SWM- I actually think the DUIís helped me not hurt me, since there were 10 years ago. I wrote an addendum, took full responsibility for my stupidity, and then discussed how that was a turning point in my life and all that stuff. As a side note, the Judge who handles all the ethics cases for lawyers getting disbarred here spoke at my orientation. He is also past president of the ethics committee. He was nice enough to meet with me a few weeks ago for lunch and talk about how my DUIís might affect my bar admission. The short of it is, it wonít. Keep my nose clean, donít dink/drive anymore, and it should not be a problem, FYI.
Arhodg- if you start to get a rash of rejections for your reaches, you can always contact a school and ask to be considered for their PT program as well, or just have them move your app to PT exclusively (Personally I think apply to either/or is not as good an option as just PT, as they may hold you app trying to see how both classes fill out, then not have anyplace for you).
By the way, my experience last year was the same as the year before; I really did not start to hear ANYTHING from most of my schools until late March, April and into May. And all of my apps where complete by Thanksgiving both years.
Anyway, I just finished my last exam, Contracts, so the first semester of the JD program is over for me. If anybody has any questions about law school in general, shoot away and Iíll try to answer them if I can.
So is law school what you thought it was going to be? How is the workload? Are you still glad that you are doing it?
