Apparently it’s not enough that Columbia University freshman allegedly caught cheating get off scot-free, they want the school to [accept their morally questionable grades], too! After the incident, in which students were told what [passages they’d be questioned](http://nypress.com/blogx/display_blog.cfm?bid=43710311) on during the exam, the school decided that their only punishment would be that they must retake the test or accept a final grade based on their other coursework. But it seems the students want their bolstered scores to factor into their GPA, and have started a petition on [facebook.com](http://www.facebook.com/) asking the administration to reconsider. We’re sure if they ask really, really nicely, they’ll get their way.
