Did Deborah Feldman Misrepresent Her Academic Background?


Did Deborah Feldman Misrepresent Her Academic Background?

Deborah Feldman closeupThe author of "Unorthodox" claims to have received a scholarship to study at Sarah Lawrence, and she's said she was admitted without having a high school diploma or a transcript. How much, if anything, of this is true?

Is Deborah Feldman lying about her college education?
Listen to her brief interview (posted below) with Leonard Lopate, which was recorded a few days ago. when you hear it, you'd think Feldman was admitted to a BA program at Sarah Lawrence – without a high school diploma or a transcript! – and was still studying there.
But I'm told that she was admitted to a writing program through the Continuing Education division of Sarah Lawrence. It does not require transcripts or even a high school diploma. (Please see the application posted at the end of this post.)
I'm also told that Feldman has not been a student at Sarah Lawrence since 2010.
It seems Feldman just can't tell the truth.

  1. Seems like your blog is entirely devoted to trashing deborah feldman. It so happens that in her book she makes it quite clear that she was admitted to an adult education program, not a matriculated b.a. program.

  2. You are a dipshit. Find something constructive to do with your time, if you have time on your hands to try and discredit someone like this, rather go volunteer at a soup kitchen. Jealous loser hater

  3. I really liked this part of the article, with a nice and interesting topics have helped a lot of people who do not challenge things people should know.. You need more publicize this so many people who know about it are rare for people to know this... Success for you.....!!!
