Biggest lie MBA adcom will tell you

I've gone to a lot of mba info sessions and campus visits and have had a chance to talk to senior admissions officers on various topics.  These public events are mostly a dog-and-pony show, designed to give off a certain marketing image to prospective applicants.  I've learned to take their answers with a grain of salt since they are mostly generic statements intended to not offend or scare off potential applicants. 

There is one thing that adcom says that irks me to no end.  Whenever I hear it (and I hear it at every info session) it takes the utmost self-control to not pull off a Joe Wilson and scream "You lie!"
