absence and requesting Prof. Wu to allow you to take the makeup exam. This
policy will be enforced with no exception. The Dean's Office has a

Academic Integrity -- Please review the Rutgers
Policy on Academic Integrity for Undergraduate and Graduate Students.
As this document makes clear, cheating can take many forms, none of
which are acceptable. Ultimately, cheating in any form will not work in
your favor: you will not learn the material for yourself. This can only
have a deleterious effect on your own future performance prospects in
other classes and in the world at large. Also, if you have any sort of
conscience, you will live with the knowledge that you cheated the rest
of your life. Maybe you will feel that you have "beaten the system" but
you have only degraded yourself. Don't do it!
