How Do You Feel About Going to Graduate School With Someone Convicted of a Crime?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I wonder how people feel about going to graduate school with a peer or peers who have been convicted of a crime? I haven't fully formulated an opinion, but just curious what others think.

I will say that:

1. In one of my graduate programs, there was story (no one ever confirmed it) that there was once a student who was recently released from prison after committing white collar crime and graduated with a previous class. The general consensus was that they were glad the person got a 2nd chance in life after doing time.

2. In another of my graduate programs, one of my peers openly acknowledged and arguably bragged about having been convicted of Federal violation. Since this was a policy program, I was rather concerned if this was propagating bad ethics among our program. In all fairness to the program, my peer claimed claimed that no disclosure was made during the graduate school application.
