innocent question

Postby hjjs22 » Fri Jan 15, 2010 5:01 pm

Not that I would ever do this, but what would happen if someone were to check that they were an URM, either on purpose or by accident, when they really weren't?

Just wondering

I doubt the school will find out but might be trouble on Character and Fitness Review for the bar.

there's been many threads on this already - just use the search button. The consensus reached has been that you'd get your ass handed to you by the bar, and have wasted $150,000

Also, how does one 'accidentally' check the URM box?

Much like free lunches, there are no innocent questions, this one especially. Misrepresentation: a school can revoke your acceptance if you applied under false pretenses, lied about anything, etc. I'm pretty sure it's part of the fine print on most apps. That and you'd be barred by the bar in the future and you'd have another ding to add to the ding bar thread.

If you do this, at first you are only probably fucked. Three years later, you are definitely fucked.

Seems like big mistake/costly accident to me.
