8. Lying on College Applications

A: After seeing your college application, I can tell you're really smart and talented.

B: Not really, I'm lying about almost everything.

A: Why?! They're going to find out.

B: No, they're not! They're not going to check.

A: Yes, they will. After a college admits you, they'll ask for your transcript.

B: I didn't know that! How about my extracurriculars?

A: They'll randomly audit 10% of their applicants.

B: What does that mean?

A: The UCs will randomly select 10% of their applicants to provide proof of their extracurriculars.

B: It's only 10%.

A: It's not that little! You may be chosen. Be careful.

B: You're right. It's too risky to lie.
