Traffic citations, how to list on app?

Postby jdpitt » Thu Jan 10, 2013 6:08 pm

I am starting my apps now as I hope to have my final LOR by next week.

When the application has you upload a file for things such as "crime" at Cornell for example what are you suppose to put in the file exactly?

I have several traffic vilolations that were dropped. I am guessing I have to disclose these? Would I just list what they are and when?

Thanks

Never mind I see that it says besides minor traffic violations. I did not see this on the LSAC app but I saw on the PDF form from their website.

I believe sometime in law school we learn that traffic violations are not crimes.

Most C&F for law schools ask you only to disclose misdemeanors and felonies....just read the instructions.

Doubtful, because that would be patently incorrect for several states. In a number of states, minor moving violations are Class C misdemeanors. On some applications, they will need to be disclosed.

Please stop repeating this (and other) misinformation on this site. Post when you actually know something.

See the first part above.
