I don't think the plagarism he described would keep him from taking the bar would it?

He could take the bar, but chances are he'd fail the character and fitness portion if he hadn't disclosed it on his application.

I'm starting to think that the trick to dealing with these problems is to apply primarily to safeties, not conventional targets. :-\

You really think the bar would outright fail him on character and fitness because of this one event? I know they are thorough and they can be strict, but I've gotten the impression that they are pretty forgiving if its something that happened a long time ago or if its something that was an honest mistake (like not disclosing something you should have, as long as you are forthcoming once you do know)

It is also my understanding that they do not weigh as much because pretty much anyone who finishes grad school has a good gpa. However, it isn't worthless. I would rate it as a soft factor on par with post undergrad work experience. How you do in regards to grad GPA is most likely equal to varying degrees of success in the real world. If you need to improve your hard factors, at this point all you can really do is retake the LSAT.

I'm a massive splitter that got my apps out late as well. Its not that I feel that adcomms are taking particularly long in deciding (heck, I pry have at least 2-3 more weeks before I can even hope to get a decision), but nonetheless every passing day is causing ulcers, a desire to drink, and ill-advised "desperation" apps to lower and lower tiered schools.

Okay, so that's based off your name. But for the 'tar my first thought was, Ribs.

3) Iowa
5) W&L

7 schools pending... hurry up and reject me already! Or hurry up and accept me so I can run to church and start praising God!
