Arraignment is set for Tuesday 5-17-2010 for a Harvard senior who faked his records to get into Harvard. He is charged with fraudulently obtaining grants, financial aid and scholarships based on faked student transfers and plagiarized school work.
Adam Wheeler claimed he attended Phillips Academy in Andover and also MIT. He continued the charade until his senior year when some of the research grants he applied for researched him. The Rhodes and Fulbright scholarships were not impressed.
Adam B. Wheeler, 23, is to be tried in the Woburn Superior Court on some 20 charges. He basically dropped out of Harvard rather than attend disciplinary hearings at the school.
