Your Cheatin' Hearts

Because of its mostly asinine content, I rarely (a) read or (b) believe anything that is posted at AutoAdmit.com, but recent (anonymous and who-knows-how true) accusations of cheating among this year's 1Ls concerns me.

I don't know how much I believe the OP. He has the classic markings of an attention whore (and yes, it takes one to know one and all that), by making vague accusations and never providing any details. And yet, he's OMG!outraged that the administration isn't doing anything about it!!!11ONE My gut tells me that he really doesn't know anything about anything, that maybe the administration was looking into something, and when he didn't see the conclusion, he wanted to effectively ensure UT's integrity by... posting vague comments on an asinine and anonymous discussion board. Our honor codes says that, "[a] student who knows of unethical behavior of another student is under an obligation to take the steps necessary to expose this behavior," and by golly he's going to expose that unethical behavior by keeping the details to himself and dropping hints on a message board that no administrator is ever going to read.

And his excuse for no details? "I don't want to screw up any future punishment by releasing all details I know now. I don't know if that may or may not affect it, but I'd rather be cautious so the fuckers can eat a dick." Right. Because some asshat on a message board is going to make the Powers That Be say, "You know, cheating is unacceptable and could lead to expulsion, but since someone released all the details on the internets, we're going to let you stay at school. Have a good year, and thanks for stopping by." I call a BS/AW combo, but I'm willing to entertain evidence to the contrary.

So inquiring minds want to know: were there 1Ls cheating? Has it been properly reported? Anyone know how they were cheating or what's going to be done? Anyone know why they were cheating? It seems to me that a B in Crim Law would be better than risking my entire legal education and career, but I learned to accept my mediocrity sometime during my first semester.

ADDENDUM: Sent from a reader, who is just repeating what he's heard, so this isn't exactly verifiable. Take with several grains of salt, perhaps?

A group of 1Ls in a different section from his were apparently taking "excessive bathroom breaks" during a closed book exam and it's believed that they were leaving the test room to look at their notes and/or discuss the exam. Because he's not in their section, he can't confirm (this is just what he heard), but he did say that he'd heard about it before I posted this entry.

*anxiously wrings hands* I can't help but hope that it turns out that they were just leaving the exam room because they were sick, which may be naive (but I did leave my Civ Pro exam several times to be sick... of course, it was open book/outline...). I just can't understand the need to cheat, and if they did indeed do it, then I'm really disappointed (as I'm sure that's their biggest worry right now--what I think of them). Also, an Anonymouse says that the Powers That Be are investigating. In the meantime, I'd prefer if no one named names here, because I'd hate to have contributed to allegations of cheating towards specific people if it turns out not to be true. That would suck. Comments are temporarily screened, just in case (but of course I'll approve anything that doesn't name names).

So... apparently the OP on AutoAdmit is not BSing. But he's still an attention whore. *nods*

Sack up, people, you're going to be a lawyer. All of us will be legally obligated to expose unethical behavior as professionals. So, it's time for the anonymous posters to grow some balls.

As for the alleged cheaters--you shouldn't be in law school if you don't want to follow the rules. If anyone actually cheated they should be expelled, and I'm sure UT will treat this seriously.

Hate to admit it, but, as the Honor Code says, we are all harmed by unethical behavior.

One question, though, what is the AW in the "BS/AW" combo?

Since no one has been forthcoming w/info - I'm calling complete BS by the OP in autoadmit. More senseless Texas bashing. If he has information otherwise, he should bring in forward or keep quiet.
May. 12th, 2006 02:35 am (UTC)
It's not BS. The post on auto-admit was stupid and pointless and the kid should have either told all he knows or not say anything at all, but it IS being investigated.

Yeah I definitely went to the bathroom 4 times during my torts finals last year. Its not because people are cheating! Its because of the 3 cups of coffee they drank during the 2 hours before the exam, and the water to counteract the dehydration! People need to chill out, there's no good way to cheat on law school exams unless you know where the prof. keeps the questions or something.
May. 12th, 2006 07:53 pm (UTC)
I went to the bathroom at least three times during the four hour BA exam? Does that make me a cheat (seems excessive)? I also had two 24 oz bottles of water and a caffeinated ice tea before the test - so I don't know, close call.

I know you said not to post names but I heard one of the cheaters was Joe Jamail. He and Walter Shapiro apparently were in the bathroom. Cochran caught them.

Re: Names
LATEST NEWS: it was girls in the girls bathroom. fingerprints possible from bar registration. no news on pass/ fail. SAO is investigating.

How likely are you to find out the results of the investigation? I would like to know if this was just all overblown, nervous students pointing fingers or if there was something more substantial going on.
May. 18th, 2006 10:07 pm (UTC)
pssst, something more substantial going on...

All of us will be legally obligated to expose unethical behavior as professionals.
is that true in TX? I don't think the mrpc obligates you to rat out your fellow attorney. The patent office's ethical rules do, though.

Re: All of us will be legally obligated to expose unethical behavior as professionals.
Yes, the model rules require reporting of violations. 8.3
May. 22nd, 2006 06:26 am (UTC)
so was the cheating just attention whoring?
