Institutional Action Question
Hello, I messed up, and I'm not sure if what happened can be regarded as institutional action or not. I'm a sophomore so I just wanted to weigh my chances and see if I should just drop out of pre med this early in the game if my medical career is already over from this incident. A case was sent up to the Judicial Affairs office though. Are there any adcoms that I can PM regarding this situation? I've been agonizing over this issue for months. Thank you.
