I thought graduate students were smarter than this!? Damn cheats!

This is a Rutgers University study! Respect to durty Jersey. This professor actually specialized in "Student Cheating". Well....you learn something new every day right?

From Reuters ...

The study of 5,300 graduate students in the United States and Canada found that 56 percent of graduate business students admitted to cheating in the past year, with many saying they cheated because they believed it was an accepted practice in business.

Following business students, 54 percent of graduate engineering students admitted to cheating, as did 50 percent of physical science students, 49 percent of medical and health-care students, 45 percent of law students, 43 percent of liberal arts students and 39 percent of social science and humanities students.


So I guess I lie somewhere around the physical science students according to this study. Though my field has more to do with medicine. So 49.5% of us cheat. Well to be honest, I didn't cheat at all last year or this semester. So I guess I am becoming honest now. All this crap about changing scientific data so it fits results is big news and its dangerous for a career. Scares the shit out of me. Plus I am nowhere close to publishing here at Rutgers so I got some time. Anyway another reason I would never cheat is the big way they trashed the Korean scientist. Heard about that?
