Some may argue that cheating is a way of life.

I remember almost getting caught cheating on a history quiz with a friend in the seventh grade. I also cheated on a math quiz using a little cheat sheet of formulas – this was sophomore or junior year in high school. I was caught for plagiarizing parts of my history textbook in high school. I was never caught for plagiarizing parts of an essay for AP American History during my senior year in high school.

I drew the line in college though. That’s serious business, right?

When I was in college, I remember this girl who cheated on her entrance exams. I have no idea why she did this, since it meant she was placed in classes that were too hard for her. Why would you want to be in calculus so badly? I think she majored in some type of health profession. A quick Facebook check confirmed that she is indeed a health professional… Shudder.

These guys charged thousands of dollars to take the SATs for high school students. Now, they’re charged with felonies. The thing is, they go to some pretty mediocre schools, including my alma mater, Stony Brook University. I’m not trying to demean or offend anyone who attended these schools, but my point is that while they’re solid schools, you don’t have to be a genius to get in. It really makes you wonder how under qualified those kids were.

It really makes you wonder how far have people gotten in life by cheating. How many of our nation’s leaders have relied on other people to get by? George W. Bush, for sure. Newt Gingrich definitely comes to mind. Side note: Is it just me, or does he look like a creepy leprechaun? His wife freaks me out. She looks like a Stepford wife, except ugly.

  1. i believe in karma and if u cheat ur way thru life, it will always come back to bite u in the arse. lol at mrs. newt. for a second there, i thought she was christie brinkley, lol.

  2. Ahahaha they are one scary lookin’ couple! I definitely cheated on homework all through school. Even in college my roommate and I had a couple classes together and we exchanged homework when we were feeling lazy. But I never ever cheated on tests or on big assignments. Not because I was too moral, I was just too darn scared of getting caught! I’m shocked that people would pay so much money to get into college! It’s a never-ending cycle. They will have to cheat their way all the way through or flunk out. Hopefully they flunk out! An older man at my work always says this…
    “Q: Do you know what they call the man who graduated at the bottom of his class in medical school?
