The thread on misrepresentation on AMCAS is interesting and has provoked many responses. Most people including myself feel misrepresentation is unethical. However, consider this scenario, as I know a few people at Brown. Brown University, an Ivy League university, allows students to drop classes days before the end of the semester with no penalty and no record of having attempted the class. The University also permits students to fail courses without penalty. How do you feel about Brown University, which allows students to fail classes without being recorded on the transcript? If you fail a class at Brown, the class is not recorded. In fact, there is no evidence the student even took the class. Do you think this is unethical of Brown? Students at Brown could effectively take orgo a couple of times, failing each time and then finally achieve that grade of A. Only of course the A would be recorded and it would only show that the student took the class once. Even if someone found out the student took orgo multiple times, how would this affect the student, since it wasn't the student's fault that Brown didn't release the previous failing grades? In other words, the student sent her transcript from Brown to AMCAS, but Brown was the one doing the concealing. Law2Doc: In a court case: who would be responsible for concealing? Brown or the student?
