Law School Applications / Criminal Convictions W/ Regards to Admissions
« on: January 26, 2012, 12:36:53 AM »
Overall I am a person of great character, however in the past years I have been in trouble with the law several times.

1.Starting when I was 17, I received a DUI.
2.When I was 18, I received a ticket for possession of less than 1 oz. of marijuana that was later dismissed w/ completion of youth diversion program.
3. Lastly when I was 21, I received a conviction for disturbing the peace as a result of urinating in an alley on the way home from a bar.

I want to know how much these run ins with the law will affect my chances of going to schools such as Pepperdine and USD.AlsoI was curious as to what forum members think is the best way to deal with these on my application would be. I am going to be honest and disclose all the offenses.

I have a 3.47 GPA and plan to score around 162-164 on my LSATs based on practice tests.
