Not all cheating is alike. What was the nature of the transgression?Hey everyone,
I'm seeking advice on my prospects for medical school and especially graduate school (e.g. Masters in Sciences). I'm entering my last year of undergrad in Ontario and have decent prereqs (see below). However in my 3rd year, I made a terrible mistake and a notation reading a grade of F assigned for academic dishonesty was placed on my transcript for a course. This notation sticks for 5 years and the F remains forever. My actions were abominable and I have since been learning from my mistakes and working on myself. Any insight is appreciated if I have any chance for medical school. In addition, my backup plan is to pursue graduate studies. Thus, how will this affect my application to jobs and graduate schools? Do I have any chance of pursuing a Master's? Thank you for your time.
Cumulative GPA: ~3.85 - Significant drop due to F
MCAT: 520 (129 CARS)
ECs: Paid Summer research (with thesis), 200+ hours hospital volunteering, 100+ hours clinical volunteering, 350+ hours general volunteering, paid medical clinic staff, 5 part-time jobs during undergrad (once acting as an exam invigilator), executive member for multiple student-run clubs, intramural sports, etc.)
Thank you for your time.
I'm surmising you must have had close to a 4.0 GPA, if an F only knocks you down to a 3.85.
