I got caught looking at someone else's paper during a nursing quiz, and now they're going to dismiss me from the nursing program. I have never done this before, it wasn't planned, it was stupid and immature and not worth it and there's no way in heck I'd ever do that again.
I have a lot of questions. First, is there any way I'll be dropped from more than just the nursing program, such as my Anatomy and Physiology class which I was originally taking as a pre-req for the nursing program? Second, how will this come up when I try to pursue another major? What chances are there that they'll let me stay in the dorm now that I will no longer be a full-time student?
I am also curious as to at what point in your life did you discover that cheating, especially in college, can have such major life consequences? Because I was surprised to learn that I was lucky I didn't get completely kicked out of school. (Maybe this is because I was home schooled. The issue just never occurred to me). At the time I figured the worst that could happen to me is that I would get a 0 on the quiz and a warning. Now I feel as stupid for thinking that as I do for cheating. And am I or am I not thinking too extremely when I think that I have little hope now of ever achieving a college major?
