Yes.  That's what I was doing.  I was bragging.
Hahahahahahaha.
Thank you for keeping the conversation active.  I do appreciate you checking in on me and letting me know you are still there.  The only question is: why? ???

To the OP:

Are you trying to gain re-admission to the school you were dismissed from, or are you trying to apply to a number of law schools in order to start over? My impression is that you are doing the former, but if you could clarify that point, that might help.

While I do not know of anyone who has petitioned for re-admission, my suggestion would be to contact the Dean's office of your former school to find out what their specific policies are (e.g., submit a whole new application, interview with the deans, etc.).  Once you have some guidance from the school, we can try to help you nail down the specifics of each task.  Good luck.

I'm attempting to gain readmission into the school that dismissed me.  Per ABA rules, I would have to wait another year (!) to apply to other schools.

I spoke with a dean about readmission, but they didn't have much information to give.  Essentially, they accept petitions in February of each year.  They usually get 12-16 and admit 4-6.  They told me they consider extenuating circumstances, changes made to minimize those circumstances, things that happened that may have affected performance, what you've done since being dismissed, etc.

If you have some time, I wrote out a description of what happened in the first post of the thread that might help fill in the details.

Thanks!

Seriously?  Nobody else is thinking what I was thinking right from the start?

I hope you don't mean me....

I'm dead serious.  I am looking for help.  If you know anyone who has successfully petitioned for readmission, I'd love to hear about it.

Suggestions are welcome, so long as they aren't of the 'give up, moron' type.  I've already made up my mind that I am going to try and get back in, so if anyone reading this feels compelled to try to convince me otherwise, they should be forewarned that it is a waste of their time.

I thought that was clear from my first post, but I guess not.

Oh and 3LEMan, where do you go to law school? You make fun of the T4 so well...you sound like a T2/T3 with a major self esteem issue.

I go to GW, and in all honesty, if I had had to pay full-price here I wouldn't have gone.  I opted for GW over a top 10 because it saved me substantial sums of money. 

Also, if you read my posts, I don't have a problem with lower ranked schools, they just aren't worth the cost. 

Finally, your situation was different.  You had a moral screw up as a youth.  The OP failed out of law school, and a crappy one at that........

How do you know how good my law school is exactly?

GW is a great school.  According to LSAC, zero 1st years were academically dismissed.  You should know that my school has the highest dismissal rate in the state I live in.  From what I can tell, the school has a policy in place designed to shed about 10% of each entering class.

Can you lay the @#!* off of me and get on with your life, or are you required now to throw a shot my way to prove how big your cock is?

Cooley?

Nope.  Turned down scholarship money there though....

Generally, schools with a high dismissal rate are toilet schools that shouldn't be around.  It's a money hungry thing to do.  Rather than reject unqualified students, they admit you, then boot you when you inevitably fail....

Thanks for sharing your opinion.  I appreciate it, but couldn't care less.

Don't you have anything else to do, like maybe study?

Yes, you would only like my opinion if it was "you rock."

No.  What I would like is if you would go back and read my initial post where I asked for advice and help.  You might notice this time that I did not ask for your opinion on readmission, but was clearly seeking guidance.

I would love your opinion if you responded to the questions posed in the initial post.  That would be awesome.

But each time you've posted, you've done so to discourage me, make fun of me, rip me and make me feel bad. 

So.  Would you like to be helpful or is your switch stuck on 'a-hole'?

OP you seem like a hard working, well spoken, and intelligent person...Surely you will find success at becoming an attorney. Unlike Mr. 3L guy says, everyone does not have a picture perfect past, but this by no means precludes this bunch from having a successful future...Just two years ago I made a large mistake (as a UG) that ended up in a felony charge after a drunken disorderly incident in which a car window got broken...I never would have thought that I would be able to recover, I almost was expelled from my prominent public university (top 3 in the country), I never would have thought I could get into any law school (with a criminal record)...Im sure 3L guy would have told me to give up on my quest to go to law school...My priority track Duke acceptance puts these naysayers to shame...Keep on working, and keep on trying Denny...you do that and your chances of failure are non-existant...you might want to try and re-apply to several law schools though, it sounds like with your situation a law degree and a bar passage is all you need...You don't need a t14 law degree to get gainful employment.

Maturity?  Encouragement?  ON LSD?????@!?!?!?!?!?

:-)

Thanks.  I appreciate you.

Actually I'm happily married.  Thanks for asking.  

It's funny how people attack me for making assumptions, yet many of you do the same.  You assume that because I'm a feminine hygiene product on this board (which I sometimes am), that I must be a freakish loser in real life.  It's amusing.

Anyway, good luck to the OP.  I'm sure you will excel in life letting daddy pave the way for you.  

Hey thanks!  I appreciate you being so NICE and avoiding being a prick.

And just so YOU know, Daddy hasn't paved the way for me before.  My last job was for a fortune 500 and I left it because I wanted to go to law school.  I did just fine without daddy's help.  I guess I should be telling my dad to @#!* off instead of taking his help.  That's what you would do, so it must be a best practice.

I'm sure you will excel at life by utilizing that winning personality and an inability to comprehend and analyze information.

Also, you might consider learning how to communicate with others.  So far, you've made yourself look like a real live a-hole, which I'm sure you reserve for this board only.

Now, can we move on people?
I'd love some actual advice and I'm not terribly happy to have had my thread hijacked by an unhappy, small minded, married male with communication and reading comprehension issues.
