The applicant has knowledge of this. The relationship ended on amicable terms.

My questions:

1. Does the applicant have a duty or an obligation to notify anyone at the law school?

2. Is there grounds for any conflict of interest type scenario here?

Thanks,




Whaaa....

Surely this is a flame, but I'll bite. It's the duty of the adcom to notify the committee of the conflict of interest. If she's pissed at you, you're boned.

If it's Illinois, you get to skip over the Dean of Admissions and go right to the top.

Dear Dean ______,

Remember when I banged you? Anyway, now I'm applying to your school. Thought I should let you know. Also, might want to get checked for the clap. Long story. Anyhoo, let me know if there's anything else you need for my app, or if you need anything in general. Wink wink. You know what I mean.

Sincerely,

p.s. Just in case I wasn't clear, I meant if you want to bang.

Define intimate. This example is too ambiguous.

A true test of Karma.

On the other hand, are you certain that this dean will remember the applicant? Kinda presumptuous? I mean, really, it sounds like it was awhile ago. Placing a name on a file with a face from the past can be challenging.

I agree that this storyline has potential... :mrgreen:

If you're really concerned about this, call her up, meet for drinks, ok maybe not that, and tell her what's going on. I don't think she'd like to hear "Hey, we have this applicant who claims to know where your birthmark is. Did you really mess around with this guy, Dean?"
