Disciplinary Action

Postby foudre » Thu Feb 19, 2015 11:40 pm

In sophomore year I received an F on a paper for plagiarism (failure to cite three sentences I was quoting) and this academic misconduct is on record. I did not receive an F for the class and exited the class with a B.
Will this hurt my application greatly?
And, if anyone knows, who can see this on my record? Will future recommenders (who are professors) see this? Will this be on my transcripts?
I'm just sad that I made such a stupid decision and afraid it will affect me forever.

disclose, show remorse, and you'll be fine. I've read that if there are a few things the C&F committee take seriously this is one of them...

How does one show adequate remorse? Because I certainly feel it to my bones.

Be candid now and show remorse later when you have to explain what happened
