Employment history error on application

Postby Riverandsteiny » Wed May 30, 2018 9:18 am

I was acceptanced into the law school that I wish to attend. Recently, I learned that when applying for the bar they compare your law school application to the bar. I went back and looked at the employment history section where it said to list ALL employment. I simply did not read carefully and didn’t realize it was all employment. I didn’t list three jobs. One was a coffee shop I worked at for two weeks where I was terminated about a year ago. I simply told them I was quitting and they sent me a notice of termination. I never followed up. Also two summer camp jobs I had during college that I forgot about. Should I contact the school? I don’t want my addmision to be revoked- I had no intention of lying. Is this a big deal?

Unlikely this is a big deal. Yes, contact the school, you can just send a letter explaining what happened and let them know you are providing details of three short-term jobs you omitted.

Thank you! Would it hurt me not to contact them in the long run?

That's not really the question to ask. If you made a mistake, fix it.
