OMG: So I got caught cheating on the last assignment in cs350. Yeaa... I'm such an idiot, should've listened to the warnings.. but I gambled like a fool and took someone's github and changed some variable names... kicking myself so hard right now. I'm totally fucked right? :(

  1. Yup. "gg no re" your undergrad academic career when you get kicked out of your program and can't reapply for two years to ANY school in the province.

    Godspeed, you glorious plagiarizing dumbass you.

    1. I wish that was the penalty. It would have been nice to see this happen to a person I knew who boasted about cheating. Too bad the university kissed their ass instead.

  2. You only get 0% on the assignment and -5% if this is a first offence. It's still possible for you to get the credit.

  3. CS students should realize that their profs can catch them faster and with less effort than any other group of profs, thus probably fake.

    1. I'm also in 350 this term; there was a post after our second assignment stating that a ton of people had been found cheating. I've also been a TA and there were dozens of people copying code. It's sad, because it's so easy to catch, and yet people still think they can get away with it.

  5. Yes and fuck you. You'll probably still pass the course, too.

    Seriously, what made you think this was okay? Yes, plenty of people cheat in that class, but a lot of them get caught. Don't you have ethics?

  6. I say let them cheat. My favorites are the ones who cheat through all of school, and then they get out in the workforce and realize they're unable to do the work because they never really learned how to.

    1. Unfortunately it could have consequences for everyone. Employers start to question the quality of education for that institution and it could have adverse effects to anyone applying in the future.

    2. Yeah, except they still get hired by some clueless recruiter and sit around with their thumbs up their asses, making it harder for you (the person actually acquiring the necessary skills) to get a job.

    3. @6.b very true. I assume you've been through that. I know I have.

  8. This is embarrassing. Especially after the HUGE warning the class got after assignment 2a, in class and on Piazza. You think they don't run tools to compare your code to code across the internet? It's 2015 ffs, those exist you know.
