Law School Admissions / Re: Character/Fitness portion of App

Full disclosure is what they ask for, and that's what an applicant is expected to give

On those apps that asked why I left any jobs that I had, I explained. On those apps that didn't ask, I didn't explain, since it wasn't asked.

I've already disclosed it on all my applications, so that's not an issue.  And why would someone tell me to delete this discussion thread, or was that a joke (albeit not a really good one)?

I am serious about wanting to know if this will be a problem, and no...I'm not mormon LOL.  I tend to think law schools won't care about this as much as C&F committees will, but I wanted to get a variety of opinions.  Thanks for putting it into perspective  :)

I was given the choice of being fired or "asked to resign."  For many reasons, I chose the latter, and signed a memo of resignation addressed to the director of human resources (not on official office letterhead, though it is verifiable by my former employer). 

When I'll be applying for bar admission, this incident will have been five years ago, and I can assure you that there will be no more moral blemishes on my record.  Given the lapse of time, the lack of other incidents in my life, and the relative minor nature of the incident, I should be OK....but that's just my thinking.

Would the following "misconduct," if fully disclosed, prevent one from being admitted to law school, or to the State Bar... Being asked to resign from your place of employment (as  freedom of information officer) for using office resources (phone, fax) for making personal freedom of information requests?

What about being asked to resign from your place of employment (as  freedom of information officer) for using office resources (phone, fax) for making personal freedom of information requests? Would this "misconduct" keep someone from being admitted to the Bar?

Law School Admissions / How Long Before I Start To Get Decisions
« on: December 12, 2004, 06:32:03 AM »
This may hav been asked before, but... I took the December LSAT.  Once the scores come in on Jan. 4, when should I start to hear from schools with decisions?

Law School Admissions / 2.56/145 chances
« on: December 01, 2004, 04:39:06 AM »
I have an undergrad GPA of 2.56, and I've been averaging 145 on my diagnostics.  I have five years of legal work experience, and a paralegal certificate (graduated with honors; significant improvement in grades from undergrad).  What schools are looking "good" for me (to the extent that anything can look good with my lousy scores)?

Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Rant
« on: November 22, 2004, 04:21:58 PM »
You ALL place way too much emphasis on the subjective "tier" system.  A law degree is a law degree...we'll all be J.D.'s when we graduate.  I know PLENTY of people who went to what are deemed third and fourth "tier" schools who are making more than 100k per year working for major firms across the nation. No, the LSAT isn't a fair test, and no, it certainly should not be weighed as heavily as it is, but it's not something that will prevent anyone from making a very successful living.

But that's just my opinion.
