The Latest UMDNJ Scandal

A new cheating scandal has hit the state's dental school, this time involving an elaborate scheme by students to secretly memorize test questions and distribute the answers.

At least four students at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey are facing dismissal and four others could be suspended for the remainder of the year or receive letters of reprimand, a school official said.

It is the second major cheating incident at UMDNJ's New Jersey Dental School in less than a year. Nearly a quarter of last year's graduating class was forced to perform up to a year of community service, and one student was denied a diploma, after the students were caught trading credits for clinical procedures they never performed.
The students take after the administrators, who are just as likely to be double dipping or engaging in no-show jobs or other corrupt and criminal acts as they are to be giving proper instruction.
