Really? If I ever walked in on my friend roofie-raping a girl, my first action would be to call the police and I wouldn't think twice about it.


If that's your first reaction to seeing a rape in progress, that says a lot about you. You're a terrible person.

We had studied together in the morning and just decided to take it together at her dining room table with a "Chinese wall" type of set up, so we wouldn't be colluding.

Test turn-in time comes around and the system to turn it in goes down. I freak, e-mail mine to the professor's secretary and e-mail student affairs. She has only done 2 of the 4 questions so she continues to type without attempting to turn it in at all. 30 minutes later the Dean sends an e-mail to the class about the problems submitting and says to submit it to the secretary. 45 minutes after that my friend turns in her paper, having managed to complete the last 2 questions.

The end of the day the Professor sends an e-mail saying that all the papers were considered "timely" turned in. I honestly don't know how this can be. The friend has no medical reason, no extra time allowed.

Do you think you would have an ethical obligation to say something, or is it just one of those things you should just let go?

What would you do?

I'm a bit surprised by the moral code represented in this thread.
Cheating is inherently bad, not at all funny, and always wrong.
Snitching is not inherently wrong, and is only wrong when done for a wrongful purpose. I don't think that protecting your grades is a wrongful purpose.

It's your FRIEND. God, stop being such gunnerish douchebags.



ina time of need you need a friend indeed..

besides that, if you were to turn her in, you open yourself up to claims of academic dishonesty. How did you know that yoru friend onloy did 2/4 questions? you were working on it together at her house. While you werent working on it together, you were in the same building, and talked about the exam. is that possible ramifications worth it?? take your grade and pout on your big kid pants
