I just typed up my criminal addendum.  I think it's fine.  I tried to stick to the facts.  Let me know what you guys think.

Criminal History Addendum

On March 24, 2000, at the age of 17, I was arrested, along with 22 other high school students, by the ___ Police Department (state name) and charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol.   I appeared in ____ District Court the following week (3/28/04), and I was not convicted.  I was placed on pretrial probation and informed that I was to enroll in the “Youthful Offender Substance Abuse Program”.  Six months later, my probation was terminated and I was discharged by the Probation Department.

On March 15, 2002, at the age of 19, I was charged by the ___ Police Department with threatening to commit a crime (date of offense: 1/14/02).  I made my appearance in ___ District Court on April 19, 2002, and I was not convicted.  I was informed that I was to stay away from the complainant, and I was placed on pretrial probation.  One year later, my probation was terminated and I was discharged by the Probation Department.

I am 22 years old now and I will be 23 by the time I enroll in law school.  My first charge was nearly five years ago and my second charge was nearly 3 years ago.  Also, I was not convicted of either of these misdemeanors.  I feel that I have put these transgressions in my past and also that I have learned from them and matured since these incidents.


Date: March 15, 2002
Charged With: Threatening to commit a crime
Court: ______ District Court
Disposition: 1 year of pretrial probation

This is how i was told to do it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Rant
« on: November 22, 2004, 05:04:16 PM »
It is fair. Schools have to differntiate between how difficult classes are, how difficult schools are, etc....without the LSAT it would be much more difficult to evaluate how well a person is suited for law school. In addition schools have found a strong correlation between LSAT scores and 1L grades so it is a good predictor of success in law school. I understand where you are coming from and expected to do better myself but schools need to weight the LSAt heavily.

no the poo poo aint fair. However, i do agree that there must be something else other than GPA that law schools have to judge an applicant on. ECs, PS, and WE, they really dont count for much.
