What is a Letter of Reprimand?


I just had a discussion with my adviser and the dean about a plagiarism case, which I took full responsibility and apologized for. The dean told me that I’ve dodged a bullet in terms of getting in trouble, and that I will only receive a “Letter of Reprimand” which will go on my file.

What is that letter? How much will it affect my chances in College admissions? Is it only my school’s thing?

Nobody here will know the inner workings of your HS. Talk to your dean and find out what, if anything, will be sent to colleges regarding the plagiarism letter of reprimand.
