Want to go to Harvard University? Here's your chance, assuming you're a white male and have the grades.

A Craigslist job posting earlier this week sought a candidate to attend the Ivy League school who would pose as the poster. The position paid $40,000 per year, with a $10,000 bonus upon graduation.

The posting has since been deleted, according to Forbes magazine. But the "hire" was required to "attend all classes, pass all tests, and finish all assigned work, while pretending you are me," beginning in August 2014. The poster was only accepting male applicants, since the employer has a male name, and required a 4.0 or higher high school GPA or a 3.5 or higher college GPA to be considered.

The signing of a non-disclosure agreement was also required.

"You do not need to worry about being accepted, I have already taken care of that," the post read.

Craigslist, which began in 1995, has long been home to bizarre, and at times illegal, offerings. This year alone, there were two cases of babies being put up for sale, including a New York man who did so because the 2-month-old child's mother wasn't paying him enough attention.
