Skip to comments.Did Obama really graduate magna cum laude from Harvard?

I see this claim made in numerous articles and blogs, yet I have never seen any concrete proof of this whatsoever or anybody vouching for knowing this first hand who would be in a position to know.
It would seem if proof was available, it could easily be offered. Yet when I ask the leftards to simply show me the proof, all I ever get is "nobody would be saying it if it weren't true." (??????)
Does anybody know of any proof of this?
I believe Obama Sr. did, not 0bozo Jr.
We called it 480 degrees of separation, or something.
No and no.
None of his school records from Occidental College to Columbia and then Harvard have never been made public so the claim cannot be validated. His school records, his medical records his birth records and eveything else that describes this guy which would include Pasport record have either been sealed or not made public.
Magna cum Laude?
More like “Thank the Laude!”
Wouldn’t there have been a commencement program to show whether he graduated from Columbia or Harvard with honors regardless of whether he walked or not?
Just like being a coke/pot head isn't an issue. Frustrating.
He was at Harvard Law School, and did make the law review, which roughly correlates to top 10%, same as magna, so it appears that yes, he did. For whatever that’s worth.
Someone is confusing him with Romney.
There is NOT ONE DOCUMENT or Piece of EVIDENCE of any kind that Obama Ever went to ANY SCHOOL in The United States. All we have is “their Word” Sorry , not good enough for me.
The next time you see it published on a blog you should note the URL of the blog. Then we can get busy making an issue of who made the statement, ask them to prove it and question where they got transcript information when the media can’t.
Obama has never released records from Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard (or even from his High School, for that matter). He was Editor of Harvard Law Review, which is very a prestigious position, but no articles, reviews or comments in the Law Review attributed directly to him have ever been found or released. There was one article on abortion in HLR which is believed to have been written by him.
I question did he ever graduate?
Probably. 90% of Harvard grads graduate with some honors. Boston Globe did a story on it around 2001.
He was voted president of Law review, a honorary title, not Editor, which is predicated on brains and ability.
Obama was a ‘D’ student who received his degree via Affirmative Action.
I tell this to all my democrat friends. When they react I just say, ‘Prove me wrong.’
There’s their trouble.
And never published an article, never clerked, and did not reveived any prestigious job offers upon graduation. So it would seem there were other factors at work that accounted for his appointment to law review.
No and no.
It comes from people assuming - the editor of law review USED TO BE #1 student.
Then they changed it to an elected position, and changed the requirements for editor - to get more “diversity”.
He wasn’t even close to magna cum laude at any school.
