Question on disclosure

Postby Cromartie » Wed Aug 25, 2010 12:32 pm

I'd like to get some feedback on a hypothetical scenario. Consider an applicant who reapplies to a school. On the applicant's first application, he/she failed to disclose information on another law school attended. The law school is in a foreign country and the applicant only attended for 2 days before dropping out. No grades, no academic sanctions, etc. Just plain and simple dropping out.

Would disclosing this information in the reapplication have a significantly negative impact on the application since the law school would still have access to the previous application and would likely note the initial non-disclosure? Would the applicant be better served by still not disclosing the information?

There are no hypotheticals. Only true life experiences. Too detailed to be a hypothetical.

Disclose everything. Nothing difficult about that concept. Disclose it. Not disclosing something, even if it wasnt bad, shows a lack of integrity and schools dont like that.

Good luck!
