Studying for the LSAT / Freaking out...
« on: October 10, 2007, 01:11:39 PM »
All of sudden today, I thought "What if I screwed up bubbling in the questions, what if I skipped over a question by mistake and for the next one I bubbled in where I should have bubbled in the skipped question, then all the questions after that are out of place meaning I probably bombed the whole section because of one little stupid mistake?" I'm hoping I'm just being irrational, but has anyone else just started to think of stupid sh*t you might have done, no matter how irrational it may seem. I can't take this wait any longer.

Are a lot of Harvard law students stuck up snobs? Is anyone there friendly? Does anyone try to make friends with their classmates?

10 more days of agony and constant worry about what my score is gonna be.

Law School Admissions / Speaking another language...

How good does it look to law schools to be proficient in more than one language? My first language is English but I also speak Italian and I was just wondering if this is something I should definitely include on my resume or application.

Just reading this thread is making me nervous.

Do you think I need to explain why the case was thrown out and I wasn't convicted? Or should I just simply say I was arrested, charged, but then it was thrown out and I have no conviction or criminal record. It's weird because some schools only care about convictions, other want arrests and charges as well. One of the schools that only cares about convictions has a much higher rank than the ones that want to know everything. I would think the better the school, the more they want to know about its applicants.

As I begin filling out applications I noticed that every single one asks a variation of the question above. Some ask ONLY if you have been convicted of a crime other than a traffic violation, others ask if you have been arrested or charged, regardless of whether you were convicted or your record was expunged. A few years ago, I was arrested and charged with a DUI and possession of a small amount of marijuana. The case was thrown out, I was not convicted, and the arrest is not on my record, however, in the case where the appplication asks if I have ever been arrested or charged, I will attach an addendum explaining the situation. How much of an effect will this have on my chances of getting into schools? I'd imagine there are a number of law students who have had a run in with the law before, such as DUI or something similar.

Just relax Krystal, enjoy your Sunday and contact them first thing Monday morning. It will all get sorted out I'm sure. Worrying about it today isn't going to help a bit. Just don't think about it today and the day will go by much faster and before you know it you will be on the phone with LSAC getting this mess straightened out. Let us know what they say.
