C&F issue?

Postby Thatsmymiddlename » Mon Jun 05, 2017 10:32 pm

I apologize if this is not the appropriate forum, but I had to ask someone.

Three years ago in college, I got enormously drunk one night and was written up for being too noisy while drunk. I was 21 at the time, so the fact that I was intoxicated wasn't a problem. However, I did get a residence probation for violation of alcohol, conduct and noise policies.

It was a stupid thing to do and I take full responsibility. After the incident I've stayed away from binge drinking, and I barely drink anymore. Still, I am worried if this incident will raise any red flags in the admission process. Am I panicking for no reason? Will an addendum about the incident be good enough to put this probation behind my back?

Thanks.

Yes. Different schools require different disclosures, and same with state bars. When in doubt, disclose - this is so incredibly minor it won't affect anything.

Thanks a lot for clearing that up. It makes me feel much better.
