you should always be honest. regardless what people say, eventually they will issue a background check verifying all of the information you put down, and when they figure out your lies, not only will you be expelled, but you will never be able to attend another school. wouldn’t you rather tell the truth and face the consequences right then, rather than sneaking around hoping you never get caught?

as long as you didn’t build a meth lab, you should be fine.
