When Harvard found out last October that Adam Wheeler, 23, had conned his way into the school, it expelled him. Then, he decided to apply to Stanford—and got in. Wheeler, who was indicted in May on 20 counts of larceny and identity fraud, among other things, allegedly told Stanford that he had attended the prestigious Phillips Academy prep school and MIT. But when Stanford realized just who he was, the school rescinded its offer for the 2010-2011 academic year. Wheeler had also tried to get into Yale, Brown, and the Williams College Seaport Maritime Studies Program.
