Law School Applications / Re: What to do (past charges addendum)

Okay I will list it.  All it is is a weapons discharge for shooting a BB gun in my back yard and a smoking violation that was withdrawn by the police department.


P.S.  Would you mind letting me see your addendum to GW?  If you don't want to share your past I understand.

GMU thankfully only wants misdemenors or fellonies which is nice b/c my charges were summary offenses. 

With GW, I still don't plan on listing a juvenile offense.  The records are not released and I think its stupid that they ask for them.

Anybody have recommendations on how to word the above mentioned charges?  Also, for Georgetown they only want convictions so how should I mention my public intox. without bringing up the other charges.

Anybody Applying to Georgetown, American, Catholic, and or GW?  I am wondering how you are all interpreting what they want for criminal history.  For Gtown they only want criminal convictions so should I just leave out all the charges except the public intoxication?  If so, how should I word the public intox. and what happened without listing the other crap?

Well how do they want things worded?  I have been told that they only want the date, charge, and disposition of the case, leaving out any explanations.

Law School Applications / What to do (past charges addendum)

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......
