help me someone plesae..i am screwed for life
« on: May 20, 2004, 12:32:22 AM »
hey...i am screwed for life...

i go to a UC and i got caught plagiarising on my english essay because i used my friends rough draft instead of my own, but the thing is its only the rough draft and the final draft is COMPLETELY different and in my own words, but still the proff turned it in to the board members and i got an automatic F for the class...

This is my first time and i am f*$#&@ cause i had my whole mind set in going to medical school...i studied extremely hard my whole freshman and soph year and maintaned a GPA of 3.8...and now cause of that one  class, it would effect my gpa tremendously, and not to mention the added bonus of plagiarism getting put into my permanent profile would defniately eliminate my chances of going to a med school no matter how high my gpa or how high my mcats are.....i am clueless right now..

how big is it if u plagiarise a rough draft??

im going to talk to them tomrorrow and i need to know whawt to say..thanks

I'm also from a UC. UCs hate lawyers and lawsuits, perhaps a lawyer will help limit the damage done, and prevent them from adding this to your permanent recode. Don't worry about your GPA, you can make up 12units and not have it contribute to your overall GPA.
