Potential C and F issues. NY bar

Postby nybarcand2017 » Tue Dec 26, 2017 12:31 am

So when I was completing my law school application I put that I had an associates degree from the undergrad school I transferred from. I sent my resume to a friend so he could look it over before I submitted it. He told me that I didn't have an associates degree. I was under the assumption that once you finished two years of undergrad you are automatically awarded an associates degree. He convinced me otherwise. So when I completed my applications I just listed my bachelors degree. However I forgot to take it off my application resume before I submitted with my applications. 2 years pass, I look through my law school application and I notice this mistake/discrepancy. I emailed my law school dean to amend my application and he accepted the amendment and the law school took no action. I am currently applying to the NY bar and I'm really worried that this will be an issue with the committee.

Your law school didn’t take any action, so I don’t see why C & F would. If you’re THAT worried about it, write a letter detailing your OP.

Not an issue. You’re good 8)

Just to reiterate, you're fine.
