Law School Applications / Re: An Arrest and Chance at Law Schools

It is your choice.  However, if you do not state this, they cannot find out.  Your arrest does not impact your ability in applying for law school nor in getting thru the school cirriculum.  Your answer should be, I have nothing to report that will impact or prohibit my ability in applying too or completing the course work for graduation.........


Whatever you do, do not follow oceansmarine's advice. It is imperative that you disclose the arrest in a separate statement. All law schools will tell you that failure to disclose the offense could have serious repercussions, not the least of which will come when you go for your character and fitness test to get admitted to the bar. It is advisable also to research the requirements for admission to the bar in the state in which you intend to practice, because certain crimes may prevent you from being admitted (no idea if that's true if your arrest though).

This.

Oceansmarine advice is horrible.  The fact that the arrest does not affect getting into or through law school is nearly inconsequential compared to the post-graduation process.

agree, do not leave off. Likley won't hurt being 10 years ago

I'm old, I've erned the right to complain about anything I want, its what old people do


I agree and do the same thing.  I earned the right to do it by living to the age I am and I like to yell at the TV talk show pundits. 


For me its Nacy Grace I hate that female dog but I can't stop watching her show and all I do is yell at the TV

Just "bump" a bunch of threads.  We saw that they get their panties all in a wad about doing that!


This is why I appreciate that LSD's become a ghost town.  You can pretty much do what you please, and there's nobody around to complain.  Except I guess matthies.

Limiting supply (like closing schools as some argue) never does much for demand (see war on drugs, gambling, prostitution, smoking ect.)

Are you suggesting that if we closed down the law schools people would start illegal law schools? Would the Mexican mafia get involved? Because a mafia law school would be awesome.

No, but a mafia school would be cool.

just got my first graded law school test back.  top 30% in property...

not sure how i feel about this yet...

thats better than bottom 30%, so be happy. You don't want to stress yourself out too much at this point, so don't dwell on the fact that if you don't get an A in proprty will be never get a job as a lawyer ever, anywhere, and you will be sent to debters prsion and people will poke you with pointy sticks and laugh, so there is no pressure.

Considering applying PT and transferring to FT. There is no guarantee his will work out, so it'd be nice to know the answer to the question.

E.g. GULC PT vs FT, Fordham PT vs FT

Thanks for your input.

I went to school PT and felt like there was no disavdangte when finding work. If fact it was the opposite for me since I worked FT or PT in the legal world through most of school. Had more experience and better connections than if I had gone FT and just summered.
