It seems that some hackers (119 to be exact) who were anxious to find out whether they were accepted or not decided to hack Harvard's system and find out for themselves.
"This behavior is unethical at best -- a serious breach of trust that cannot be countered by rationalization," Kim Clark, dean of Harvard Business School, said in a statement.
"We know that 119 applicants hacked into the system -- and we know their names," said Jim Aisner, a spokesman for Harvard Business School.
Well, I guess that means that Harvard will have more spots open for potential students.
Curious on how they got in? More from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
An unknown hacker posted instructions last week on a BusinessWeek online message board on how to view the status of their applications. Applicants to at least six business schools took advantage of the instructions, although most got only blank screens.
Well, I guess this goes as a lesson to all that hacking has it's set backs. You should try hacking "legally" at sites like these.
