- Anderson Applicants Plagiarize- Poets and Quants reports that UCLA rejected 52 MBA applicants this year due to plagiarism. UCLA uses Turnitin.com, an anti-plagiarism software that discovers these copied essays. One student was naïve enough to copy a 2003 essay that had been published on BusinessWeek’s website. Anderson hopes that weeding out plagiarists from admissions will help ensure “future business leaders may include fewer unethical careerists.”
