Law School Admissions / A difficult application question
« on: August 13, 2012, 05:18:38 PM »

I'm taking the LSAT this coming October with the intention of starting law school in the Fall of 2013.  In December, I'll be graduating Suma Cum Laude with an M.A. in linguistics. I also currently work full-time as a law clerk (Part-time during the school year).

After finishing my bachelors  in June, 2010 and before starting the M.A. program that I'm currently in, I enrolled in three French courses as a non-matriculated graduate student at a state university. I never finished the semester and stupidly did not formally withdraw from the classes. So herein lies my predicament: Obviously, I would prefer not to have to put this on any law school application given that I likely received three incompletes or F's for those classes (I'm only assuming; I never received nor asked for my grades/transcripts). My question is, are there any people out there who know one way or the other if this sort thing, i.e. non-matriculated graduate work that for all other intensive purposes (hopefully to include law school applications) "never happened", will be necessary to disclose on my law school applications?

A disclaimer to any potential nay-sayers: I completely understand the repercussions of non-disclosure on applications and will, without a doubt, err on the side of caution in this regard and I do plan on meeting with an admissions counselor sometime soon to ask this exact question. I'm just curious if there's anyone out there that has some knowledge about this, or a similar issue so I can hear some opinions in the meantime.
