I already know (I called my laywer) I must disclose my criminal background to the law school even though my record was expunged. I was 19 when I got a DUI, I never was convicted, nor pleaded any guilt, and the record was expunged. What my question is, is do you think I should appologize for my actions, when in a legal sense I was never found guilty nor convicted. Or should I just explain the facts of the case. Her is the copy of the disclosure addendum that I will write. What I want you guys to tell me is if I should or should NOT include the last sentance where I try to assume guilt. Even though right above it, in the facts of the case, I never gave admittance of guilt.  Thanks for your imput.

Disclosure Addendum

On July 29th 2002 at the age of 19, I was arrested of drinking and driving. I was not convicted, I went on probation without any admittance of guilt, charges were dismissed and the arrest was completely expunged from my record. In good faith of true disclosure I felt it necessary to provide this information. I truly recognize how big a mistake it was and subsequently became a large advocate against drinking and driving. 

Thank you,

I'm taking it at Temple, last time I took it at Villanova Law, it wasn't a good place at all, the desks were wood and had carvings all in it making it hard to work w/o tearing the page. I hope temple is better, A change of venue, for a change in score. (hopefully)

What are the best schools for Latinos to get into?? I have heard some crazy rummors that say if you are latino, then add 5points onto your LSAT. What do you think?? I'm latino, who has a decent GPA 3.6, but terrible first LSAT, i'm testing now in the low 150's. Hopefully I can pull around 155 or higher, but we will see, realistically i'm in the high 140's low 150's. What schools have you heard about?? I though Florida schools would be tough, b/c there are already such a latino majority, maybe I could use that as a pro, since there are so many latinos in Florida, the need for latino lawyers and law students grows. What do you all think?? gracias por alguna respuesta hecha.

I did for them all. WHo cares, they read what they want to anyway.

I filled it out using the LSAC service, but after that printed them all out and mailed them myself. I think it gets to the schools quicker. Any thoughts about mailing them yourself versus electronic ommittance. ?

I'm looking at this schools website, Why aren't they ranked if they are an ABA school?
