More Bad PR for Duke

Just caught this article about graduate business students at Duke cheating on a take-home exam. Interestingly, business students are quoted for having the highest percentage of students admit that they have cheated - could either mean they are the most honest about cheating or that you shouldn't trust a business student. Back to the article, it seems kind of silly for students to cheat on a take-home, open-book test, but I guess people try to cut any corners that they can. When I was in undergrad, I recall many instances of blatant plagiarism, whole essays stolen from the Internet, by fellow students, despite strong warnings of failure or expulsion from professors. Sad.
