  1. yes, i do understand that will be another red flag. I just don't want to let mistakes i've made early on that I have genuinely learned from determine the rest of my future, so if there is a chance I can prove how I have learned from these mistakes I'd like to give it at least a shot. Once again i really appreciate the input and honesty. Thank you.
  2. Thank you so much, this was extremely helpful! Once again I really appreciate the non-judgmental responses.
  3. Yes, i am planning on taking full responsibility and addressing as well as admitting guilty to both instances, however I'm not sure if it would be completely necessary to go into detail about the incidents? It's been a long time since then and i honestly don't even remember the details and don't want to say anything that may not be completely accurate. So what i'm asking is, as long as i'm admitting guilt and explaining that i've learned from it do i have to explain both incidents? Once again i really appreciate the input from everyone, it has been extremely helpful. A lot of the time people enjoy dwelling on other peoples mistakes and giving you a type of life sentence --often they want you to accept this sentence but I refuse to since I know i HAVE grown from my mistakes. So seeing non-judgemental responses is honestly really refreshing. Thank you guys!
  4. Yes, I am planning on being completely honest in my application about my history with academic dishonesty and taking full responsibility for it. I can honestly say I've learned a lesson for life and yes I regret but it has definitely taught me a lesson for life, one i've implemented in the past four years of my undergrad. And yes sorry about the typo! I did mean degree and not diploma, I've now completed a four year degree at UofA. Also, i am planning on taking full responsibility for the misconduct as I've asked above, i'm just not sure if it's necessary to go into detail about the incidents? I honestly don't even remember the details and don't want to say anything that may not be completely accurate. I would appreciate any sort of input, thank you.
  5. Thank you so much for your response! you have no idea how helpful this was. I should have mentioned this in the OP but i am planning on being completely honest and forthcoming about the situation, as i've learned from my past experience dishonesty in any form eventually catches up to you. I'm planning on explaining the situations both times as they happen and admitting guilt. It was a stupid mistake i made when i was young and should have known better but can honestly say I have learned a lesson for life! I have completed my undergrad without even the slightest dishonesty and accomplished a lot since then, which I hope they can take into consideration. My question now is whether it's necessary i go into detail about the incidents? I'm going to take full responsibility for the mistakes and admit I was guilty, but I just don't know if explaining the situations in detail is completely necessary when I'm already accepting fault. (and honestly i don't even remember the details all that well anymore and don't want to say anything that might not be completely accurate.) I would really appreciate your input. thank you!
  6. So..I'll just start from the top. I was enrolled in a 2 year diploma at NAIT (Technical institute) my first semester there I was found guilty of academic misconduct, basically submitted the same assignment as another student (not trying to deny I was guilty) in my last semester of the 2 year diploma I was found guilty for the same thing. The first time I just got a letter on my file and an F on the assignment but the second time I was suspended from the institution for a year and received all F's for that semester on my transcript. This happen in 2014. After that year I enrolled at UofA in a sociology diploma and worked really hard to get a 3.8 (in my last 2 yrs) my cgpa is around 3.2 and an lsat score of 166. I have really good extracurriculars/volunteer experience in the community as well as references -I'm wanting to apply to the university of calgary and university of alberta faculty of law. I know in most law school apps it asks you about your history with academic dishonesty and i guess what i'm asking is all things considered do i have even the slightest chance? PS guys i'm asking for honest advice PLEASE don't make me feel bad i feel really shitty about what i've done and can honestly say i'm a different person since then and have worked really hard in my undergrad. I've overcome a lot of hardships and personal situations these past few years that have also contributed to that growth (gave birth to my son in my fourth year while attending full time classes and have learned a lot about responsibility!)
