C&F - How bad is this?

Postby Future Ex-Engineer » Thu Dec 08, 2016 3:27 pm

Basically I have on my record from undergrad a single violation of the student code of conduct for being in the football stadium one evening (I believe the code of conduct infraction was labeled "trespassing/unauthorized entry").

I appealed the 'violation' back in undergrad since I literally walked in through an open gate and complied exactly with the campus officer that saw me and told me I wasn't allowed to be in the stadium. I was pretty confused since I had done this on numerous previous occasions (when the gates to the stadium were open) and had no problems with anyone. The violation was upheld due to a newly implemented university policy that I was unaware of.

I disclosed this and gave my take on the situation in my C&F addendum. Is this whole thing enough to be a small blemish on my application, or am I worrying about nothing?

People get into law schools with far worse C&F issues than a simple trespassing violation. As long as you hold yourself responsible in the explanation, you'll be fine.
