I can post a link here to a preview of the thesis from UMI ProQuest so that you can evaluate the extent of the plagiarism. What is typically done in these situations? Is a rewrite a valid option even if the majority of the text is not original (essentially the whole thesis would need to be rewritten in order to comply with common academic standards)? Please note that the adviser of the second thesis was the committee member of the first thesis. Also the adviser of the first thesis was the committee member of the second. Do you think the thesis advisers did not know the contents before signing off on a plagiarized thesis?
