Is it too late? Am I royally screwed?

Postby hpfl121 » Mon Jun 20, 2011 8:07 pm

For some odd reason, I went back and looked at some of the applications I filed and I noticed an error. On Wisconsin's application there is a question that ask you to disclose all your all criminal, civil and military infractions (everything but parking tickets). Well, I must have read through that section blindly or something because I selected no. However, I do have a couple speeding tickets on my record.

I don't want my careless mistake to be something that ultimately prevents me from taking the bar and becoming an attorney. But is it too late for me to call them and ask that I send an amendment to my application? Especially since I am not going to attending their law school in the fall?

I am kind of spazzing out right now because I don't want all of my hard work to go out the window all because of speeding tickets. So, if there is anybody who has any genuine advice, please, please, please don't hesitate.

You can even amend after you've already enrolled at the school, but I would just amend now to save the headache. They really won't care about a few speeding tickets, but it's a huge pain to amend afterwards and then it becomes a potential C&F issue.

LOL won't be an issue. My sister had a dwi when she was 20. Didn't mention it, they didn't care and is now an attorney.

Well, that's a relief to hear. I won't take my chances, though. I'll go ahead and let them know so I can avoid any potential headaches in the future.
