I don't think comments on an article can denigrate Columbia as much as the fact that the valedictorian of GS plagiarized. If he plagiarized his valedictorian speech-- to a large audience-- what would stop him from plagiarizing to an audience of just one professor? I think his degree is worth nothing, and I'm wondering if UC Berkeley law school has rescinded their acceptance of him.
I'm not clear why so many people are so hazy on here about what plagiarism is. He passed material off as his own. Corman plagiarized from Patton Oswalt. It's not complicated.
