Dear 100 Hour Board,

Hypothetical situation: I failed a class and needed to retake it. If I wrote a really good research paper for that class once before, would it be ethical to use it again.


A: Dear Conflicted,

Short answer: Yes with an if.
Long answer: No with a but.

A: Dear Conflicted,
If you failed the class you should probably revise your paper a little bit. But I say yes. I double up papers all the time, but not for retakes, just cause I haven't had to do that (except for HEPE... stupid PE)

A: Dear conflicted:

No. But you can certainly use the same topic, same research, same structure....
