Bar app question - one of my former internship supervisors didn’t put the year that he was admitted on the employment affirmation form, just the state (NY). I’d rather not go back to ask him to fix it. Will this have any impact on my app?

I can’t imagine something like this mattering. I would just submit the form as is (with the blank year) if you’re worried about writing it in (which I don’t think matters either). The year of admission is something the bar has access to anyway. If it were me, I’d write in the year on the form, scan it and email it to the supervisor and say smthg like “Hi, I noticed you left your year of admission blank so I filled it in for you - please see attached, let me know if this is ok with you” etc. Then get him to say it’s fine and submit the app.

You're not forging his signature. Asking him to fix it is also reasonable.

Just put it in yourself. Include a note if you want “included by applicant,” or a rider explaining that the signer forgot to put it in but the web indicates his admin date is ____ (although riders are discouraged unless necessary). I filled most of the form out myself before I sent it to my past employers, including all their personal info. All they had to do was sign it, unless the wanted to include a comment. Some did some didn’t.

Filling out a form and asking someone to sign it is TOTALLY different from adjusting an already signed form. One is fine and another one is tempering. Don’t play around with it and just ask the person to fix it.

Thanks all. I just went back and asked this morning and it was a non-issue.

I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too. Alternative is to focus on meetups to meet founders, getting a better job and hit the accredited investor status so I can invest with angels. Undergrad was a top business school, so I feel strong with finance and other functions.

How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx

Am I complaining for nothing?
