it doesn't, a harvard extension school diploma is indistinguishable from an attended harvard normally diploma, it's pretty well known in cambridge and boston how this works but not elsewhere so if you want to run this scam be sure to apply outside of boston

I guess that's a good point, my undergrad school had extension campuses too and I imagine their degrees just said "Virginia Tech" and not "Virginia Tech, Virginia Beach extension campus".

Although I'd hope anyone hiring journalists would know that Harvard doesn't have an on-campus journalism program but that's undoubtedly asking for too much.

I have hired a bunch of people with Harvard Extension School degrees, and it's very clear from the transcript that the degree is through the extension school. Which is a good school with good profs and lots of smart people going there, but it's 100% open admission.

I don't know what the diploma looks like, but the transcript is what employers see and it looks very different.

The degrees are named differently, too: regular Harvard undergrad degrees are A.B. or S.B., but the Extension School undergrad degree is Bachelor of Liberal Arts; the Extension School master's degree is Master of Liberal Arts, not A.M. or S.M. or M.Ed or MPH or Master of Tree Science (an actual Harvard degree).

This article is super dickish and bitchy, but I think it captures the general sentiment about Extension School degrees.

My name's ralph and i'm a bad guy. I'm 9 feet tall, i weigh 643 pounds. I'm a wrecker, i wreck things.




His twitter says he's working at Harvard part time, but his linkedin says under education:

Harvard university
Doctor of Philosophy{Ph D). journalism.
2014-2021(expected)

So i think we can drop the whole extension school thing. harvard isn't listed under employment, his only job since 2011 was some temp thing at a library, and he self admittedly had a B average in high school. I would hope Harvard has more stringent entry requirements than devry.

This isn't helldumping either, this is relevant to discussion because his linkedin has buttcoin plastered all over it. Even in the Harvard section.

You have destroyed buttcoin's sterling reputation. What was once a site with a strong enough reputation to be cited by the government in a federal court case is now a laughing stock. At this point you'd be lucky to be referenced by the defense.
