GMAC Addresses GMAT Cheating Scandal

As they promised when the story first broke, the folks at the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) have just released an FAQ regarding GMAC’s case against Scoretop and what it means for people who have used the site.

While there aren’t any bombshells in the FAQ, GMAC’s position is clear: Anyone who used the site shouldn’t plan on using “But I didn’t know they were real questions!” as an alibi. GMAC will assume that those who paid for Scoretop subscriptions deliberately tried to get their hands on real GMAT questions. At the same time, GMAC made clear that merely visiting the site (and not paying for “JJs“) does not make someone an offender. So, if you just clicked on a link in a forum and merely “checked out” the Scoretop site, you have nothing to worry about.

Interestingly, the FAQ goes on to say that GMAC tracked Scoretop for several years, and repeatedly warned Lei Shi about posting live questions. GMAC eventually filed suit against Scoretop a year ago (in June ’07), and won its suit a year later. The wheels of justice turn slowly, for sure.
