Arrest Addendum

Postby Albatross » Mon Oct 25, 2010 11:24 am

When an application says to "provide complete details" should I explain the scenario it occurred under, or simply the charges and the resolutions? I was thinking the former, but any advice would be great. Especially from someone who has had to explain something similar.

I am in the same situation and you are correct they want the entire situation. Some schools want a quick summary of just convictions and the resulting disposition and then others want the details... just have to read carefully and go with your gut on this one.

Tell them what happened. You don't have to write a novel but paint a concise, accurate picture. Don't try and skew it in any way- it could bite you on C&F.
