Hello all, first time poster here.
Anyway, I am a current federal employee applying to part time programs in the DC area. Nice GPA and LSAT score and am going to submit my applications tomorrow. Questions regarding the criminal addendum:
In Jan. 2003 I was cited with Disorderly conduct outside of a party after calling 911 b/c a girl was all jacked up from booze. The cop was basically a prick and cited me. Anyway, magistrate dismissed the charge when I went to the hearing. What do I put on the application?
In roughly Dec. 1999 I was arrested for underage drinking, posession of a fake ID, and public intoxication. When I went to the hearing all charges were dropped and I pled guilty to disorderly conduct. However, for some reason they must have messed up and put down public intox. as what I pled guilty for. Obviously you can't have underage not guilty and public intox. guilty. What should I put in this case? Just roll with what the record says since it was so long ago and I don't know how it could possibly be resolved?
Basically just wondering what I am supposed to put down and how it will affect the admissions process. It is a total load of garbage that we need to list things that are dropped completely like the bogus disorderly but c'est la vie.
P.S. I hope everybody is having a happy holiday season......
