Remember the MBA applicants who hacked in to the admissions database for Harvard, Stanford, Duke, and other business schools? Well, the dean of Harvard’s business school has indicated that any applicant who hacked in to find out their application results will be automatically rejected for admission regardless of what would otherwise have been the status of their application.

“This behavior is unethical at best — a serious breach of trust that cannot be countered by rationalization”, said biz school dean Kim Clark. “Any applicant found to have done so will not be admitted to this school.”


And in case the hackers had any hope that they would escape detection, Harvard Business School spokesman Jim Aiser added “We know that 119 applicants hacked into the system — and we know their names.”

By contrast, while Harvard Business School has taken this position, Harvard Law School has a history of knowingly admitting known felons.

Aunty wonders what that says about…something…

  1. “Politically correct hot air” to reject known cheats from your college? Granted, it could be considered a harmless cheat in that the hack itself did not change the rankings of applicants, but would you invite a stranger into your house after he was caught peeking through your windows?

  2. Try my post at this URL for an answer: http://voluntaryxchange.typepad.com/voluntaryxchange/2005/03/personal_ethics.html

  3. Sounds like some politically correct hot air to me. Do we really believe people using computer security which is incapable of keeping the high school kids out will have an accurate list of names? Perhaps 119 applicants named Kim Clark or Jim Aiser will be rejected.
