I really hope that this is an appropriate place to ask this. I’ve tried a lot of different places and I’m not sure where else to go.
The short version:
Straight to the point, 12 years ago I attended an out-of-state university right out of high school. After one semester, issues with my scholarship (clerical issues) left me unable to enroll in any classes my second semester so I left the school and took $3k worth of debt that I couldn’t afford to pay back.
Six years later and in better financial position, I made the choice (a wrong choice, morally) to not pay the money back and let it drop off my credit report 12 months later, and decided to go back to school (obviously, a different school). I didn’t mention that I attended another school for a semester, so I never transferred my transcript. Two and a half years later, I graduated and moved on and started my career. Since then, however, I’ve found that I really want to attend law school and become an attorney. My question is- will this just automatically disqualify me if I apply to law school and disclose this? I’m assuming that that there’s no real way to fix this, although I’d happily do what I need to in order to rectify things and attend law school. Thank you.
