Posting this here b/c student forum and bar exam forum don't allow anon posts.
In college, I got a "warning" (as in I was cited by university safety, but no punishment was taken against me) for sneaking a non-student friend into the student gym (usually costs $5).
On my law school apps, it only said ''have you ever been subject to any sanction, dismissed, or punished by any institution'' and I put ''No.'' Does 'subject to' here mean a warning?
The bar application asks if I was ever sanctioned, or warned, so I put Yes.
My question is: is this an issue? Was my ''No'' on my law school apps justified? Or does it look like I lied? I ask because I honestly thought a warning did not qualify as a 'sanction', even though it was written and placed on my student file. But now that I am filling out my bar app, I realize it may be an issue.

You’ll be fine, but in a lot of states you’ll probably get stuck with a brief meeting/hearing. They hate discrepancies between the bar app and your law school app even if the discrepancies are justified by the language. They also seem to hate it when people justify the discrepancy by referencing the language, which seemed odd to me. In short, don’t stress over this, even if you do get called in for the meeting.
