Dean's Certification Question

Postby instantwonton » Sun Sep 04, 2011 6:00 pm

Hi! I have a question about Dean's Certifications. When I was in college, I was at a party that got busted for drinking. I was underage at the party, so I got written up even though I was not caught drinking. I was never actually disciplined, but I did receive a formal warning letter. Is this something that I would have to indicate to the schools that I am applying to? It seems so trivial that it wouldn't be necessary, but if it is something that they would want me to come forward with, I wouldn't want to get docked for withholding it. Thanks in advance for your help!

If a disclosure question could in any way be interpreted to cover your situation (I can see a formal warning being viewed as discipline), then disclose it.

Schools won't care if you include it. If you don't, and they see it on a Dean's Cert., they will.
