someone to write his essay. Should you still turn him in? Why or why not?

If you do decide to turn him in, whom should you tell? Your Scoutmaster? Your principal? The Princeton admissions office? Why did you pick that person or entity?

If you decide not to turn him in, are you being complicit in his cheating?

How much help could you give Bronson without it being cheating? Would it be OK to brainstorm ideas with him? To edit his rough draft? Would it make any difference whether he paid you for that help?

For Bronson, the Princeton Hopeful Let’s assume you haven’t cheated since seventh grade. Does that make having Josh write your essay less ethical, more ethical or neither? Why?

Would it be less ethical, more ethical or neither if you had asked him to write a term paper for your senior English class instead of college admission? Why?

Does cheating in high school or on your college essay really matter once you get to college? Or do you start with a clean slate as a freshman? Why or why not?

Given how selective Ivy League schools are, you might assume that other appli- cants are also cheating. Should that make a difference in whether you pay Josh to write your essay? Why or why not?

Should the fact that the essay is about values matter? Why or why not?

Should the fact that you’re a Scout matter? Why or why not?

Should the fact that Josh is a Scout matter? Why or why not?

Next Steps Challenge your Scouts or Venturers to devise a solution to this dilemma that doesn’t involve cheating but still gives Bronson a decent chance of getting in to Princeton. Invite them to reflect on times when they’ve faced a situa- tion similar to Bronson’s or Josh’s. ¿
