    This sounds strange.

    Maybe you want to say

    I wish to verify whether (or not) a student has a degree from the law institute of DVGU. Is this possible? If so, who should I talk to?
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Johnroman, who are you talking to? I would recommend contacting (if you are referring to a Moscow institution) the old curmudgeon at oldmanfriday.com and paying him actual money to find the answer to your query.

    But if you're talking about Far East State University, I don't know, maybe the curmodgeon might be able to find that out too.

    This is a language site, not a detective agency. I sure as hell can't tell you the real truth.

    Here is my attempt.

    Я хотел бы проверить, действительно ли у студента есть степень
    от законного института DVGU. Действительно ли так возможен?
    Если так, с кем я должен говорить?

    Я хотел бы проверить, имеет ли студент диплом юридического института ДВГУ. Возможно ли это? Если возможно, к кому мне следует обратиться?

    Kwatts. i didnt see anything wrong at all with his orginal post. Sure lacking some capitalization and or punctionation but it seems like he was in a hurry. His english was perfectly fine and natural. Why did you correct it?

    I read the sentence many times, and it just seems awkward to me.
    The sentence appears to be gramatically correct, but stylistically the "if" does not seem to fit.

    If I wish to verify whether a student has a degree from the law institute of DVGU, is it possible ?

    or more simply

    If I wish to do something, is it possible?

    ugh!

    I think it is better to say:
    I wish to do something. Is it possible?
