offer? Or can it extend to after you’ve begun the course or even after graduating?
