California helped George McGovern stay in the race back in 1972 and California will keep bernie in the race as well...

So clinton fans you have to wait until California independents cast their vote. 

lol...that's in June!

Hillary WILL lose that state.

...but the FBI May put her campaign to bed earlier than that.

First, as Loki stated, individual law schools are free to make their admissions requirements more restrictive than the ABA standards. For example, the ABA does not require law schools to insist that applicants hold a bachelor's degree, but most law schools will not accept applicants without one.

Second, and more importantly, it's not a bad idea for schools to refuse to admit applicants who have been academically disqualified. The chances that the applicant will not succeed the second time around are high.

When you have plenty of well qualified applicants, what's the incentive to give a seat to one who has already attempted and failed at law school?

I'm very sorry to say that-- at least in the case of the University of Florida Levin College of Law-- passaroa25 is correct: UF won't even consider the application of a formerly academically disqualified applicant. This remains the case EVEN THOUGH the ABA has completely waived any required waiting period before reapplication and simply requires the would-be second round law student to make "an affirmative showing" that they possess the requisite intellectual and academic skills to complete law school and contribute to the diversity, prestige, and talent pool of the class. Seems incredibly narrow-minded to me, but here's the rule. We don't have to like or even respect it (I'm glad to hear that Michigan is more open-minded toward second chances): "INELIGIBILITY FOR ADMISSION
........
Applicants who have attended another law school and are ineligible to return as a continuing student or are not in good standing (including, but not limited to, having been academically dismissed), are not eligible to apply to the Levin College of Law."

Holy thread necromancy!

Well, since this was brought up, individual law schools can, of course, have admissions requirements that are more restrictive than the ABA minimum. So the lesson, as always, is check with the school you will be applying at. It shouldn't be hard.

Regarding UF, it makes more explicit what is implicit at some other schools (cf. FSU - "Applicants must be in good standing at all institutions attended to be eligible for consideration."). The reason why the Florida schools, as opposed to some other schools, might have a more ... selective approach here is because Florida has one of the most demanding character and fitness (if not the most) applications in the nation. Seriously. I've gotten my bar license in multiple jursidictions, and while some jurisdictions are a rubber stamp, Florida is more like a proctological exam.

Look, I assumed this was a joke at first too, but seriously many states let you do law school with only 60 credits as their prelegal education requirement. And most the lawyers in those states have jack clue of it.

I know since I have had arguments with idiots who go the full "I've been doing this 30 years..........nothing of value in middle............have you???"

@#!* those guys (not the gals, they'd enjoy it)

Once you get licensed no one gives a *&^% unless you go big law, and unless your family is in big law you will never get in with a 4.0 from Harvard but WILL get in with a 2.0 from cooley if you have family in it (reality)

Like the FBI investigation. It's in periodicals. And you know, like the FBI interrogations for huma, cherryl and jake...which you can get from periodicals... I'm not wrong😉

Sanders is seriously poised to WIN California.

And if you understand politics you know sanders campaign is highly aware of FBI investigation and WILL NOT get out of the race until that is resolved.

Sorry Charlie...fbi trumps politics and you could research it yourself with 527 periodicals
