Do they do background checks though? I just called my friend and she said they only ask that because they'll do background checks to pass and take the bar...

Law School Admissions / Help! Certification signature mistake....

I want to start off by stating that I realize how stupid this error is and don't know how I let it cross my mind.

Anyway, I answered "NO" to all of the character and fitness questions. However, when I was 16 I was charged with minor in possession of alcohol and given a citation. Nothing came of it, i think i may have paid a fine. I've sent off all of my applications and just now remembered it. I haven't heard acceptances back from anyone. Also, when I was living in the dorms my roommates and I got caught with alochol from the resident assistant and we just went to a class about it, but nothing was criminally charged against us.

Should I go back and contact all of the schools and let them know about this? I'm thinking the R.A thing isn't too big of a deal, but do they have access to my juvenille records?

Peoples College of Law.

Cake or Death?




Saint Louis University of Indiana University-Indianapolis?

I sent my applications out last week and am applying to mostly tier 2 schools. A few tier 1s but I know they'll be reaches. Someone previously posted that if you waited until late December to apply that the schools may have already used up their scholarship money. Does anybody have any information about that? I'm screwed if I don't get is late December too late to hope for a lot of $$$?

I'd be willing to help you out Blair... i'm working on mine right now and hoping I don't have to cut or fool around with margins/font either.
My email is

I've already submitted my apps, but I can help proofread or edit yours if you would like. I messaged you my email address. Happy holidays!

Thanks! I'm going to take both posts advice and mess with the margins/font to include a few sentences regarding why I want their school. Thanks!

How important is it to mention the school name in the personal statement? I'm right at two pages and adding one word will make over.I'm debating taking out a sentence somewhere else in the statement to mention something about the school, but I'm not sure how important it is.

Also, if there's any volunteers to read it please message me your email address ;)

I can switch with you:)
