Law School Admissions / Re: does a DUI on record: affects bar admissions/ law school admissions? how much?« on: August 25, 2010, 08:33:50 PM »
Oh and btw OP- Sorry for usurping your thread. Most of our ranting and bickering isn't' helping you.

I am not sure, but the three times is the killer.
Honestly how dumb can you be? I know your looking for advice, but really, three times? Thats just dumb and I hope you get clean, and I really wish you luck, but do you understand you could have killed somebody? Do you even care? I would say no matter how you respond, you don't, because you have done it AT LEAST two more times (probably alot more). This is just a huge problem with me. So after the rant, I will answer your question.
There is character that comes into play, and frankly three DUIs is probably going to be a major problem getting admitted into the bar, and most schools will look at that as a huge negative when deciding admissions. You could argue that one DUI is a mistake, but three, thats just bad character and horrifically selfish.
I would say you will have a very very difficult time getting into law school, but with very good numbers, you may be able to find some schools to take you. Though I would check with the bar assosisation to see if you would qualify to be admitted before you spend the money on law school.
And the MIP, not that it would usually be a problem, but I am sensing a pattern here.
