I posted this in another thread, yet you post it here. It has nothing to do with this subject. I'm sorry if you think I'm a loser but that's your petty little opinion and not reality.

I aqcuired 2 misdemeanors back in '01 when I was homeless. One for trespassing (standing up for my rights) and Assault on an officer (curling into a fetal position so he couldn't hit me in the face and stomach anymore). I was not properly defended by a Public Defender and am considering getting both expunged.

the question is, will these two keep me out of law school regardless of me including a statement of what really happened in regards to both of them?

I'm thinking of going into Criminal Justice and Constitutional Law. I am graduating this May with two B.A.'s, one in Theater and the other one in Religious Studies.

Thanx

Flame.

If you want to practice in Nebraska UNL is the way to go.  I doubt the joint degree makes much difference to anyone there though.  If you want to work somewhere else, you are better off going somewhere else.  My brother just finished UNL Law last year, getting a job is not easy at all.

I doubt I'll do a joint degree. Do you mean finding a job in general or finding a job with a JD from UNL?

Pay attention Einstein. The reason I have no LSAT score is because I am taking it in October and it is only August.

Scores are not the only things that Ivy league schools look at.

Also, you have yet to answer my question as to why you posted something I said in a completely different thread.

Pay attention Mr. Lizard! Pay Attention! *snaps fingers in front of Pancho's glazed eyes.

I'm saying I don't believe Harvard, Stanford, etc. are on your radar screen with no LSAT score and a 3.0 GPA.  Hell, you are .4 below Nebraska's 25th-percentile.  So, you are either woefully uninformed on the process or a flame.  That's all I'm saying - take a deep breath.

What does this have to do with his original post? Looks like your trying to distarct from the real argument by presenting evidence that has nothing to do with the arguement. Thus it is your intention to make him look like an idiot.

Mithras- Stay optimistic, apply to every school you want and don't worry about whether they let you in or not. HYS are not the pinacles of the real world that they think they are.

So you seek me out simply so you can show yourself superior and me inferior. How reptillian of you Mr. Lizard.

You MUST have the scores to get noticed by these schools, Mithras.  As it stands, I wouldn't even bet on you (unless URM) geting into HYS with a 180.  A 3.06 is quite low.

Secondly, since you didn't offer your GPA in this thread, I looked into it.  No one can give you a logical answer to your question without your #s.  

Honestly, I wish you the best of luck.  And I am not a lizard ;).

So he's supposed to know ALL about the process and about the schools?

So what if he has a record. Most people have records these days. Many of them are hardworking people who have had a lot of hard knocks in life and simply disagree with the system at one time or another. Peace protesters have records, consintious objectors have records, people just trying to survive have records. The fact that he wants to become a criminal defense attorney is admirable because far too many at the bottom are crushed by the inequalities of the legal system.

So why don't you just leave him alone to do his thing and stop being a bully.

Sorry.  I just didn't think this guy was anything but a flame.  He's talking about HYSV and Nebraska, he's got a record, and a 3.06.  I'll let him flame on or keep talking, but it seems fishy.

Do you even know what a record is? A record simply says the state considers you guilty of wrongdoing. It has nothing to do with morals but rather legal technicalities. You could be doing what's moral but if it's illegal the state creates a record for you.

Also, the word record is an extremly loaded word in this context. There is a difference between someone having a record homeless and sleeping in their car, and someone having a record for committing serial rape and murder. Sadly most people can't make the distinction but simply react when they hear the word "record".

Most people have records these days.

Ha, I don't think so.

I said I would "let him do his thing."  Go on, Mithras.  God speed.

That depends on perception. Certainly if you live in upscale suburbia then , no most on't have records, they simply pay their lawyers to take care of it.

Poorer areas however, are filled with people who have records. One reason for this is because law enforcement serves dual purposes. One "protecting" the public and two providing revenue from the state. Since the wealthy can fight off fines it is easier to get money from the poor simply because they are too poor to fight off the unethical advances of the state.

Please crawl out from suburbia and experience the lower class. They aren't bad people, they're just poor.

Thank you for enlightening me.  And no, unless you count speeding, I don't believe that most people have one.

As were you in regards to Mithras. *ZING*

You're stereotyping.  I'm not from Suburbia - not even close!  You've taken a large logical leap.

I sympathize with OP's desire to fight the man and his insistence on keeping him down.  For that reason, he should be more than welcome regardless of LSAT, GPA, history of homelessness, criminal record, citizenship, money, or absence of pulse at a law school which shares his mission and ideas.  That school is a wonderous place called PCL, and it stands to fix everything that is wrong with the legal system, one shady sole practitioner's office at a time.

If OP is one of the few, the proud, the graduating class of 4, then his dreams of becoming a lawyer will be just six tries at the bar exam away from realization!  Go for it, be all you can be!
