My first semester freshman year (this past fall), I was placed on disciplinary probation, and then had a serious alcohol violation following that. I was suspended for the rest of the semester. I appealed the suspension, was able to finish the fall semester and was reinstated for the Spring semester following the completion of alcohol counseling over break.
I went back this semester, and had a new roommate. I was still drinking and smoking a little bit, but being responsible about doing it. My roommate reported me for being drunk and smoking weed, which they were able to prove based my roommate and his friend's admission of seeing me possess paraphernalia.
I was suspended for the remainder of this spring semester, and the fall. Upon completion of more alcohol/drug counseling I can return in the Fall.
Is this something that will permanently damage my resume? Will another school take me?
I do attend one of the top 10 undergrad business programs in the country.
