I would notify  your school. Also if you get a good attorney there is a chance that you can get this dismissed - with probation and a fine.. So that means it wont be on your record..

Usually a good attorney  will never make you any promises, but they should be able to tell you the chances of dismissal. Explain the situation about you going to law school and that you did not drive to the establishment / cell phone dead, so that is why you went back..

what is the sarcasim about with the 'lol'. The person who is laughing, did you get into anyones law school to know anything about this process?

Since the original poster scored in the 99th percentile, meaning you did better than 99 percent of applicants who apply, and with the LSAT generally being the single most weighted item for consideration, you should at least apply to Harvard if that is where you want to go.. I know a guy who applied to harvard later in the cycle, and scored in the lower 170's with a GPA similar to yours and got waitlisted at Harvard. He did have a hard major however (science/math). I believe that he would have gotten in if he applied earlier.

i think you have a shot, i've seen stranger things happen

Applying early is key (before Dec 15th if possible)

Just make sure your personal statement and addendum is flawless. 

the schools that you mention don't have the breakdown listed on acceptance by GPA  and LSAT like many schools do

I think with your lsat you could get a full ride somewhere, EVEN with your low GPA

so hopefully you will be more open.

good luck

Law School Admissions / Are Thank you letters appropriate?

I recently visited a school, and as apart of the visit, they allow you to meet and speak with the dean of admissions. Is it appropriate within the norm to send a thank you letter after the visit?


Black Law Students / Re: The Howard Law/HBCU Law Schools Thread
« on: February 16, 2009, 04:26:20 PM »
Well what I did notice about NCCU from the ABA data sheet is that most of the law students are not black. I found this to be rather peculiar. Just like I would find it odd to see more black students than white students at Georgetown or GW. Something about that does not sit right with me, and that is why I did not apply there. I mean an HBCU has alot of meaning and history behind it, and I went to one for undergrad, and I think it would be a sad day if they all vanished. I decided that would rather wait and get my scores up rather than apply to NCCU. I guess my point is that it makes me wonder if the non blacks who do attend NCCU only went there because they had low lsat scores and could not get in anywhere els

Studying for the LSAT / Answer key

Ok excuse me if this is a dumb question, but are the answer keys available online somewhere for the previously administered LSAT's? I assumed when you ordered the tests from the company, the answer keys came with them. Apparently I was wrong  :D
