Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Low GPA, High LSAT
« on: July 07, 2008, 09:31:10 PM »
I would apply to the list as follows:

Fordham 25%
George Washington 30%
Georgetown 25%
Northwestern 25%
Notre Dame 35%
Illinois 25%
Texas 25%
WUSTL 75%
Washington and Lee 35%
Emory 25%

The percentages are based on the LSAT/UGPA calculator at the LSAC website.

You know how many people have wet dreams of WUSTL, Emory and Illinois as their safeties? You will get into a good school, you may even get into a T14.

I would write an addendum explaining your grades and call the admissions offices where you apply. Write a good personal statement and get some good letters of recommendation! Good luck!

I've never worked at the Federal Reserve and I wasn't a finance or econ major, but I still understand how the monetary system works. I'm not a physicist, but I still understand how nuclear weapons work. I don't own stock, but I can tell you how the market functions. I've never been to Africa, but I can still tell you 200 reasons not to go there. You can actually learn things without doing them. It's called research. It's a pretty fundamental part of a decent education and something that should have came up once or twice during your time in UG. Additionally, I, like a good number of the people here, have several friends in law school and know a few attorneys. This isn't exactly an uninformed opinion that I've developed.

Please don't go to law school. You're entirely too stupid to be involved in the legal profession.

Since you know a doctor and have watched the Discovery Channel, will you please perform open-heart surgery on me?  ::)

Again, you're an idiot. Seriously, no more responses for you.

I bet you are going to run circles around opposing counsel and really impress judges.  :)

Good luck in your legal endeavors.  :)

And one more thing. Getting a record expunged in Illinois isn't so easy.

You retard, I just had something expunged in Illinois and it took all of about 30 seconds for a judge to the sign the order, the order to be sent off to the state police, local police and city attorney. You are such a fricken joke. Stop giving advice you retard. I didn't even have to supply background information or tell the Judge why I wanted the expungment. I am seriously laughing at you right now. You are an idiot.

You're the idiot. If your dumba$$ would have looked at the links I posted you would have seen that you can't get a pot possession record expunged in Illinois until 5 years after you get off of supervision.

You're the joke. I'm sorry you want to be right about everything, but you're too big of an idiot to see that you're wrong.

So are you trying to say that the OP won't have a more difficult time? You're a tool. Anytime you have anything on your record they look at it more harshly. Just because its "not a big deal" in Michigan doesn't mean it won't be in some jurisdictions. Once again, READ MY POST. I said the OP would have a more difficult time. I didn't say it was impossible to be admitted.

God you're an idiot.

And again, I'm not a 1L you f*cking retard. I just graduated and I'm studying for the bar. Once again READ before you spout off.

Had you graduated from anything you would not be engaging in this argument. You have been proven wrong time and again. So, I am calling you out as a liar.  ;D

Incoming 1Ls / Re: visible tattoos
« on: June 30, 2008, 10:41:19 PM »
I'm getting mine zapped this summer, both to prevent any potential problems with "professionalism," but mostly because I'm sick of it. Youthful mistake. Wish I could save that removal fee, though.

I wouldn't get mine again, but I certainly have no desire to get them removed.

Good luck with the removal. Just like a tattoo is a choice, so is removal. Whatever floats your boat.

Thanks for all the feedback. I will be owing up to my mistakes, with out a doubt and I hope I have a fair run for 09'.


I plan to have a few statements:

1. PS
2. DS
3. Arrest addendum
4. and Scholarship

Will they even read this "book" I am writing them, lol, any thoughts?

Most of my application packets ended up being 10-12 pages and schools seemed to read all of it.

Same here.

But, DontQuestionMe, you seem to be ignoring the indisputable FACT that Budlaw MUST be right because he punctuates his posts with ALLCAPS whereas you, at least initially, managed to respond more calmly :) 

It is just unreal, because Illinois is known as one of the easiest states in the country to get an expungment. I had some stupid stuff on my record. It did not stop me from getting into T1 law schools, it will not stop me gaining admission to the bar or anything else. I got an expungment, I wrote my addendums, I fessed up, I sought the advice of legal counsel, turns out, none of these items which were freaking me out are a big deal.

It isn't like the OP is a convicted sex offender, murderer, drug kingpin, etc. These are stupid misdemeanor mistakes young people make. I not only know from personal experience Budlaw is wrong, but I have spoken to Character and Fitness board members in two states who have told me he is wrong. The guy simply does not know what he is talking about.

Lawyers are not perfect people. Everyone makes stupid mistakes when they are young. A misdemeanor pot bust and MIP are not something ANYONE cares about! I know NORML lawyers who openly advocate and USE marijuana. I personally know people who have put marijuana use on their Character and Fitness disclosure sheet, without a problem, it happens in California all of the time.

We're not talking about marijuana USE here. This isn't some esoteric debate about "is it really harmful" we're talking about a marijuana conviction. Two totally different things when it comes to bar admissions. He WILL have an uphill battle. I don't care how you try to frame it. Its not going to be as simple as just filling out a bar application. He'll have to do some extra things. AND some states WILL NOT admit him since it was so recent.

I'm just trying to offer some realistic advice here. I'm sorry if some of your OPINONS were hurt by FACT. I think the OP wanted some real analysis, not some candy sugar coated bull that you see everywhere on this useless board.

I am laughing. I talked to a member of the state of Michigan Character and Fitness committee who told me if every attorney who has been convicted of possession of pot, dui, etc. were not admitted to the bar, there would be no attorneys. He said that was true in all state. He went on to say that "kids" who haven't even started 1L shouldn't be giving opinions on online message boards.  ;D

Actually I'm a hundred percent RIGHT about what I said. An expungement DOES NOT matter for the character and fitness examiners on the bar. You still have to tell them about your past criminal record.

He may pass the character and fitness exam, but then again, he may not. And he will definately have a harder time. And NO, some schools won't touch him simply because of this issue. Adcoms don't matter at this point anyway. When you have a drug charge, its the BAR you should be worried about.

And I'm a recent grad who RECENTLY WENT THROUGH THIS ENTIRE CHARACTER AND FITNESS PROCESS. So I do have a clue about what I'm talking about. I suggest you actually research an issue before YOU talk about it. God you're such a D-bag.

Wow, you really are clueless. Unless you scan and post your bar card, I will not believe you. I will call you out, you are a liar.

I personally spoke with a member of the Michigan Character and Fitness Committee about this issue, you are wrong wrong wrong.

1) Expungment shows you have moved past the issue and done something about it.

2) You are a retard.  ;D
