Working under the table
« on: August 27, 2007, 09:44:38 AM »
Assume that someone's GPA is relatively weak owing largely to working a 30+ hour a week job during their first couple of years of college, which they plan to write a brief addendum for.  However, the job this person had was an under the table position.  Actually, for the better part of three years they did not have a "job", at least for tax purposes.

Should someone include this position in their academic resume submitted to law schools? Obviously, the real issue here isn't the schools finding out, it's the bar review committee.  Do you think the committee would dig this much?

EDIT: Please no condescending "They shouldn't be practicing law", rhetoric.  I know that there are plenty of people here that have held under the table positions or have violated copyright laws by downloading movies or what not.
