Academic Misconduct

Postby Reaper718 » Fri Aug 10, 2012 9:06 am

Hello Again,

I have another question regarding the below statement found on most apps.

"Have you ever been placed on academic probation, warned, suspended, dropped, expelled, or been asked or advised or permitted to withdraw for academic reasons from any post-secondary school, college, university, professional school, or law school?"

Does this mean they want to know if I ever served suspension/detention concerning only scholarly stuff like if I cheated ect?

Or

If I was ever suspended/detention for other reasons?

I was served in house suspension once for a lunch table "food" incident during my 2nd year of high school. That was the first and only time I ever got in trouble in H.S; does that need to be disclosed?

Thoughts?

I assume post-secondary means post-high-school.

Lunch room food fights are not academic in nature unless the ammunition included alphabet soup. :D

As presented in your original post, only academic related matters are relevant. Nevertheless, law school application questions differ so some may require reporting your lunch room misconduct.

I am sure law schools do not care about high school matters.
