Thanks for the response.

Just curious, would this even need to be reported on your applications anywhere? I am not very familiar with AMCAS apps or school specific apps.

Hi Everyone:

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the ramifications for having a relatively minor school misdemeanor (such as being written up by your RA for drinking) might be.

While fully acknowledging that any sort of behavior is embarrassing and unacceptable, sometimes small thinks like that can really set you on the right path. But, does anyone have any idea what something like this might mean come medical school applications?

Thanks!
This is not a misdemeanor. Med schools will know you had this incident ONLY if it shows up on your record. If you got a badge that said I'm an Alcoholic, and a letter of warning, then it generally would not be on your record, and med schools wouldnt know.

Yeah, its not on my record or anything. I was just wondering if there was a place it "should" be mentioned on typical medical school applications.

No. Never on your record = no need to report.

If it was an institutional action, you need to report. But regardless, if it was only once, it will not be helpa against ou in the med school application process. Three times proves you're not a fast learner, so don't go there.
