Hello. So, I am a freshman in high school, and was recently caught by my teacher using notes I printed from online in a reading check instead of my own. Obviously this was a really dumb move on my part, I feel really bad about it, and I fully owned up to it and apologized. Other than this incident, I have had no infractions at my school and am maintaining good grades in five honors classes. I'm not sure yet if this (relatively minor?) infraction will show up on my record, but if it does, how will that affect my chances of admission to top colleges? Will they perhaps not treat it as harshly since this occurred my freshman year? I plan to have this never happen again. Do you guys have any thoughts or advice regarding this?
