Eddie is taking English 100W this quarter—the same class that Carlos took two quarters ago. Eddie hasn't been working on the assignment and it's due tomorrow. He asks Carlos if he could "borrow" his old paper.
What would Carlos do?
No way—Carlos wouldn't do this. He spent a lot of time on his paper and he's not about to just hand over all his hard work to someone who hasn't done anything. (Try again)
Carlos might be overreacting if he made an emergency call to the Dean at this point. (Try again)
Right. Carlos wouldn't give Eddie the paper that he worked so hard on. If they got caught, they would probably both get suspended or dismissed—Eddie for plagiarizing, and Carlos for facilitating academic dishonesty. So whether Eddie cheats, or Carlos helps Eddie cheat, they would both get busted.
What would you do?
Interviewer: "If you had written a paper and someone asked if she could borrow it, how would that make you feel and what would you do?"
Student: "For me, I'm a transfer student so I worked my rear end off to get in here… I work so hard and people ask me for my work and it's like, gosh you're at UCLA! You should know… you're gonna have to work and it's just kinda irritating. I usually am just like — leave me alone. I take pride my work and I work really hard."
