Choosing the Right Law School / Re: BAD CRIMINAL RECORD! ADVICE PLEASE
« on: February 23, 2005, 03:56:19 PM »
My record consists of five petty thefts, attempted receiving stolen property, trespassing, driving under suspension, criminal damaging. All misdemeanors.
I heard the same about Cooley and Texas Southern. Does anyone know anything about volunteer work? Would that help with my character?

Choosing the Right Law School / BAD CRIMINAL RECORD! ADVICE PLEASE
« on: February 23, 2005, 02:35:57 PM »
I've been denied from six schools in a row so far. All of them have told me it is because of my criminal record. Ohio Northern voted 6-0 to reject my application. My numbers are 155/3.09

Akron-Reject
Ohio North.-Reject
Dayton-Reject
Toledo-Reject
Florida Coastal-Reject
Capital-Reject

Does ANYONE know of any schools I should apply to who are more willing to give people a second chance. Does anyone know of anything I can do to show my character is trustworthy?

Law School Admissions / Twelve Misdemeanors is Keeping Me Out of Law School
« on: February 18, 2005, 03:25:51 PM »
I have twelve or thirteen criminal/traffic convictions from when I was 18 and 19 (23 now). They were just a bunch of driving under suspension and petty thefts with a 4 month stint in jail. Does anyone think I will get shutout? Anyone know someone in a similar situation? Please give me some answers, I need them.
155/3.09
U of Akron/Rejected
U of Toledo/Rejected
Ohio Northern/Rejected
Capital/Rejected
Case Western/Rejected
I have other's pending, but I was dinged at Capital and O Northern so I know I am in trouble now.

Does anyone think I should just apply to every law school in the country? Does anyone think I have a chance or know someone in a similar situation. I have been searching for answers for two years, and I have found no one in a similar situation.

the darned lsac website said that statistically I would most likely get into akron for sure...that didn't happen. I really need CleveSt. or Case now. They are the closest to my home without me having to move. Toledo would be my next choice.
