Updating Character and fitness

Postby john1990 » Sat Dec 14, 2013 4:52 pm

I just realized that my character and fitness disclosure is incomplete on my application for the law school which i plan on attending during the spring semester. Should i update them now or should i wait until after classes start? I am worried that this may lead to a revoked admissions offer or suspension.

This is definitely something you shouldn't ask the administrative office at the law school you'll be attending. They certainly wouldn't be able to tell you better than we would.

Why would you even consider waiting?

He's trying to see how many consecutive bad decisions he can make in the law school admissions process.

I have heard of this being responded to with a suspension for matriculating students. However, I am worried that my offer might be revoked if i notify them sooner. Essentially I am worried about a getting a harsher penalty by notifying sooner. Further, if I transfer will failing to disclose ever make an impact? I am attempting to transfer and will be over disclosing to the other school to avoid mix ups in the future

This is much more likely to be an issue if you don't inform them ASAP. Not that it's guaranteed to be a non-issue now, but it's an almost-guaranteed issue later.

I updated the school and it went well. There was a moment when I thought my offer may be revoked, but the school said the violations on the update were not serious enough to warrant that. Lesson learned - read carefully with Character and fitness questions. they wanted minor traffic violations and parking tickets reported
