Taking over the number one slot, replacing "how do I get out of jury duty," the question "I failed to disclose an arrest (or 7) on my (law school application, bar application,) comes in via phone and e-mail throughout the week.
Although I enjoy speaking with Bar applicants, the frequency of this question and subsequent discussion bring me to this post, which I hope will provide the answers.
 If you are in law school and just realized through a conversation with a fellow student, professor, or while filling out your Bar application that you may have failed to disclose an arrest, DISCLOSE IT NOW. Otherwise known as AMEND YOUR APPLICATION. Go to the Admissions office and find out the proper procedure.
 DISCLOSE IT NOW. AMEND YOUR LAW SCHOOL APPLICATION No, don't think about whether you will be kicked out of law school, DISCLOSE IT NOW. AMEND YOUR APPLICATION.
 If the proper procedure is to "tell" a Dean, when you go to "tell" a Dean, bring with you a letter disclosing the arrest. This way when you are at your Bar hearing for failing to disclose, you won't have to try and remember when and where you "told a Dean."
 You are not the first person in the world or at your law school to fail to disclose an arrest. Get over it.
 Whether you failed to disclose because you had a sealed or expunged record and thought you didn't have to, or you were embarrassed, acknowledge the reason. Remember, at the moment you first attempt to fix your mistake, you are showing the Bar your candor and fitness to practice law.
 Whatever the law school requires you to do as "punishment" for failing to disclose, do it. Do not whine about it, try to get out of it, or not do it.
LAW SCHOOL GRADUATES
You have a little bit of a different problem. You now have a law degree. You wonder if they are going to take it away from you.
That's not legal advice or a prediction, that's just my thought based on my experience with this situation.
 DISCLOSE IT NOW. AMEND YOUR LAW SCHOOL APPLICATION.
 If you do not DISCLOSE IT NOW, AMEND YOUR LAW SCHOOL APPLICATION the Bar will ask you to do after you apply to the Bar (if they haven't already)
 If you want to wait to see if they "find out about it," you are an idiot. One of the first things state Bars do it get copies of your law school application.
 You grads will notify the law school in writing. You will tell them why you failed to disclose. You also will be completely open.
 If it was one small arrest, you will probably receive a letter, copied to the Bar, saying something like they "don't condone your behavior," but allowing you to move on with no scars.
 If it is an issue of several arrests, you will receive a letter, copied to the Bar, saying that you are a piece of crap liar undeserving of Bar admission, but you can keep your degree scumbag.
PRACTICING LAWYERS ADMITTED TO ONE BAR WHERE THEY NEVER REALIZED YOU DIDN'T DISCLOSE ON YOUR LAW SCHOOL APPLICATION BUT NOW YOU WANT TO APPLY TO ANOTHER BAR AND DON'T KNOW IF THE OTHER BAR WILL NOTICE THAT YOUR CURRENT BAR DIDN'T NOTICE
Yeah, that was an interesting one for me too.
Good luck, and DISCLOSE, NOW.
