C&F Issue

Postby karmaman » Sat Jan 05, 2013 3:26 pm

I just remembered that I was suspended in sixth grade for writing,"I'm going to kick your ass" in some kid's year book. It completely slipped my mind until I was reading someones post about an incident from highschool. Is this going to screw me over later, should I contact the law schools and let them know? What is the best way to proceed from here?

If trolling - 120

If serious - do nothing because it absolutely does not matter.

haha i was being completely serious, I already have a DUI which I fully disclosed, so I'm paranoid about any C&F issues since I heard the CA bar is really intense with their C&F research

Just answer the questions honestly. I just filled out my CA C&F app and don't remember a question that would bring up your situation.

For example, they ask about any academic sanctions during college. If you got a noise complaint or a drinking citation don't click yes because those aren't academic.

What kind of financial questions do they ask?

In general or CA specifically?

The C and F questions don't ask about school violations before college.

I don't know about CA specifically, but I believe mine asked if I had ever filed for bankruptcy, and possibly about collection actions. It's been over a year since I filled out the C&F though.

Thanks. I didn't think it'd be anything more than that, except maybe a list of any outstanding debt.

At my old job things got complex (nothing illegal; just structuring) and I was just wondering how tedious it would be and to what extent I'd have to deal with it

We started talking about the bar, because no one case about what happened in 6th grade

Oh I C, so one last time to be clear. Do I have to go back to and email any law schools that I have already submitted apps too, that I looked back and they asked about academic sanctions (suspensions or otherwise) at any school or institution, not just post secondary or college? Thats my question

Feel free to send them a short email asking if they include grade school. I'm willing to bet fictional money that they'll tell you it's not a big deal.

Dingbat,

My recollection was that they ask for bankruptcy stuff as well as student loans that are behind in payment. There might have been more, but I didn't have anything to say in that section so its skipping my mind at the moment.


RE OP's DUI -- I would correct the date just to be accurate. No point in making things confusing over a typo.
