Hey, are any of y'all taking the LSAT on June 6th? I am taking it in Edinburgh, TX. I have to drive for two hours to get to the testing center. I hope it doesn't affect my performance.
How do y'all feel about it? Confident? Scared? Please share.

You should, at this point, forgo any thoughts of what is responsible or morally right, because all your options are good. You should go to the school you feel inclined toward, and I'm guessing it's Notre Dame because of the order you put them in.

My humble opinion is that you should choose four or five of the schools you would most like to attend and then apply to them. I think you'll get into all of them. I'm happy for you. Most of us on here would like to have your set of problems.

I did not get the felony as a minor, I got it with a minor. I had my daughter in the car with me when I got arrested. Sorry if I was unclear.

I have been searching for some hard facts about getting into law school even though I am a conviced felon. I have found that, in Texas at least, a felony doesn't disqualify a person from admission to the bar if at least five years have passed since they completed their sentence. I haven't found out much else I can depend on, just a lot of differing, even contradictory, opinions. It seems that some people were not affected by their criminal history and some people were rejected outright on that sole basis. If a school is on the borderline about my application, they might see that felony and toss it. I don't know. My felony was DWI with a minor child. I was convicted in 2003 and released from probation in 2007.
What I'm going to do is wait until I get some decisions and post here again to let y'all know what happened. I am applying at St. Mary's, UT, South Texas, and U of H. I will post my numbers (LSAT/GPA) once I get them. I take the LSAT in June.

Mix it up. I do, when I'm studying, and I seem to be progressing fine.

Man, I would skip the prep course. I sometimes find real misinformation in my Kaplan book, and I don't know about Princeton Review. I think you could help yourself better. The best help I ever had was from the LSAT Superprep. Those people that teach the prep course will just stress you out, and your classmates will be on a lower level than you, so your growth will be stunted.
Or maybe I am just opposed to the classes because I can't afford them, and so I'm saying "Sour Grapes!" I'm taking the June LSAT, too.

Is law school fun? Tell me the truth, don't remind me that academics are challenging. I know that. I want to know if law school is as much fun as it seems like it would be.

If I were making the test I would make C, D, and E more common than the first three, because then people have to read more answer choices with each question and therefore eat up more time, so the test is even harder.
