Studying for the LSAT / 6-6-11
« on: June 04, 2011, 01:34:42 PM »
Hey, are any of y'all taking the LSAT on June 6th? I am taking it in Edinburgh, TX. I have to drive for two hours to get to the testing center. I hope it doesn't affect my performance.
How do y'all feel about it? Confident? Scared? Please share.

U of Texas - Austin / Applying to Law School With a Felony
« on: May 08, 2011, 07:22:22 AM »
I have been searching for some hard facts about getting into law school even though I am a conviced felon. I have found that, in Texas at least, a felony doesn't disqualify a person from admission to the bar if at least five years have passed since they completed their sentence. I haven't found out much else I can depend on, just a lot of differing, even contradictory, opinions. It seems that some people were not affected by their criminal history and some people were rejected outright on that sole basis. If a school is on the borderline about my application, they might see that felony and toss it. I don't know. My felony was DWI with a minor child. I was convicted in 2003 and released from probation in 2007.

What I'm going to do is wait until I get some decisions and post here again to let y'all know what happened. I am applying at St. Mary's, UT, South Texas, and U of H. I will post my numbers (LSAT/GPA) once I get them. I take the LSAT in June.
