Hi! I completed my undergraduate in the May of 2019. I’m currently in the process of re-taking my MCAT for later this year. In the Summer of 2019, I was enrolled in summer classes. One of my classmates, who I previously had classes with, asked for help on a writing assignment for a Jazz class. Since I took this class the previous summer, it made sense that she asked for help. I gave her access to my writing assignment, purely thinking she would use it as a reference.
A couple of weeks later, she and I received a notification from the college’s Office of Academic Integrity that her assignment was flagged for plagiarism. I received Academic Dishonesty and was put on Academic Probation for the following semester. I was just wondering how I should approach addressing this situation when it comes to application season and whether I still have a chance to get into medical school. Since then, I have not let this mistake stop me from strengthening my application but I can’t help but feel that I’m still not doing enough/not being realistic. I was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions.
