False. Check the language on each application for the schools you're applying to. Some require disclosure regardless of whether or not it was expunged


Not false. Sure, some applications purport to require disclosure of expunged information. However, once that information is expunged, a) as a practical matter, it no longer exists in your accessible student file, and b) whatever remains regarding the proceedings are no longer accessible without your permission, a warrant, or a direct request from a federal law enforcement agency. Check the particular undergraduate school for its policy regarding this matter. The ombudsman will guide you through this process and inform you on how to handle those ethical dilemmas. Let me just qualify my previous post, and add that it doesn't "necessarily" need to be disclosed. While blueskies is most likely speculating, I am speaking from direct experience on the matter. Speak with your university ombudsman.

Awful advice

Law School Applications / Re: too smart for my own good?

Prediction:

You'll apply with a 3.3, 170. You'll take a scholarship to WUSTL. You'll talk often and loudly in class, feel smarter than everyone else, and believe that you were one of a few that really "got it" despite your median grades.

Columbus School of Law is a small school in Morningside Heights, NY. I'm not sure if it's accredited or not, but I've heard it's churned out some successful alumni. I don't really follow non-peer schools.

Law School Applications / Re: T-14 Chances

just a word of caution - it's not just about the numbers.  People with a 3.6+ from a tier 2 college (or very low tier 1) have a significantly smaller chance of getting into a school like Columbia or Chicago. This is because the top schools take very few people from these tier 2 schools in general, and the students with a 3.6 don't stand a chance.  However at the top undergrads, like the Ivies, the top law schools cast their nets much wider when it comes to gpa/lsat.  Thus the poster, who has a 3.65 and has graduated from an Ivy, is in very good shape.

I've met people here who think barbeque is equivalent to grilling. I had to explain that it's a type of food.

What a crappy thing to not have a search feature on a db like this.  Unbelievable.

Get with the 00's and upgrade to VBulletin.  It is the highest end product out there and, for only $200.

Buy it.

I believe the software has a built-in search function; it's disabled or not functioning right now. vBulletin sucks though.

It's warming up here. I think it's going to be in the upper 60s/low 70s all week.
