OOaamm Posted August 1, 2019 Share Posted August 1, 2019 Hi guys. I am a rising senior and plan to apply for biostats programs. I had a so-called “moderate offense“ in my freshman year, due to incorrectly citing Wikipedia without appropriate references. I have concerns that wether it will harm my admission. So I emailed the dean and he said that since it a “reportable offense,” I should disclose it if a graduate school asks me. But it is usually the case that only law schools and medical schools inquire about academic integrity violations, so I hence will likely not have to disclose the violation should you apply to graduate school. I also ask about this to a PhD student in Psychology, and he told me that he was not been ask any question about academic violence when he did his application. And he thinks it is a small miner even if I would be asked because the mistake came from my first semester, and it is just a moderate offense. Does anyone have experiences or ideas if biostats application will ask about the academic violation? If I disclose it, how harmful would it be to my app?
