Current Law Students / Applying to an LLM with a Misdemeanor
« on: September 17, 2014, 07:10:19 PM »
Hi:

I was charged with a misdemeanor class 2 (criminal mischief) in the US almost 7 years ago (when I was 20 years old). Im planning on applying to several law schools, some of them among the top ranks (NYU, Columbia, Harvard, etc.). In the application forms all universities request disclosure on past criminal records.

Do you believe that having this charge will seriously affect my chances of getting in? I have very good academic records and my LORs are expected to be good as well.

Thank you in advance,
