Marilee Jones quit because she lied on her resume about her doctorate when applying to work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology 28 years ago.
"I misrepresented my academic degrees when I first applied to MIT 28 years ago and did not have the courage to correct my resume when I applied for my current job or at any time since... This is the only public comment I wish to make at this personally difficult time and I hope my privacy will be respected."

What a terrible example to all the applicants to have this lady as the head honcho making important decisions for the students.
"This is a sad and unfortunate event. But the integrity of the institute is our highest priority, and we cannot tolerate this kind of behavior."
This is probably the highest profile case of fake resume use ever! Woah!
