Wrong info in LOCI?

Postby georgia32 » Tue May 29, 2012 1:25 pm

I wrote my LOCI and at the time I thought I had graduated cum laude because I had the asterisks next to my name in the graduation pamphlet, but now I am not so sure. It looks like I might have been .04 under it. Should I e-mail the school correcting my LOCI?

The state bar will get a copy of your app. Might raise some questions if your degree doesn't have latin honors, but your application claimed them.

Frame your graduation pamphlet & hide the degree in a desk drawer.

This is TLS sarcasm for "Don't worry about it"

No that was not sarcasm. I would be legitimately concerned. People care about this stuff. I know someone that had earned the equivalent of Magna, but his/her school called it something different. S/he put down magna on his/her resume and a firm noticed the discrepancy after a callback and dinged him/her for it. And that person actually earned the honor, but just called it something different. Don't mess around with honors in any way.

I've been reading these forums long enough that I can usually see through the bullshit haha. So I did take your advice.
