Hi... I know from just the title you may judge me as a failure or some other sort of foul child, and I know I will not be able to convince you otherwise.
I am a Junior, All A student who takes all AP classes with a relatively high SAT score, lots of extra curricular activities, won in many competitions; however, recently, I was caught cheating in my math test.
The teacher called the principle, I will be in suspension in a few days along with a 0 on the test, and the fact that I cheated will go on my transcript.
I am fully ready to accept the consequences of my actions, but what I want to know is, how much will this affect my chance of going to college? My first goal was to go to Stanford, but that's clearly done for.
How high of a college can i hope to get in?
Also, since this is going on the transcript, would it be a reasonable to write about the cheating incident and what I learned from it on the college essays?
Please....don't be too harsh.. I know this was extremely idiotic of me but please...
