Marilee Jones, a scientist credited with recruiting many women to MIT during her nearly 10 years in the job, had said in that she had she earned degrees from Albany Medical College, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Union College. “MIT was unable to confirm that she has the degrees that she claimed to have,” MIT spokeswoman Patti Richards said. Jones apologized, acknowledging she made an error many years ago. “I misrepresented my academic degrees when I first applied to MIT 28 years ago and did not have the courage to correct my resume when I applied for my current job or at any time since,” Jones said in a brief statement. She first worked as an administrative assistant at the school and steadily rose to become dean of admissions. Over the years, Jones has helped decide the academic future of thousands who applied to study at MIT, one of the most academically challenging and prestigious schools in the United States. Jones earned a string of honors, including MIT’s highest award for administrators, and often spoke and published about the stress that students and their parents endure trying to build up their resumes while applying to four-year colleges and universities. MIT said it appointed an interim admissions dean and that its admissions process was not affected by Jones’ resignation. Jones’ resignation is the latest case of academic fraud to hit prominent U.S. universities. Last year a Harvard undergraduate admitted she copied portions of another author’s book into her own. * * * * * * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * * * * * * From website “TRUTH ABOUT DECEPTION“ A Sociopath A sociopath is typically defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. A sociopath is often goal-oriented (i.e., lying is focused—it is done to get one’s way). Sociopaths have little regard or respect for the rights and feelings of others. Sociopaths are often charming and charismatic, but they use their talented social skills in manipulative and self-centered ways. * * * * * * * * * * * *

Professor Wilkins bought a skin-colored bald cap, cut off short pieces of her own hair, and then glued them to the bald cap. Dr. Wilkins then covered it with a red bandana and hat. USF Honors Instructor Dr. Wilkins falsely pretended she shaved her head. She wore this cruel fabrication in front of a cancer patient that recently was bald, that lost all of their own hair to ABVD chemotherapy. It was mental abuse perpetrated by Dr. Wilkins. Professor Wilkins then immorally used the cancer patient in more of her lies, in falsifying her school scholarships, and for college career advancement. Ironically, Dr. Catherine Wilkins teaches classes in Mental Health, one as a popular USF Honors capstone course. Dr. Wilkins also teaches at the Morsani College of Medicine, and Tampa Museum of Art. * * * * * * * * * * * * USF Dr. Catherine Wilkins Cheats, Lies About Going Into Debt Helping Cancer Patient on Scholarship * * * Dr. Wilkins fabricates scholarship, commits adultery, uses an artist cancer patient to advance her college art career. * * * Dr. Wilkins makes fake bald cap, and mentally abuses bald cancer patient. * * * Dr. Wilkins psychologically damages cancer patient, while patient is near death. * * * For her deceit, receives credit and recommendations.

It is unconscionable that Dr. Catherine Wilkins used a person’s struggle with cancer, a life-and-death battle, to promote her college career. If you think a respected person isn’t capable of this, please look again. * There are persons, such as: * * * The sham-story homeless man and couple from GoFundMe (Mark D’Amico, Kate McClure, and Johnny Bobbitt), who for a time the public believed were compassionate saints, and poured money and praise into them. It turned out they invented the whole fake-story for their profit. * * * Jussie Smollett who faked an elaborate plot in an attempt to advance his career, and gain his own sympathy, and profit. Jussie Smollett did this in a fraudulent attempt to become the face of a movement, and be seen as a cultural hero. * * * Many have used “False Rapes” to conceal adultery: An internet search will show a multitude of real-life court examples. * * * A respected and popular professor (David Scott Broxterman) at Polk State College in Lakeland, Florida has been revealed as a fraud after forging documents to fake a doctorate from the University of South Florida (USF). * * * Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Joseph J. Ellis admitted that he lied to his students and others when he said he had been a combat soldier in Vietnam. ”Perpetuated over many years, his lie about himself clearly violates the ethics of our profession and the integrity we expect of all members of our community,” said a statement posted on the college’s website. ”Misleading students is wrong and nothing can excuse it.” * * * Former dean of admissions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Marilee Jones resigned after admitting she fabricated her credentials nearly three decades earlier. * * * Study says Honor students more likely to cheat. A study released by the University of California, Berkeley reports that some Honors students are risking their academic standings by cheating in order to remain competitive candidates for career prospects and admission into graduate schools. Study says between 40 percent and 70 percent of college students admit to cheating. Previously, struggling students were believed to make up the group more likely to commit academic dishonestly. Now, Honors students and others with higher GPAs make up the greater percentage likely to cheat, according to study. * * * The teachers and parents in the bribe college-admissions cheating scandal (Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman, and so many others).
