Every law school app has what is called a “character assessment” section. The question that concerns me usually goes: Have you ever been charged of or convicted of any offense except a minor traffic violation? In my case, the answer is yes. When I was thirteen years old, stupid, and eager to fit in, I smoked some weed, and got busted. I don’t understand how what I did ten years ago, as a stupid kid, has any bearing on the quality of my character as a professional adult. I don’t want to check yes. What should I do?
What should the addendum look like? I smoked some pot when I was 13. I am no longer a drug user. Please excuse my poor judgement. What a bunch of BS. Just another way to help out the good ol' boys.
