disciplinary probabtion during undergard - 12 years ago [#permalink]
04 Jul 2007, 00:30
So I've been tooling around some online application questions and at least a few of them ask if I was ever put on disciplinary probation during my undergrad.
Unfortunately, the answer is yes. 12 years ago I had a heated quarrel with a fellow student and we ended up getting in trouble over it. It was stupid and immature but I was 18 and stupid and immature.
I'm wondering if:
1) This kind of thing shows up on a transcript. If so, in what detail?
2) I will mention it in my application but if I didn't would they be the wiser? I ask as application boards seem to have knowledge bordering on omniscience when it comes to this kind of thing.
No one's replied, so I thought I would take a swing at it.
I don't *think* that the probation would show up your transcript -- it wasn't academic. But the best way to find out is to get a hold of yours and check it out. You'll need it anyway; better not to be scrambling at the last minute.
If it's not on your transcript and it's not directly asked about on the application, I wouldn't want to mention it. You volunteer your faults only when requested. I do remember something about a campus safety question, but those might have related to felonies, not to shenanigans in the cafeteria.
I would be extremely surprised if something like that is noted on your undergrad transcript. Additionally, I would only worry about mentioning it if your undergrad college and potential MBA school are at the same university.
