Apparently an 18-year old Asian American woman was found posing as a Stanford freshman for, uh, the entire school year. Wow. From SFGate.com:

University officials refused to identify the young woman while police investigate her unauthorized stay, but students identified her as Azia Kim, who graduated from Troy High School in Fullerton last year. Kim was asked to leave the campus on Monday and could not be reached for comment Thursday. Why the young woman chose to pose as a Stanford freshman is unclear, university spokeswoman Kate Chesley said. Several students suggested it was because of intense pressure to gain
admittance to one of the country’s most elite universities. “She was perpetuating a lie that she had been attending the university,” Wacker said. “I think she had told her parents, and she perpetuated the lie so far that she actually had to come to the campus to stay here.”
