You say diploma, I say four week continuing education certificate


from the Los Angeles Times:

Trump nominee denies that he was trying to imply he had an Ivy League degree
excerpt:
President Trump's nominee to be a key banking regulator said through a spokesman Monday that he did not misrepresent that he had a degree from Dartmouth College, but simply used the wording on a certificate he earned from a four-week continuing education program held at the school...
...A short biography of Otting put out by the White House said he “is a graduate of the School of Credit and Financial Management at Dartmouth College.” The same wording was listed on a biography for a 2015 speech Otting gave at a conference hosted by the Hope Global Forums and in a 2014 announcement when he was elected as chairman of the California Chamber of Commerce board of directors. Diana Lawrence, Dartmouth’s associate vice president for communications said on Saturday that “Joseph Otting is not a Dartmouth graduate, Dartmouth does not have a school of credit and financial management.”

RE: the 4 week degree "at" Dartmouth: we have hired so many people with similar credentials, earned, I'm afraid not even "at" an institution but probably through their computer or cell phone - GAWD.
