Disclose speeding tickets??

Postby jsimp » Tue Jan 25, 2011 6:15 pm

Are you supposed to tell law schools about speeding tickets that you got?

I didn't really think about this until after I submitted my applications.

It depends on the wording of what they ask you to disclose.

But when in doubt, disclose.

This.

If they ask you to disclose those sorts of incidents then go ahead and email them with an addendum. Speeding tickets really aren't a big deal and I think only 1 or 2 of my apps actually asked for it.
