Wal-Mart heiress returns degree to USC
http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2005/10/19...

Wal-Mart heiress Elizabeth Paige Laurie, accused of paying a fellow college student $20,000 to do her homework, has returned her University of Southern California degree, officials said.


The move came nearly a year after Laurie's freshman-year roommate, Elena Martinez, told the ABC newsmagazine "20/20" that she had written term papers and done assignments for the heiress for 3 1/2 years.


"Paige Laurie voluntarily has surrendered her degree and returned her diploma to the university. She is not a graduate of USC," the school said in a statement issued Sept. 30. "This concludes the university's review of the allegations concerning Ms. Laurie."

2. Aren't there, like, final exams that you have to go to in person?

:shrug:

On Edit: As much as this gal is probably worth, what does she need with a fake degree anyway? Not like she NEEDS the credentials to secure work.

If anything, being fabulously wealthy like these folks should allow you to go to school to learn for its own sake, anything your interested in, for your own pleasure, at your own pace. And if you're not motivated to go to school, who cares?
