My younger brother recieved an academic misconduct (along with the rest of his class) for cheating on an after school project accounting for his final grade. Obviously we're devistated, so lets set emotions aside for now. I'm wondering how this will impact his possible admission to any of the service academies. Will an academic misconduct automatically bar him from admissions? Will the level of severity of the a-m play a role? Would you consider it a bad black eye for an application, especially for a boarderline cannadiate?
