We’ve told you not to puff or…exaggerate…,or well, lie when applying for jobs. We know you know this. But just to drive that home, just to prevent inadvertent or advertent puffery, I’m bringing this to your attention. This is a guy who was actually censured by his state bar association for lying about his law school grades. He didn’t forge a new transcript—he just adjusted some grades and was only caught when he had to provide an official transcript to his new employer. His employer held the transcript up to the light and saw the actual grade entered and the jig was up. He was fired and reported to the state bar. He was censured. Law school is a competitive place but don’t get sucked into this kind of behavior. Your credibility and reputation are vital to your success as a lawyer. So if you are thinking that you might switch your B- to a straight B (after all, they’re both B’s, right?), think again.
