Hi! I have an IA involving alcohol from four years ago. I'm going to report it on my AMCAS application, of course, but I wanted some advice on specifically how to report it. I emailed my student conduct office to find out exactly how the incident was reported to them, and they send me back a list of formal university conduct code numbers. Do I list all of these and my specific sanctions? Or is it better to just give a general, but not overly detailed, explanation of the incident and use most of the space explaining how I've reflected and grown? I'm leaning toward the second, but I don't want to inadvertently not give all the information.
A general description suffices.
