General Board / Why can't I find a job?
« on: March 04, 2008, 11:47:10 AM »
Graduated from a bottom top tier school.  Top 10%, multiple book/cali awards, worked at law firm througout 2L; judicial extern at state appellate court.  Not law review.  Moved out of my school's state and region for Chicago.  Now I can't get anyone to reply to applications.  Any suggestions besides flames?

General Board / Omissions on Law School App? Need Help!
« on: January 11, 2008, 01:15:56 PM »
First, I know that is probably not the best thing on the planet.  When applying to law school I didn't disclose that I was arrested as a juvenile for a minor possession of marijuana.  I have subsequently completed my C&F applications and have fully disclosed everything.  Now time has come for my dean certification form to be sent to my law school and they will forward my application to the bar C&F, obviously this discrepency would be noticed? No?
How can I best mitigate the damage already done?
Do I disclose my omissions immediately to the law school?
Please help.  I didnt willingly lie, I couldnt get a hold of the juvenile records due to my states record keeping practices so I gave up and only disclosed what I could get my hands on. 
What to do?

I am being offered a full tuition scholarship at Catholic but Georgetown will not be offering any aid to me. 

I will need to borrow the entire cost of attendance if go to Georgetown.  Is the prestige really worth it?   

What should I do?
