Recently there was a cheating scandal in the news dealing with the GMAT (the SATs for Business School). A writer at BusinessWeek got a hold of me to get my opinion as a current top tier business school student.
We talked about it for 10-15 minutes (IMHO, let the cheaters pay) which resulted in a few lines in the story . To clarify, while I understand the pressure to cheat I:
1) Don't condone it
2) Don't think it would help
3) Think think they should revoke the scores (and ban them from taking the test again) anyone who posted questions (and kick them out of school)
4) Think they should revoke the scores of anyone trolling the boards for live questions. (Although perhaps they should let them take the test again).
Luckily, my parents have always been supportive of whatever I wanted to do and were happy when I wanted to get a MSBA from San Diego State University. While this is very reputable program that some of my friends have gone through (and my undergrad alma mater), but not a top tier MBA program.
