I feel comfortable saying you do not have to disclose this incident in responding to this question.

thank you so much! I didn't think I had to but the question read as vague to me so I wanted to make sure. I appreciate it

So I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how to respond to #5 on NYU Law's character and fitness portion of the application because of the wording. The question is as follows:

"Have you ever been subject to academic or any other disciplinary sanctions, or are charges pending at any academic institution? This should include matters that have been expunged or dismissed."

My situation is that in sophomore year, someone impersonated me online and wrote things that might fall under "discriminatory harassment" (the things were about the same racial group that I am a member of so it didn't even make sense) Anyways, my dean called me and told me about it and I proved it was not me and we got twitter to take the page down. I never even had to meet with my dean and was not taken to a conduct trial (or even threatened with one). The entire thing consisted of a phone call of the dean telling me that the page existed and a phone call after we got the page taken down just to check in with me that I was okay and not hurt by the situation. I was never so much as threatened with discipline over it and the dean understood the situation (that I had people pretend to be me online before and use my pictures).

Do I have to disclose this? My issue is that I was never actually subject to anything so is the situation necessary to put under #5?


Yeah, I also agree that you don't have to disclose. Don't worry about it!
