Or maybe the BF asked her to do his roommate so he could tape it and she refused.
We could do this all day, but at the end its all our own conjecture, so I see the most likely scenario, and you see a vaguely possible alternate.

The letter said that "she pines for the boy as it was her fault for the breakup." It didn't say she cheated on him. Maybe she did and regrets it, or maybe they just had a huge fight over stupid stuff and she lost it and broke up with him.

I agree they broke up over some stupid fight, but why is the woman always vindicated and the man is always to blame with you?

In the eight years it took to attain my associates degree, I had about half a dozen girlfriends. I broke up with them, they broke up with me, I couldn't tell you the reason any one of them ended.

This was her first boyfriend, this was probably his eighth girlfriend. We can argue about WHY he dumped her until the cows come to roost.

But here's likely why they broke up: THEY'RE COLLEGE STUDENTS, that's why!

You two are looking too much into this thing.

If she is old enough to be a grad student she is at least 22 ad she is old enough to take responsibility for her own life decisions without mommy and daddy enfolding her. It doesn't matter if she put on 50 lbs ( a possibility equal to Race's suggestion that she turned slutty) or if he decided he didn't want to hand out with the chemistry grad student crowd.
They are autonomous people. LW makes her sound like a little girl. She is not.

L2Yes therapy works. Yes therapy can help break bad behavior chains. No one likes an arrogant know it all who trumpets that all of them are having bad family drama but she is smart because she changed.
