Yeah you can. Should you? No.

I recommend you just take what you did, and make it sound as good as possible. For example, I had a summer job scanning old documents. Pretty boring. But when you phrase it that you "maintained and upgraded a digital company archive, while developing a systematic archiving procedure", it actually sounds pretty cool.

Yeah really. Out of respect for everyone who actually puts the time and effort into meaningful activities, don't lie about it. Out of respect for yourself, don't lie about it.

I'm not even a business applicant and this makes me mad.

you can, but, there is a high possibility of you getting caught.
My brother told me that four years ago some guy faked his EC and got caught. The university instantly rejected him and he was banned from applying to that particular university.

So, my advice don't fake your EC because there are many way that you can get caught. It is basically like stealing - you can steal but if you get caught than you are basically screwed.

Realistically, there's barely any chance you'll get caught. The potential benefit from faking EC's is also huge and you should realize that a large number of applicants will either straight out lie or blur the truth. I'm against faking EC's because it robs hard working people of their accomplishments, but the process is pretty easy

Bare in mind, I am totally against faking your ECs, because I spent hard work trying to develop mine, just for this time to come.

However, how exactly would a university catch you besides calling your reference person and them denying it?
