Law School Admissions / Working under the table
« on: August 27, 2007, 06:44:38 AM »
Assume that someone's GPA is relatively weak owing largely to working a 30+ hour a week job during their first couple of years of college, which they plan to write a brief addendum for.  However, the job this person had was an under the table position.  Actually, for the better part of three years they did not have a "job", at least for tax purposes.

Should someone include this position in their academic resume submitted to law schools? Obviously, the real issue here isn't the schools finding out, it's the bar review committee.  Do you think the committee would dig this much?

EDIT: Please no condescending "They shouldn't be practicing law", rhetoric.  I know that there are plenty of people here that have held under the table positions or have violated copyright laws by downloading movies or what not.

Law School Admissions / URM in the Absence of Hardship

Simple question:

If someone's ancestry is one of URM status (say at least 1/2 Black, Chicano, Hispanic, etc.), but they feel they have faced no real racial hardships because of it, and therefore do not highlight it in neither a personal statement or diversity statement, would the simple identification as such on law school applications garner them special treatment in the application process?
