Should I list the laws schools I'm applying to?
« on: February 24, 2011, 09:56:32 PM »
Practically every app I filled out is asking for a list of schools applying to.

Why are they asking for this information? What are the pros and cons of listing each school?  Should I leave them blank?

Well someones as eagerbeaver to get a C&F violation and a degree revocation! ;D

As a rule of thumb NEVER lie on ANY thing, especially a lawschool application. It reflects on your character and fitness as a person.
May sound silly, but the dumber it is, the less you should consider lieing. After all "if  he'd lie about something this small, imagine what he'd do for something larger?!"

-and yes leaving blanks is the same as lieing. (silent fraud)

Not necessarily.  You need to read the application.  If it's a "response optional" question, a blank is simply a non-response.
