Business School Ethics



I have some free advice for the students rejected by business schools because they exploited a glitch in the system that gave them a sneak peak at the acceptance/rejection records.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO FIGHT THIS READ UP ON RICHARD NIXON.

While at Duke law school, where he was near the top of his class, Nixon famously broke into the dean's office to find out how he had scored that semester.

Duke hasn't yet decided if it is going to follow the lead of Harvard, MIT and Carnegie Mellon and reject outright the students who broke into the school records.

Duke applicants can say they were simply following the example of Duke's most famous alum.

Then again: Nixon was also Duke's most notorious alum.

Tough call. Might be helpful. Might not.
