Thanks for sharing your advice, Omari and Scott.

This is a question that I've been worrying over for months, if not more...but I'd like to know if having a dishonest undergraduate record is an automatic ding for top b-schools?

In my last year of college (3 yrs ago) I was found guilty of plagiarism, though very much unintentional. And while it's not noted on the transcript, the top schools' (HSW) do ask in their application form whether I'd been suspended/expelled/disciplined, so i must be honest.

I feel pretty hopeless. Everything else (Gmat, Gpa, work experience, recommendations) I'm very confident about, but it is still this one mistake haunting me and I know how horrible plagiarism sounds. Adcom probably won't even finish looking at my app when they see this.

I am aiming for the top top (H, S, W, Kellogg) and would like feedback on whether I even stand a chance...and if so, how you advise I should go about it.
Thanks in advance.

Yes, you still have a shot. My bes advice is to be as honest about it as possible. Take responsibility for your actions, and show how you've ensured that it won't happen again. You can either use the optional section or the failure essay that's pretty much a mainstay these days.

Schools want to give you a second chance -- they just want to make sure that you're worthy of it.
