MBA News: Scoretop Scandal Waning?

Since early July, many candidates have been waiting anxiously for news about whether or not they will suffer any consequences for visiting the website, a website which illegally posted copyrighted questions from the GMAT exam. While GMAC, the organization which governs the GMAT, originally issued strong statements about cancelling thousands of GMAT scores, it seems that the scandal is fading as GMAC is tacitly acknowledging that many of those who visited the site were unaware that they were doing anything wrong. In a Q&A session hosted by BusinessWeek, Peg Jobst, Senior Vice President of GMAC, recently clarified the situation, stating that GMAC is now determined to discipline only those who posted questions on the site or those who confirmed that questions posted on the site had appeared on the test. Nonetheless, as the chat session illustrates, many MBA candidates are still concerned about whether they will be implicated and whether or not they should continue with their applications.
