i was caught plagiarizing my english essay. i am extremely disappointed in myself. it won't help when i rationalize and say that it was very late and i wanted to finish the essay. i owned up to the misdemeanor. however, i did get caught once my sophomore for cheating on a quiz. back then, my gc said she would not mention anything about it in her recommendation. I guess i didn't learn anything from that incident, as this apparently happened. my gc said that as this is the second time, she has no choice but to mention this in her recommendation. i was not penalized by suspension or expulsion. but this is an extremely hard blow. she says she still has hope in my applications, but i really just don't know.
please don't bash me about the cheating incidents. i know what i did was wrong. i know it's hard to believe that when I've been caught two times. but, please, can you give me insight in how this will impact admissions?
