Hmmmm ... the University of California system is rolling out a new twist to the admissions process in that "accomplishments and personal circumstances" (read: sob stories about how poor and miserable your upbringing was) would weigh heavily. Now they're deploying a verification service. As suggested (rather indirectly) by The Cranky Professor, I wonder how to go about monetizing this. Is it just as simple as fabricating a paper trail? No actual counterfeiting involved, just a statement from a few dummy corporations and/or non-profits that yes, little Johnny was quite disenfranchised as a youth? Maybe I should open a branch office there in CA.
