Regardless of what might happen, the conventional wisdom is just to disclose immediately. I would go talk to someone in the administration (Dean of Student Affairs or somebody like that), and just explain that you forgot to include these courses when you applied, but will get transcripts for them sent to the school immediately along with anything else they may want you to disclose. My gut tells me it probably shouldn't be a big deal unless you absolutely bombed those courses, in which case it may look like you were trying to hide them to keep your GPA high.

Either way, disclose it to them as soon as you can, explain what happened, offer to give them whatever they need, and hope for the best. There's nothing else you can really do.

(If it makes you feel better though, I think you'll be alright)

I actually think the subject line should be "ACA1 BERRY WEIGHT L0SS MIRACLE!!!!!"

"The spam filter caught my disclosure" is worth a try. For science.

You can amend your law school applications...apparently even after you graduate from law school because sometimes the bar will make people amend them if they didn't disclose something. Go to a dean and tell them you want to amend your application. If you did well in the classes (or at least not so badly that it would've dragged your GPA down), that would support your story that you forgot about them if the bar even gives a "fuk."
