terrence.mclaren3 Posted September 30, 2015 Share Posted September 30, 2015 I am applying to PhD programs in political science, and some ask if I have received disciplinary probation or higher for anything. I am nervous because I received disciplinary probation for a semester for "harassing behavior" in the first 2 weeks of my freshman year because my former roommate trumped up some charges so he could move in with his friend at the dorm. Three weeks later, my probation was extended for drinking (which I was guilty of doing). I have not had a blemish on my record since, have a gpa greater than 3.9, perfect scores in my field, research experience, strong letters of recommendation from senior faculty, strong GRE scores, and internship experience with a foreign government. In fact, I am now on the board that hears cases as well. In light of that, will it still be too big of a blemish on my record to get admitted?
