any instances of academic misconduct.  While a few youthful indiscretions here and there are unlikely to keep you out of the profession if properly disclosed, it's best to have as clean a record as possible.  Otherwise, have fun and enjoy life.







While in High School (last year)  I got sent out of like two classes almost all the time!  I got (hopefully only) like 6 pink slips?  please don't tell me this kills my chances?

Assuming this isn't a flame, most states don't ask about your high school disciplinary record.  I think they're more interested in whether you cheated on exams or papers in college.

A "flame"? whats a flame?


Oh I did not know that, it was dealing with College thanks for clearing that up for me.

You might want to learn how to spell though. "is there still hope," not "is their still hope"

It took a lot for me not to make corrections  ::)

Next year I will only have like three classes that will be mandatory to take I think I will fill the other slots with English classes.

Yeah sorry about that.  I have never been very good at spelling  :(  I plan on fixing that though.

Your college GPA is what matters not high school.  All you need to do is graduate high school and get into a respectable college.  Once you're there thats when GPA matters.  Noone will care about your HS GPA once you start undergrad.   

Thank god!!  I am so happy about that ;D  You just took a load off my shoulders  :)

I realize that the GPA is very crucial if I want to get into law school :)  I have a problem ... I kinda just acted like a complete tard in High School, I am still in High School and stayed back because I messed up and goofed off so tho this is my fourth year in High School I will be here for another year... (mainly to take like three classes next year)  I was wondering... If I load my next year with classes and really press myself to do good (including in this year) do you think its possible that I end my High School career with a good enough GPA?

Well it has always been on my mind to be a Lawyer of sorts or some sort of Politician.  So I am considering Law right now.  I am taking "you and the law" at my school and... well its the only kind of Law type class I have.  What would you guys recommend for me to get on the right track?
