    Reports of a large number of students possibly caught up in a cheating scandal over a take-home final exam have recently surfaced.

    The real question is why they would bother given all the grade inflation that goes on anyway.

    Is that from your experiences when you went there?

    Just so you don't forget, Teddy Kennedy was found guilty of cheating twice at Harvard and finally expelled for having someone take a Spanish test for him.

    He must have been a real star on the Swim Team though.

    This story seems to have been brushed under the rug after initial reports.
