HowTo: Cheat Your Way Through College

A man going by the pseudonym of Ed Dante has written an illuminating account on his life as a career cheater. His clients include ESL students, hopeless dummies, and spoiled, lazy rich kids: 

"In the past year, I've written roughly 5,000 pages of scholarly literature, most on very tight deadlines. But you won't find my name on a single paper.

HowTo: Cheat Your Way Through CollegeI've written toward a master's degree in cognitive psychology, a Ph.D. in sociology, and a handful of postgraduate credits in international diplomacy. I've worked on bachelor's degrees in hospitality, business administration, and accounting. I've written for courses in history, cinema, labor relations, pharmacology, theology, sports management, maritime security, airline services, sustainability, municipal budgeting, marketing, philosophy, ethics, Eastern religion, postmodern architecture, anthropology, literature, and public administration. I've attended three dozen online universities. I've completed 12 graduate theses of 50 pages or more. All for someone else.

You've never heard of me, but there's a good chance that you've read some of my work. I'm a hired gun, a doctor of everything, an academic mercenary. My customers are your students. I promise you that. Somebody in your classroom uses a service that you can't detect, that you can't defend against, that you may not even know exists."

The up side is this guy must be damn smart by now, like Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting. Read more here.

Ha...I briefly considered this in college but decided the time investment wasn't worth the payout. I think someone else did the math - but if you calculate it, he's getting paid a pittance for a lot of work. I still help friends & family with editing papers though - I love them but does no one teach the basics of grammar/spelling anymore?!

I agree, basic knowledge of grammar and spelling is on the decline.
