To ask questions? To seek others' opinions? You might think all my classmates are dumb and that's great. I sure hope the majority of future lawyers don't have an attitude like yours. Many bar applicants struggle with what to disclose/what not to disclose. Especially when failure to disclose is considered lack of candor. And especially when lack of candor can result in denial of admission. I'm glad you're so far above everyone else to have figured it out and you don't have to seek legal advice, post on a forum or consult the Lawyer Assistance Program! So happy for you!
You're not seeking the opinions of others in this forum. You're seeking comfirmation that you're correct.
Actually - My original stance was not to disclose. There was a shadow of doubt casted and I was seeking others' opinions. I was asking follow up questions. I might have played a little devil's advocate, but I don't think I ever said I believe applicants should disclose incidents with police. I said other classmates did, the LAP, and the dean. In fact, several times I said I didn't believe it was necessary to disclose.
I apologize for wasting so much of your time. I was just asking for opinions on a subject that causes tremendous stress for some bar applicants. I'm so pleased that the majority of this forum is not worried about it. What does trouble me is the how the majority of the forum treats a concerned law student/bar applicant. I hope you don't treat your clients or colleagues that way.
