Must I Report a Middle-School Suspension on College Applications?
Question: I was suspended in middle school for involvement in a fight. Will I need to put this on my college applications, and--if so--how will it affect admission decisions?
Typically, college applications focus on your high school career only, so youâ€™re off the hook for any middle school misdeeds. If, however, you encounter a query about past suspensions, and the wording seems to suggest otherwise (or if you simply feel youâ€™ll have a clearer conscience by doing so), you can â€™fess up to your erstwhile infraction with no fear of admission-decision repercussions.
