Pre-Law Student Accused Of Doctoring Roommate Agreement
UPPER CAMPUS — One of the several checklist items that many Boston College housing residents must complete at the beginning of each semester is the roommate agreement. In the midst of move-in and higher priorities, many students disregard the agreement as a procedural, boilerplate document. However, one pre-law student, Paul Badguy (MCAS ’26), was accused early this week of using the roommate agreement as an opportunity to flex his knowledge of contract law.
Badguy’s roommate, Carl Gill (MCAS ’26), feels that he is a victim of fraudulent misrepresentation and suspects that Badguy is responsible. “Paul and I agreed that we would go to bed, or at least would be quiet enough to let each other go to bed, by 12:15 each night. When we signed the roommate agreement with that agreed upon curfew, he told me he’d hand it in to our RA,” Gill said. “But, last Thursday, Paul was up loudly watching TV until at least one in the morning. When I brought up this issue to our RA, she said that the agreement said 1:15 and not 12:15.”
“I have no idea what he’s talking about,” Badguy said, denying all accusations of malpractice. “I’m just an easy target because I’m a pre-law student with more ambition than the average person. Even if I did know something, I wouldn’t tell The New England Classic. I’d go to a real paper on campus like [redacted]. Did I mention that I’m double-majoring in political science and economics with a minor in communication?”
“I know he doctored those numbers,” Gill said. “It was 12:15 on that paper, just like Magna Carta. As if I could make such a mistake.”
At press time, Badguy was seen at the UPS Store across the street, slipping the copy station attendant $20.
