I was suspended from a university for something that I did not do. What happen is that there was a mistake made on my transcript, to be exact, 3 credit hours were not on my transcript from the previous semester. When I tried to get the situation fixed, I was given the run around. By the end of the semester, I was in panic mode because I was going to be transferring to a different university and needed to have my transcript corrected before the transfer. So, I eventually spoke to a lady in the transcript office who said she would take care of this for me. Two months later, I get a letter from the university stating that there was a discrepency on my transcript and that I was being investigated for it. I got a lawyer, but could not afford the lawyer fees throughout the entire investigation (besides, the lawyer sucked). My only choice was either to plead no contest and take the suspension, or get a loan and pay for another lawyer. So, I pleaded no contest. The suspension is not on my academic record and I because it is confidential I must give permission for any school to see these records. What should I do? Should I tell or not? Do dental schools just randomly ask students permission to see these records? It's unfair for this to hinder my acceptance to a school. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
