ABA Journal ran an interesting story on the crackdown on cheaters by Syracuse University Law School. The school will now limit law students to one potty visit during an exam: thereby guaranteeing the law students with larger bladders will reign supreme on law school curves.
The law school does allow students with medical reasons to use the restroom more than once: presumably chronic lack of studying will not be accepted as a medical condition.
The law school told students that “During this exam period, we have received a significant number of reports from (first-year) students alleging academic dishonesty.” Limiting bathroom runs was better and more efficient than cavity searches or catheters.
Here is my only question. I have not studied the average number of bathroom visit by cheaters but doesn’t this move simply require cheaters to be a bit more efficient in their potty lifelines?
Obviously, someone is going to have to keep track of the potty visits. I would suggest this system featuring in Cool Hand Luke where inmates call out “taking it off Boss.” One cannot continue to have a failure to communicate.”
