What now?

Postby mchrop10 » Wed Jan 06, 2010 1:09 pm

So I recently received a traffic violation (turning on a red light when there was a no turn on red sign). Should I just write an addendum to all schools that I've already applied to now? What about ones I've been accepted to already? More importantly, are schools that have yet to make a decision going to heavily weigh this??? :shock:

You might as well knock 5 points off your LSAT.

Seriously. If you can't pay attention to a no turn on red sign, what are your chances at doing well in law school? None.

I'm pretty sure most schools don't care about traffic violations and they don't need to be reported but you might want to check just in case.

Ok, maybe a slight overreaction, lol. In any case, I only ask because Wisconsin specifically asks about traffic violations and they are one of my top choices.

It definitely will not affect your admission decisions. HOWEVER, check all of the applications you have sent out and find the ones that ask specifically for moving violations. I would send a short email to those schools only. Better safe than sorry. I know it is ridiculous, but if the school asks for that kind of information in the first place, you should probably send them a note.
