        WalMart heiress Paige, a former USC student paid money for
        her term papers and other assignments. She voluntarily
        surrendered her USC college degree after allegations.
        The Walton family could not be reached for comment.
        Oh well, at least she went to school, unlike Paris.
        \_ My high school math teacher went to USC, and paid his way by
           writing papers for the basketball team.
        \_ Paris is too busy starring in her own porn video production.
        \_ Ha this is funny.  So if you have 2 bums and one bum walks into
           a library and guns everyone down, you'd say "Well at least that
           bum has been in a library".  The implication that going to
           school and cheating like crazy is somehow more honorable than not
           going at all is amusing.
           \_ Ostensibly, one goes to college to *learn*.  The degree is only
              a certifcation that you learned something on a particular
              curriculum.  There is no degree for some of the more important
              things one learns in college...
                \_ If someone writes all of your papers for you then the only
                   thing you have learned is how to pay someone to write all
                   of your papers for you.
                   \_ But that's one useful skill for climbing the management
                      \_ Outsourcing ...?
           \_ Haven't you heard of the osmosis theory of learning?
        \_ What about exchanging sexual favors for term papers? Is that
           considered unethical?
                \_ Depends on how hot the term paper receiver is.
        \_ This seems vaguely appropriate:

        Ausman, you enjoying fresh meat?
        \_ I am married these days dude, why do you ask me? Plus, I never
           have had to pay money to get young cuties to date me. -ausman
        \_ Most of the Sugar Babies on the site are not that hot.
           \_ it's Berkeley. Beggars can't be choosers.

5/3     Scott Thompson. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA:
        \_ It doesn't matter if he has a real CS degree or not. The fact
           of the matter is, he didn't go a real college.       -berkeleyan
        \_ In case, like me, you had no idea why this was relevant:

12/20   Question to people in industry: I'm a transfer student, which
        means I can take an extra semester to graduate. I will have met
        all the requirements to graduate in May, but already have an
        internship lined up for the summer and was planning to use the
        semester afterward to take some courses I haven't had a chance

Reuters Wal-Mart heir returns degree amid cheating claims Fri Oct 21,11:24 AM ET LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Wal-Mart heiress Elizabeth Paige Laurie has surre ndered her college degree following allegations that she cheated her way through the school. The University of Southern California said in a statement that Laurie, 23 , "voluntarily has surrendered her degree and returned her diploma to th e university. The statement, dated September 30, said the university had ended its revi ew of the allegations concerning Laurie. Laurie's roommate, Elena Martinez, told a television show last year that she was paid $20,000 to write term papers and complete other assignments for the granddaughter of Wal-Mart co-founder Bud Walton. Following the allegations, the University of Missouri renamed its basketb all arena, which had been paid for in part by a $425 million donation fr om the Lauries and was to have been called "Paige Sports Arena."
