Widener must have the evening division wrapped around their finger here in central PA, and know it. My numbers were competitive in comparison to yours, and I got no grant offers.

A school I'm applying to wants the PS to be no more than two pages double spaced. I've managed to whittle down a 12pt single space, two page, times new roman Personal Statement down to a 10.5pt, 1.5 space, two page, arial narrow Personal Statement without removing anything. How cool am I? Will these hijinks land my application in the round file?

If the charges were dropped and you still need to include it, try and state (if its true) that the pot wasnt yours. You all but say it. so why not just say it?
They didn't ask anything about the 'crime' or lack thereof. They are only interested in the records and outcome. Regardless, I'll send it as is.

Do you think this is stiffing the admissions people? I don't want to offend the committee, but I also don't want to pay the lawyer to go fish out his old records of my case. The university in question explicitly asks for court records and/or police reports. This is my character and fitness statement to explain being charged with posession (information changed so I don't get e-stalked):
(I just read the TINFOIL HAT thread floating around, hence the deletion of my criminal history statement.)
Get a $2 timer from walmart. Take out the 4 screws that hold the back on. Cut and remove the two wires going to the speaker/beeper with your fingernail clippers. Assembly is reverse of removal. If you screw it up, you're out two bucks.

I had 12 d's in my 1st LR section
Definitely. There is a test mind lock that happens whenever the real event rolls around. It happened in college, on the EIT, PE, and the first time I took the LSAT. It's normal and helpful, and makes an 8 hour test seem like 1.
Is it just me, or has studying the LR Bible caused you to slow down, overanalyze, and dissect every LR question. I think I did better when I went on intuition. I wish I'd never heard of a sufficent condition.
Now, I'm looking for conditional reasoning in the RC sections without thinking about it.
