Law School Application - C&F Question

Postby Yeezus Wept » Sun Feb 18, 2018 11:19 am

Law school applications have a question that generally asks about academic or disciplinary probation, suspension, etc. Does this include being written up for drinking in the dorms? I was under the impression that this question was all about academic dishonesty, major incidents, etc., but the question does ask if the applicant has "been issued academic or disciplinary warnings."

Does this include being written up for drinking or being sent to the hospital for being waste? I did not disclose either of these things, but I don't recall being issued a "disciplinary warning". Is TCR amending my application ASAP?

TCR is that yes, these issues need to be disclosed. I would check with your university to get an official record/report and immediately amend your applications. Make it clear that it wasn't your intention to withhold this information, but that you now realize this was required to be disclosed.

I disclosed my drinking in the dorm citation. When asked to provide further evidence, I asked the dorm for a copy of the citation. Eventually, I got a letter saying that they don't keep records beyond 4 years. It was never an issue after that.

Disclose and be prepared to make a couple annoying phone calls. Beyond that it's not an issue.
