That sounds like school sanction. Sometimes apps will say academic, sometimes they'll have one for academic and one for social. I think that you should disclose for either. Really this should come off as very formal. State what you did, the consequences, and anything that you did to mitigate the situation. Don't excuse it.

it doesn't look good. don't let people here tell you c&f doesn't matter. It does, as I am finding out (similar type of stuff to you, i.e. young and stupid behavior)

Hope you find more luck than I did.

I would disclose it. Definitely don't use the excuse you used in this thread though. A couple of college-age guys should be responsible enough and mature enough to live in an apartment without punching holes in the walls and cluttering up the place with enough crap to get tossed out. You must accept responsibility and show that you have made strides to correct your behavior. Don't plead ignorance because that will make you look even dumber.

Yeah I'm definitely going to disclose it I'd rather just get it off my chest. It's such a bummer though because not only did I have no idea we were breaking any rules, I was not responsible for like 99% of the damage - like I would come home one night and there would just be a huge mess, etc. We all just ended up getting in equal trouble because "our room, our responsibility" Now I'm starting to worry this will be looked at as a big deal..

Nothing you can do about it now. It's pretty depressing.
