Update about criminal charges

Postby sternc » Tue Mar 23, 2010 6:24 pm

So after nearly five months of waiting, I finally settled my DUI today. While some schools seemed to not really care about it, some probably did (i.e. where I was wait-listed). Most of the schools I have been wait-listed at I am not even considering, but there is one I am. I am going to send them an update, and my question is how I should go about it. I would imagine I should just send the details of the sentencing. Is that right? Any ideas?

I'd knock back a few drinks and fire up the old word processor.

If that is the only advice I get, then I guess I will be forced to follow it...

Just keep it short and to the point. The schools want only factual details, not a rambling explanation. You don't want them to spend too much time looking at it, anyway.

You might get more responses if you post on the right board.
