In July, there was much chatter about a Craigslist ad from the mother of a student about to enroll at Harvard University.
The ad sought a young woman to have sex with her son, a virgin whom she feared was too shy to learn about women without some secret coaching from Mom. Now there is a new Craigslist ad -- this time from someone who appears to have just been admitted to next year's class. All you have to do is attend all classes, pass all tests, and finish all ased work, while pretending you are me.
You do not need to worry about being accepted, I have already taken care of that. A fake?
Who knows. Inside Higher Ed sent an to the reply address and hasn't heard back.
A Harvard University spokesman said via : "We cannot verify the veracity of an online ad. We regularly take appropriate steps to ensure that only students admitted to Harvard College matriculate.
