LOTS of JD students have felonies who later get licensed just fine as well.

I don't think lots of JD students have felonies, and then get licensed. Misdemeanors , yes, but not felonies. Even in CA (which is pretty lax) a felony conviction results in disbarment proceedings.

If someone has a felony they better check with their state bar before spending three years and $100k on law school.

If you don't like to speak disrespectfully of the deceased, then don't!

Mid-terms in law school?

Also, half of that stuff is not necessary.

Most likely a Cooley student wrote it, they have those there

Some states may not let you get licensed in their state, but you can get the degree all the same, there are no ABA rules against it for the JD or the LLM (even if you Charles Manson in theory)

True law schools have a lot of regulations for J.D.'s, but almost none for LLM's so if your goal is to get a LLM you could probably have a felony, but if you are using the LLM to get into a state bar those regulations will not matter.

I do not like to speak disrespectfully of the deceased but he appears to have gotten his legal experience after being sentenced by the IRS for some sort of tax evasion:

IMO the law school will take your money, no problem, if you intent to take the bar exam that is another matter.

What everybody else said: Disclose, disclose, disclose.

Depending on the circumstances, it won't be a big deal. Many people have done dumb things and been admitted to law school and the bar without further issue. Just don't go and execute an endangered bird in Vegas.
