Hi everyone. I'm a senior now and I'm getting ready to apply to colleges. On all of the applications they ask you: "Have you ever been placed on probation or dismissed by a secondary school or university, or incurred serious disciplinary action?" This is important to me because when I was a sophomore I made a HUGE mistake by cheating on a Chem. test, and even worse, I got caught. Should I answer the question truthfully or just lie and see how it works out? If I lie to them there's the posibility that they may find out. If I tell the truth, all of my accomplishments will be looked at differently. Its a lose-lose situation, but which would be better?
