Is this fair?

If they cheat, they're not smart, are they?

I don't know how they could lie about ECs because you need references for those.

Anyways, that's life. The ethical route is not always the best route.

Some people are just more naturally gifted than others. On the plus side, a lot of super smart people end up failing because they are just that; too smart for their own good.

if there are people who cheat and float their way through high school with 90's, I can assure you that they will do terribly in University (unless they're gifted). The hard workers who get 80's tend to get the A's in University. If you're a hard worker, don't worry...justice is eventually served (in this case)!

Not to mention the fact that they will most likely get expelled when they attempt to "cheat and float" their way through university.

Not if you're in IB or similar enriched programs.

Life's unfair.
But it goes on.
Hard work pays off.
When you get to university, they'll be the ones studying for 5 hours a night since they didn't develop the work habits that you did back in high school.
That's when you can laugh at them and be like, "I TOLD YOU SO!"

The "I TOLD YOU SO" part. It's bad enough that they failed; if and when that scenario happens :(.

Well you don't have to word it like that EXACTLY.
What I wrote is just an example.
You can just laugh it off and say it in your head..
Or tell em, "Better luck next time."
My example was for those people out there who are very bitter about subjects like this.

I was only joking lol. No need to take it so seriously (the lack of connotations is what I hate about online media). Ultimately, your talents are what you have. Unless you use them to constructive ends, you'll be unsuccessful regardless of how gifted you are. There are countless examples of people who have shown the truth behind this view.

It's just too bad then. There are tons of people in the workplace that also lie and cheat their way up to higher status and promotions. They get lucky and don't get caught. You just have to deal with those kinds of people in our society.

If it's any consolation, people like that usually have no real friends and end up feeling horrible at the end of the day.

This is in my school, There are some naturally smart people who NEVER do work and still manage to get high 90s somehow, especially in math courses. and yet there are these extremely hard working people who do 5+ hours of homework each night and get 10+% below that.

This is just so unfair. the hardworking people (AT MY SCHOOL) are ethical, never cheat, helpful, geniunly nice people who try their hardest. but the smart people cheat, skip classes, and still do well somehow and get it their first choices. they also lie about extra-curricular activities to get scholarships/acceptances


this is just completely unfair. do you know ppl like this in your school or is it just in my school?




Um that's just the luck of the draw. It's like that at every school and it's never going to change.

If this is true then I'm fuc-ked I get mid-80s and dont do any work, that said I do pay attention in class i just dont really take notes or study. Also I do not cheat. My logic is I always come through, as in I only slack when I can when crap needs to get done, I do it. I'm expecting to have to try my ass off in first year engineering.
