The sad part, is that she's prob done more damage to their careers than if she'd done nothing. My experience in engineering [40+ years with a MSEE], is that unless the person interviewing you actually went to your uni, or a relative of his did, he's never heard of it anyway. The possible exception being the various 'state' universities [every state has at least one, most have several]. I have worked for a number of people who had 'liberal arts' degrees, and i have found them to be basically worthless. Of course, my work experience has been in engineering. You cannot expect a history or english major to make engineering decisions, and get even 10% of it right. I worked for a couple of ppl with MBAs [Masters of Business Administration], and found them to be pretty good managers - but both of them refused to make engineering decisions - restricting themselves to business decisions. On those, they did ok.

Cheers.

It almost certainly does - and how would you know about it, unless it 'blew up' like this one?? I'm almost certain that it happens all over the planet - probably more frequently in 'non-western' countries - because cheating and bribery is more tolerated. I base this on my living for nearly 3 years in the near east. In the US, there are a bunch of 'double checks' on awarding degrees that fairly well preclude totally 'swindling' a uni out of a degree.

The sad thing about this case, is that a> the gal probably damaged her daughter's reputation and career for nothing, and b> probably nobody would have cared if she had gone to a different uni. My experience has been that usually the interviewer (on a job interview) has never heard of your uni anyway (unless it's one of the major state unis), or he/she attended it themselves. Cheers.
