HBS Administration Rejects Nosy Applicants

On March 2, it was discovered that 119 applicants to HBS had inappropriately accessed a web site containing confidential admissions decision information. The students gained access by following a detailed set of hacking instructions made available in a Business Week Online chat room. Dean Kim B. Clark pledged to reject theses applicants, calling the prospective students’ actions “unethical at best-a serious breach of trust that cannot be countered by rationalization.” In response, the following question was posed to a group of current HBS students:

Do you agree with the action taken by HBS administration to reject the 119 applicants who hacked into the ApplyYourself HBS admissions
decision site?

Yes:69.8%
No:30.2%

Number of responses:420

Please see Viewpoints for responses from Dean Clark and a rejected prospective student regarding the incident.
