Suspension

How bad is in school suspension? Does it go on record?
And do you think a college will revoke an acceptance because of it?

In school = bad, out of school = very bad. It goes on your record. And yes, colleges do care. Some care more than others, but it just depends. Usually they let you explain the situation, but if it's for something stupid, you better have a really good academic resume to try and combat it.

If you've already been accepted, some colleges will review the acceptance decision, it may or may not get revoked.

I don't think anyone really knows except for those involved... It might even vary from district to district or maybe state to state. I was suspended once and never heard anything about it from anyone afterwards. However, I was in eighth grade when it happened. But think about it. What information goes from your high school to your college? Probably just your transcript. A transcript which is probably just grades and classes and whatever, but you could check to see if the suspension is on there. Also, if you already applied for college, how would they hear about the suspension?

And after a quick google it looks like it's no big deal...

I believe transcripts do have suspensions on them. Towards the end of senior year almost all colleges require a final transcript to see that you've kept your grades consistent and didn't get too lazy after being accepted (most will understand a little senioritis). Mainly, just be open and honest no matter what they ask about it. If your clear with them why you were suspended instead of trying to deny it or not answer the question, they'll probably see that as a sign of good character.

Smart people do stupid things. Stupid people do stupid things too. But if you've already shown them that you're smart enough to attend their college, then hopefully they'll right it off as a bad mistake.
