What you did might be illegal without their permission.  Take a look at the Randal Schwartz situation over 10 years ago:

Not if you want them to employ you.  It's not good practice to probe their network without their permission.  There may 
be a serious lack of trust if you reveal to them that you where doing so without going through proper channels.

Subject: application for an employment

Dear listmembers,

i am seeking for a new job as a Unix/Linux systemadministrator. There has been an advertisement at a well known 
university. So I started to prepare my self for the application. While collecting some information about the network, 
using nmap, dig, etc... I was able to read the whole namespace from the ip range (255.255.0.0)

My question is should I use some of the information I have found out to push my application forward? What do you think 
how a director would react?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
