3 kids here, 2 3 and 4 year old boys!

Starting soon, doing the degree by correspondence.. I am in total panic to as to how to organize my time for family, full-time job (self employed) and doing the degree.

Best thing is to share ideas!

Law School Applications / Hello all, from Tokyo Japan

Hello, I am new here..

I am in a bit of a stupid self inflicted situation.
I recently applied for the external LLB program at London Uni.

In my application I omitted to mention I have studied previously elsewhere for 1 semester with good grades in Legal Systems, Criminal Law and Contemporary issues in Law and Society subjects. Also I have a finished certificate degree from the same University.

My reason for omitting this was due to me owing some money to the university and I didn't want this to surface.

London Uni has accepted my application on the condition I first finish a (any) course to show I have can participate on Uni level studies. I am mid thirties and other then the above I have absolutely no schooling what so ever as I started working before High school.

I am positive and sure about my success if I undertake this degree, I do not however want to lose another year (I am not getting younger) by first doing another (1 year course)

I wonder, if I let them know now at this stage that I omitted some information (above) how would I go about this? would I put my chances at risk? Should I do the extra year (also financially not the best choice)
