I Can Help People With All Things College, But I’m Not This Good

Sorry, but I can’t help you get a year at Stanford – housing included – for free. Especially if you aren’t a student there. Or weren’t ever accepted. Or maybe didn’t even apply.

Azia Kim was like any other Stanford freshman. She graduated from one of California’s most competitive high schools last June, moved into the dorms during New Student Orientation, talked about upcoming tests and spent her free time with friends.

The only problem is that Azia Kim was never a Stanford student.

Kim, an 18-year-old from Orange County who graduated from Fullerton’s Troy High School, lived in Kimball throughout fall and winter quarter. She lived in Okada, the Asian-American theme dorm, until Monday night, when University staff finally caught onto her ruse.

I can only imagine the backlash Stanford is going to face over the potential for security threats.

Read the whole article from the Stanford Daily, it’ll make your jaw drop. And Frank Abagnale, eat your heart out.

  1. I was doing post-grad research at Stanford 20 years ago. Scary, huh?
