Thanks. Yea I am going to have to do some soul searching because I can almost bet I will not get scholarship money that late in the game. I will probably just apply to my top 2 schools to see how I do and not waste too much money with the unfavorable odds of success.

itzjulz hope you scored well. found the games section harder than usual, agree? Yea good think for my rationally thinking parents who told me not to worry, you have got your whole life ahead of you. thanks for all the advice. i might look into pursuing a masters, but it might not be worth getting started early (financially that is) since I can do it in four years if it go to law school for I am assuming about 30k less than if I took 5 years and got my masters first.

Yea that is exactly what I was hoping for (scholarship money) and was not sure of my chances that late in the application process. Do you think my chances are that minimal? What if I just apply to Seton Hall which is my number one school and see how I do(to avoid wasting $700). If I do not get it or do not get a satisfiable amount of scholarship money I can apply again early next cycle.

Thanks for the quick response. I closed the window. I am really questioning if law is for me or if I should go with my business major. Maybe it was for the better. Thanks again

After over 6 months or studying, I attempted to take the LSAT this morning and stupidly decided to take antihistamine to fight the effects of my cold. Bad Idea; Left the test center before finishing the third section and canceled my score. If I decide to take the February LSAT do you think I will be in any position to be accepted or is that when they only accept the cream of the crop? I was scoring in the 164 range, so I do not expect that to decrease and I have a 3.25. The schools I am looking at are Seton Hall, Rutgers,Brooklyn, Cardozo, American, and my three reaches being Fordham, Georgetown, and George Washington.

Personal Statement / Re: Should I tell them everything if they dont ask?

Will do and I am going to include in my supplement how I spoke to NY and NJ Bar and was told was history should not keep me from sitting for the bar. Thanks. Any other opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Personal Statement / Should I tell them everything if they dont ask?
« on: November 25, 2008, 04:41:38 PM »
I have a criminal history followed by over a year of recovery. I have 1 detainment, 3 separate arrests that were all dismissed, a DUI that was expunged, and a an arrest that I am on probation for right now. Some applications only ask for convictions, some for any arrest or charges juvenile and/or adult, some all charges unless expunged. I was given the advice to send the exact same list of charges, arrests, and dispositions to all schools. I was told to say something like: I know the question may have not been specifically asked but I am noting in full disclosure and candor my whole past. I would then finish it off by saying something like I am happy to say I have been in recovery since November of 2007. I will include a supplemental statement explaining the circumstances in my life but take full responsibility for my actions. The question is: Do you agree that I should tell them more than they ask? Will they look at it as being honest or look down on it? I know this is a gray area but tell me your opinion.
