If by "fudged" you mean "lied" or "stretched the truth" on your app, FIX IT NOW!!!

If you try to get admitted to the bar and this is discovered, you could have a lot of questions to answer or in a worse case scenario, have your law degree revoked.

Lying in general is a bad idea.
Lying on a law school application seems like a very bad idea.

yeah, hippie is right.  but more importantly, you need to clear the air because if discovered after you've been accepted, they can revoke your acceptance because you didn't voluntarily come forward with the truth.  And, it's better to let them know now than to risk paying for 3-4 years of law school (100K in debt) to not be able to practice law.  that would royally suck wouldn't it?

with each application you sign, you're telling them that you are not lying...read the disclosure clause at the end of the application(s).  better now than later, don't you think.

Obviously no one else can give him good advice other than wanderer, so we should all let it go...

Perfectly understood. :-*

Well I'm sure you're just joking aroud Perversly, but there are people of black heritage who look white, or at least don't look black. (my kids, for example).

One guy I knew was born and raised in South African. So when he filled out for University he put African as his race, and when the University saw that he was white and not black tehy said he lied. Funny stuff.

If you lied and got into a school that I got rejected from, let it be known that I hate you. I have put thousands of dollars into this and you stole from me or someone else you edged out because you lied on an app.  You will make an excellent ambulence chaser someday.
