HELP! DD just charged with academic misconduct
11th grade DD was just charged with academic misconduct which will be on her transcript. She made a citing mistake on a 30 page research paper at a very tough private day school, the charge is unintended plagiarism. It is her first offense, her college councilor and principle will write a letter detailing that this incident was isolated and specific to a very tough assignment. DD is besides herself, sobbing. She is high achieving, high scores and grades. Her original college list is UPenn, Vandy, Emory, Tulane, UVA, College of William and Mary and UT Austin. How do you think a charge of unintended plagiarism will change how her application is viewed, she will write a statement of course. She is devastated and has been sobbing for hours? Are there schools that don't consider academic disciplinary charges?507 replies
