SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) It's not clear what point you are at in college or the application process. My recommendation is that you continue to try to get the charge minimized or overturned. If it does stay on your record, then, you'll need to explain it without blaming the professor and by admitting that you realize you made a mistake by not reading the rules (at least). My opinion is that if you are not suspended from school or given an F in the class, this probably wouldn't be a deal-breaker for med schools.
